James: In this episode of Podcast Tactics, a father and daughter give tips and advice for launching a podcast with origins rooted in a Mexico City daily radio show that dates back to the mid 1990s.

Thanks for listening. Let’s get into it!

Joining me right now is in Enrique and Jimena

Enrique: yes, well, Mexico city. Hi to Los Angeles.

James: It’s I’m in San Diego. Actually. You are

Enrique: much neater just to jump away

James: from us. Right? Right. Exactly. Exactly. And the .  I’ll programmer

Enrique: now. Thank you very much for inviting us. Sorry. So this is going to be a bilingual interview.

James: That’s going to be the extent of my Spanish speaking there. I, I apologize in

Enrique: advance. Oh, but really thank you because my English is not so good. I had to talk to myself to teach myself. Yeah, I read goes, he may not really think in English and speaks English perfectly. So she’s my savior,

Jimena: my lightsaber. Oh, wow.


Enrique: Yeah. Anything that I confused you with? You can ask her to clarify,

James: well, let’s talk about your podcast. What’s the name of it and what’s it about. Well,

Enrique: the name is “La Vela” – the candle. And we have started really as a radio show. The last century, the 96, from 96 to 2003, we were doing a daily life radio show.

Uh, that was, uh, really successful. Uh, but we have to stop in 2003. Uh, the concept was three people joining together in the night. That’s why the candle to symbolize that little light that could congregate all the people to, uh, around it, to talk, to share ideas, opinions, music, eh, information. And to have out at Guth, not night, but, uh, the wee hours from three to 6:00 AM we started.

Oh, wow. Okay. It was really a passion work, a passion job. So we were like three months broadcasting in those times. And we got moved from 10 to 12:00 PM more recently. Yeah. Normal time. And, uh, after we have to let, uh, uh, to stop doing the show, although we were the first show that broadcasted a stream, really from Mexico in 98.

BSP shoutcast was the first plugging into the stream life, uh, uh, audio, but the internet internet was not ready for what we wanted to do. Uh, with the show after we got off air on radio. So I just stopped.

Jimena: Uh, but now, uh, with the whole pandemic and inquiry team, we were trying to figure out a way to do something.

And my dad was just like, Hey, let’s bring it back. But now as a podcast, so we just had to get ready. At first, it started as a podcast, like opinion, very talk show kind of podcast. And suddenly it turned into a father, daughter podcast talking about endless topics, whether it goes like, whether we talk about dust or like school, we talk about everything,

Enrique: a different subject each, each night night.

I don’t like niche podcast really, because you know what you are going to hear. You are going to listen to the same things over and over and over maybe variations. And I prefer for the people to be surprised to find out that you can have an hour and a half on a live show daily, eh, and speak about. The school.

How, how is the school doing monies, the school, the concept from where, where does it come from? Okay. Let’s talk about ancient Prussia and the industrial revolution.

Jimena: And also, uh, we like to put in music into her podcast. So we. In between six and seven songs that go along with our topic that can help us either close a section of our topic or open a new,

Enrique: yeah.

The requisite is a date. Add to the topic to give us a starting point or

Jimena: a conclusion, kind of like a conversation starter or as my dad said, like a little conclusion for whatever we were talking about.

James: So let’s go back to 2003. I’m curious to why it ended Lavella ended back.

Enrique: Labella ended because the radio station that we were in, went into financial difficulties and it started sailing it’s time to the best bidder.

Uh, so, uh, suddenly, uh, uh, UFO and other aliens and Sasquatch show was inserted before us and a Christian Church after us for five hours and our sponsors, we had. Very good. The sponsors for the time. Now they are almost extinct like blockbuster. Yes. I bet your rental store that it was announcing itself on radio.

Really strange. We were a bizarre program me, so they told us I don’t want to sponsor you on that station. Look for another place. And when we. A place to start again. Suddenly daddy’s station got into problems and we were left without a space. So we had to say, okay, That’s that was our run eight years.

Okay. It was good, but now we are back and we are back renewing

James: everything. So between 2003, and I think you guys started this up in December of 2020, right? Yeah. That’s a, that’s a big gap there. I’m curious to know. So the father daughter, you know, co-hosting combination who’s ideal is that it didn’t,

Jimena: it wasn’t actually anyone’s idea.

We were going to. Third host with us, but because of the pandemic and everything, it would be hard for testing and everything. So we ended up just being us two, doing even every, every single engineering

Enrique: operating programming. So BAS uh, managing the social networks, the background music.

Jimena: Yeah, but we don’t don’t really know when it turned into a father daughter podcast.

Cause we just started talking and streaming and everyone started describing the. As a, it’s a father daughter podcast, and they talk about this and

Enrique: they do this and they play music. The first sentence to define us is a father and daughter that speak about it. Okay. Let’s, let’s take advantage of that. We have very good communication.

Jimena: We’re very close, which is

Enrique: great. We have no taboo subjects between us where, as an example, we’re

Jimena: talking about nipples and boobs and how case March, at least in Mexico, it’s very feminist.

Enrique: So.

Jimena: And we have marches and little activities that we do to like help people find out what’s going on. So we. As the podcast with our platform, we want to talk about these subjects.

So although some people can be informed

Enrique: in a phone way, there aren’t any laughs no serious things done.

James: Yeah. You know, I do, I do want to talk cause I did listen to an episode, the one that you guys released today, and I do want to talk about that. But before we get into that, I do have a couple of questions before we get into that, please.

James do. So I’m curious about, let’s start with what you guys. Um, well, what do you guys hate about podcasting Humana? I’m going to start with you first.

Jimena: I kind of hate the fact that you have to learn so much as in like how to speak to a microphone or probably the comment sections. Cause sometimes they’re so extensive and I can read every single comment when we’re live streaming.

But other than that, I’m really enjoying it. I don’t think there’s anything that I don’t like. Because it’s actually lots of fun and I keep learning new stuff every day that we do it.

Enrique: I can say I hate something. I love all the, all of these paraphernalia to communicate with others, to really reach someone and have a feedback at our show is mainly live show, a live show where we invite people to comment, to give us new thoughts, new ideas, and then take the show to that direction.

Even if we didn’t start it like that. So maybe the only thing is technical things. As an example, I wa I bought three cameras, not very good ones. We are a very low budget thing. Despite all this, we have all these before them. We didn’t buy it for the bad. I wanted to switch between cameras and I haven’t found a way that I can do it without Humana tapping buttons on the iPad to switch from a scene to scene, to give the audience a much active, uh, image.

So those technical details are the ones that I’m not liking too much because I have to go. I enter first time to the scores. I lost my virginity on discord. I went there and I ask, and I beg for, for help for those junk people that are really the ones that know how to do things right now. So I’m discovering a lot of things, but I’m also, uh, bumping my head sometimes with some walls.

So that’s the only thing that I don’t.

James: That is definitely part of the journey for sure. Let’s look at the flip side and predicted, let me start with you. What do you love about podcasting? Oh, everything,

Enrique: everything. Uh, my main, uh, career, uh, has been made on theater. So I really love to communicate with people live directly, uh, to change, change someone’s point of view, to give them a new doubt.

I don’t, I never wanted to give an answer, but I want to provoke a lot of questions. So to be able to communicate those ideas and to see if they have an effect, I, I just love the communication part of all this, that ability.

James: That’s beautiful.

Jimena: Thanks. Oh, and honestly, I love everything too. Like from researching a new topic that I don’t really know much about it for the podcast to reading new poet poetry or kind of new music.

Enrique: Yes. There’s lyrics changing a lot of music.

Jimena: We have a very similar music tastes, but sometimes I venture into more new stuff. So I just go like, oh, you have to listen to this album. It’s great. Or even with our youth, how do we call it? The people that see us.

Enrique: Okay. We have a name for the people that watches our show.

Yeah, that is Bayla notice. So like candles now, candles notes.

James: Oh, candle that’s. Yeah,

Jimena: something like that. Yeah. So whenever they comment, they recommend his movies or books or poetry or

Enrique: music, or post a BDO or a post.

Jimena: And their opinions really are what makes the program. So it’s pretty cool. And I just really, really love about learn.

I just love learning. Yeah. Cause you there’s people that are still commenting on podcasts that we did maybe a month ago and they’re still giving their opinions, which is great because then you can kind of create your new opinions based on.

Enrique: It is like a novel lunch. We start with a little snowball and suddenly huge one, but we started with 30 little snowballs.

So the avalanche is getting crazy and I love

James: it. Yeah. I was going to ask you guys, so these candle knots that you have, you know, your I’m going to call them your fans. I mean, have you been able to measure them? You know, I mean, what is, what does it look like in terms of your audio?

Enrique: Uh, not really, uh, not big to my standards because when we were on radio, the average that was calculated was between 60,000 and 80,000 people listening each, each night.

So I know that internet is not going to be as big and he’s going to take us.

Jimena: Yeah, I think what my dad’s trying to say, it’s not that easy because everyone has a platform now. So it’s super hard to like dive into a new podcast. Cause there’s so much variety of everything.

Enrique: You are one of Y a hundred thousand that is just raising the hand and paid for it to be seen.

So someone listens to it. We know, uh, because, uh, I have to put modesty apart. We are doing a very good show. Uh, very professionally made, uh, with, uh, a good structure. Good information, excellent music, uh, enjoyable parts. So we know that when they reach us, they are going to stay. Believe me, the hard part is to wave and say, Hey, here, visit me.

Jimena: We’ve struggled a lot specially on social media because people here in Mexico barely use Facebook. And it’s one of the way it’s one of the websites that we use to stream. And then YouTube. It’s great. We love. But some people like other kinds of content for YouTube and then Instagram or trying, but it’s hard to get that engagement at first, but we’re still trying to, we’re not

Enrique: going to give up.

We have a small audience right now, a small fan base from around 200, 250 people that listen to us or be on the live shows, uh, along the week. And we are started to plan a marketing strategy, but. That costs and believe me, money is not a,

one of the ideas of bringing Labella back. It was exactly because of that. I’m a theater actor and director and the send cards have been the most impacted three all over the world with this pandemic. We are still completely shut. So we have to find another way to maybe in the near future may start to generate some yeah.

James: How do you guys, how did you evolve the podcast into like a live episode? I mean, did you, I don’t think you guys started out that way, right? It was originally a podcast.

Enrique: And then you started that as a live show and you start, okay. Labella was always a radio live show. Okay.

Jimena: And it’s based mainly on the, on our viewers opinions or listeners opinions.

So if we’re talking maybe about crazy food, Uh, they can change it to crazy Gurmeet food and like Michelin star restaurants. So we have to quickly change this object to that

Enrique: glory cuisine. Then we just follow it. Yeah.

Jimena: And there’s still no platform that allows you to just stream audio, but read common.

Enrique: It’s a lot more creativity knowledge, good anecdotes in 200 people watching. So, uh, we invite them to, to really be a part of the show, maybe not, uh, speaking on her, but through the comments and we all. When we returned from the song first time, what did the audience says? Because that’s the direction the show is going.

Yeah. That’s what

Jimena: sets the tone for us. And sometimes it does get a little sad. Sometimes it gets very happy and messy and fun, but it’s honestly very enjoyable

Enrique: and yeah, adrenaline of doing a live show. If, if your listeners, your other podcasters, haven’t done one. Please do it. You will become addictive to the live

James: shows.

I have interviewed a couple of other podcasters that have went into that direction. And it’s interesting because I believe almost all of them are co-hosted so it’s two and they go live also. So it’s an interesting dynamic. I mean, I was going to ask you guys. Um, you know, Humana for you, you know, how is it co-hosting with your dad?

Jimena: It’s, it’s very great. Honestly, it’s lots of fun because we’re very similar with everything, but it’s kind of crazy sometimes. Cause we both talk a lot. So sometimes yeah, we’re both very stubborn. So we try to get as much time before the other one interrupts us and changes the topic. So it’s pretty fun.

Sometimes there’s a little bit of like, Yeah, that noise, but, um, honestly it’s lots of fun and it’s part of it. And in the end it turns out great. So I just love doing it with my dad.

Enrique: It’s a great part of it. For me. It has been a really joyful journey. If you listen to one of our first episodes and you listen to us now, there has been.

A radical change in Humana. Humana was very shy with the microphone. Oh, wow. She’s yeah. Believe me. She’s not shy anywhere else, but the microphone is a real responsibility and she feels it like that. So she has been releasing herself and letting herself go and growing and growing. And I really love it.

Sometimes she starts to speaking and doesn’t give me the microphone back for some minutes. I really, really enjoy it. That’s the word that I wanted to, I don’t want to be doing Labella in 10 years, me, but I want Labella to continue with Humana and with other generation that Labella really becomes a 21st century show for 21st century people.

And from the back. I’m a Relic. So all I have to do is pass the experience, pass the knowledge so they can have higher platform to jump from and let’s see where the, where the show and where they can read. I really love that part. I, I, your

James: it’s like you’re passing on the torch, you know, you’re, you’re like, yeah, that’s, that’s a, that’s a really neat kind of generational transfer of this tradition of the spoken word.

Right. Um, you know, especially in your community, It

Enrique: showed James, the people is waiting for us to have a generational

Jimena: clash. Yeah. Everyone has told us that they want a generational clash, but things were very similar. We have very similar, similar opinions and ideas and like in general. So

Enrique: the first, sometimes in the form or in a little detail,

Jimena: but we usually never have that

Enrique: glass.

It’s like conversing with a better version of myself. Aw, that’s

James: awesome. So let’s get into an episode discussion. I listened to the one hit wonders demo HEDIS episode, which feminine? Yes.

Enrique: And I blessed to start the women’s month. Excited. Yeah.

James: Yeah. Yeah. Right. I mean, you know, I think everybody knows my Spanish is horrible.

I mean, I tried speaking at the beginning of this episode. Um, I do understand a little bit though. And it was, it was, uh, I, I, I understood enough to enjoy the show. I mean, your chemistry comes through, even if you don’t understand Stan Spanish, I hear you guys laughing with each other. Um, you guys are clearly bantering with each other.

Um, it is a lot of fun to listen to. You guys have fun together, uh, on the shelf

Enrique: really? Oh, he got goosebumps every time something someone says good things about the podcast I read. I get really emotional. Yeah, I

James: did it. Yeah. I mean, it was, it was a, I’m getting goosebumps now, too. I mean, it was really, it was cool too.

To hear how connected you guys are on the air with each other like that. I, I really, um, I really appreciate it and it made me wish that I understood more Spanish.

Enrique: Oh, don’t worry. YouTube is already adding subtitles to some of our episodes. So you can browse. Oh, yeah, yeah,

Jimena: yeah. So far we only have to close captioning in Spanish.

We’re trying to figure out a way to also have it in English. Let’s

Enrique: make an advertisement. If you want to practice your Spanish, go to Labella podcasts on YouTube and listen to our episodes either you understand, or he laugh. Don’t worry.

Jimena: Are you enjoying

Enrique: the music or did you get the music? That is mainly me.

James: So to kind of nerd out a little bit. I mean, one of the first things that I did notice was the quality of your sound. I mean, I knew, you know, because of your submission that you had a radio background, but like, I mean, this, it really shines through and the quality of your guys’s

Enrique: sound. Thank you. Thank you very much.

It is not a very expensive set up. Believe me. Uh, in fact, we have the. Part of a wonderful man that has been believing in me for 10 years and decided to invest a little bit in all of these, uh, I’m talking below $3,000. For everything, the computer, the mixer microphones, everything. It, it was, uh, a really cheap industry.

Plus we’re

Jimena: also working with stuff that we already had, like our tablets or the iPads or our phones,

Enrique: our Kimball’s, everything that has been thrown into this. But the sound is really important to me because I think even if you make a very good show with image, the image is. 10, 15% of the show. The real quality of a show is what is said, what is played, but the people listened to.

So I really went, uh, for the details, a good microphone, uh, a good mixer, very small one. It is only a channel. Uh, we connected the iPad, uh, to the mixer to have background music, to add to the rhythm and the atmosphere. Uh, that’s something that I would like to share with other podcasters don’t ever underestimate the background.

It’s it’s an art. If you find the perfect music to make a background, it would boost your, your, the quality of your podcasts while maybe 40%, 30% with a good background

James: music. Now that I know that you guys all have your show. Our live. One of the questions that I had for you was who is doing the mixing or the editing of your shows, but they’re all live, right?

So there’s no editing,

Enrique: no editing

James: at all. Now my mind is blown. I’m going to tell you why, because when I was listening to the one hit wonders the new HEDIS, or you thought for sure, I was like, man, how it sounds so smooth and like there’s no. Um, well, I mean, I don’t know if I would’ve, but it just sounded put together so well, and I was really impressed by that.

And now I’m even more impressed because it was a live, you know, capture.

Enrique: We have some preparation, we never use a, uh, guideline or anything. Uh, we don’t write the show beforehand, but we talk a lot. Okay. We are going to talk about one kid wanders. What’s the order of the songs. Let’s have some information.

What are you going to talk about? You are going to talk about the lyrics and I talk about the music. Okay. So we, we prepare what we are going to say, but not how, because it’s spontaneity. I don’t know if that, if that’s okay.

James: Yeah. Spontaneity being a

Enrique: spontaneous. I think it is, uh, a quality that people look for, something not prepared, something else.


Jimena: looks very scripted please. Also, with when it comes to the technical stuff, it’s kind of crazy because, uh, during the live shows, if you see the video, you can see me pushing on the iPad, like tapping on it so we can change. See that my dad getting confused with the background music as to which one’s playing

Enrique: as an example, there it goes.

Okay. Now. We are on interview with James Loring, Henry Marbella. Thank you very much for coming to our show. Thank you for having

Jimena: me back room

Enrique: music. Wow. Do you have the run music there? So that’s it. That’s the idea. And we have to control everything seeding here. So we have to find the tools and to do everything.

James: Wait, but

Jimena: okay, go ahead. Honestly at most for D editing that we do, it’s usually just for uploading it to iHeart, iHeart, radio, anchor, Spotify, and every single platform, just so like either that the music’s not too loud or a little bit over of our voices or just cropping out little silence.

Enrique: I use my experience as an audio editor.

Uh, I have produce, uh, some audio. I was a musician. I wear a Waasenaar on radio and I love sound. So, uh, I normalize and I cut this, the small silences. Are always there. Uh, especially when you have to switch from the labor scene to a song, maybe there is a one second that I don’t want the, the podcast listener to suffer.

One second.  really long time when you are listening to something.

James: Let me ask you guys this and, uh, Enrique, I’m going to start with you. And Humana I’ve, I’ve liked you to answer this question also. So Enrique. Yeah. What do you want people to get out of listening to your show? Why should they listen to your podcast

Enrique: at first that they will know that if they invest and now we’re in a half on a show, they will feel better after it, maybe because they listen to a new information that, uh, You track them and made them curious about something maybe because they, uh, find found, uh, a new question to ask from themselves, maybe because they listened to a new song, but mainly because they.

Immersed into a, an enjoyable atmosphere. I think that if no one remembers exactly what we talk about, but they remembered the warm feeling of being with us. That’s what I want them to, to receive from the podcast, from the show that they feel like they visited us and we’re with France and enjoy the conversation.

Maybe after dinner. And they had a good time. That’s what I want them to feel.

James: I think you guys are successful with that. Humana. What are your thoughts on that? Well,

Jimena: I just want our, our audience to take away. As much information as they can like, and to get new opinions, to give us their opinions. Also just to, for everyone to learn something new, because that’s, what’s great about life.

I think that everyday you’re going to be able to learn something new, whether it’s a fun fact, maybe like, okay, dimples are made because of the muscles in the face, even if it’s just that little. Or the

Enrique: world? No. Who was the first

Jimena: person on the moon that we don’t know who the last one was? The last one. So it’s also a little bit fun to know a little bit about that, and I just want them to enjoy it and be happy and then suggest some topics or just compliment it.

It feels very I’m feeling

Enrique: part of something. I think that we, uh, at this time needs to feel that, that we are a part, an active part of something, not just followers, not just listeners, but contributors. That’s part of the life.

Jimena: Yeah. I feel like our live show with the audience. It turns into a little bit of a round table where everyone’s giving their opinions.

Everyone’s maybe refuting some of them, but in the end we can all get to an agreement and to a conclusion. And that’s great. 

Enrique: for the candle to be a community, not a show, to be a community where the show is only the starting point. And then everything is starts to ripple around.

James: So it’s time to get in our time machine.

Let’s go a year or two in the future. What are your hopes for Lavella

Enrique: podcast? First? 

Jimena: probably first for the pandemic to end, so we can take a little bit of the weight off her shoulders for the editing and the audio mainly. Oh, it started focusing on, okay. Here’s the topic. And. Instead of just focusing on, oh my God, the background music is so loud or this song is not playing or our cameras delayed.

Enrique: Oh, get other people to join to this effort. So maybe we can share the burden and all we’ll also share the reward. I want more people around working on this and believe me, I want this to be my main income. Um, aiming at that. I think it is possible. We are already working on additional content, extra content, uh, some that I thought and some suggested by defense.

Jimena: For example, we want to do review is for CDs or vinyls or albums. My dad has his huge vinyl collection. And I was thinking of Jose pitching in for him to also give his opinion about new music instead of just the vinyls, because that way he can also connect with the younger

Enrique: audience, uh, reading poetry.

And, uh, sometimes I bring a lot of poetry to a subject. Uh, for example, when we talked about the moon, I brought a lot of poetry about the moon. And some fans suggested why don’t you make poetry programs? Uh, okay. Yes. Why not? Maybe 30 minutes about poetry, about the, about singing or about music or about the eyes or the mouth.

Uh, and do these kinds of shows as a premium content. So maybe the defense will be so generous as to subscribe to our extra content. That’s, that’s our goal, really,

James: but I love, I love the energy that you both have and just the, the willingness to. Go for it and come up with these ideas and play with it and have fun and let your, your audience really kind of be there with you and guide you along the way.

You know, it’s like this, uh, I think you guys alluded to this a little bit earlier, but it’s like, you know, you two are hosting the show, but you’ve got all these other listeners that are kind of co-host to get along with you as well. And they’re doing the production of it too. So that’s a, that’s a really cool approach.

I like that.

Enrique: Is there another way to make something that is worth it. If you don’t let yourself go with all the passion with all the fun to really give yourself. Hundred percent into it. I don’t think there’s another way to make something that is, it will be worth a, yeah, that’s

James: a, that is a great point.


Enrique: I know that you are doing the same. Come on. You are not doing this because you are going to get rich and famous. You’re doing it because of the passion. Do you want to be a window for a nice thing that, uh, thank you for that window to let, uh, people see

James: us. Oh, it’s my pleasure. I mean, I do love connecting with people and yeah.

I mean, I, I feed off of the energy that you guys have, right? Like this creative energy, uh, is it’s so infectious and I, I, I just, uh, I want to ride that wave. Yeah. So guys, before we wrap things up, I have one more question for both of you and one, both of you to answer this question.

Enrique: That’s the main answer finally.

So the listeners get, uh, Brady boys at the end. So which,

James: which famous person or celebrity would you be excited to hear? They listened to your pod.

Enrique: Everyone. I don’t know if I want to celebrities opinion. Okay. I don’t know if I want some celebrity to listen to us. I have very good friends on theater and movies here in Mexico or on music.

And I know that they listen to us in fact, Part of the music that we start the show with is from a musician, an excellent musician here in Mexico.  that gave us the rights, the full rights to do with his songs, whatever we wanted. And I really thank him for that, but I prefer to find unexpected people listening to the podcast and, and sharing with us his experience.

We have when we were on radio, a lot of, uh, blind people that their only, uh, entertainment window was the radio. And we have so, so amazing feedback from. Uh, that I want those surprises much better than a celebrity. Oh, I’m just crazy. I ha I am fearful the five and I’m still dreaming. And I hope that I still dream at 85 when I close my eyes.

Okay. Turn

Jimena: celebrity, probably Greta van fleet, because they’re very similar to me. No Greta van fleet, the vet, the band, because those guys are great and don’t know why, but I feel like we have the same kind of train of thought and we have

Enrique: a lot. You want to see if you have a connection outside of your mind?


Jimena: it’s very, very teenage girl, even though I’m not a teenager anymore, I’m 20, but honestly older Greta van fleet. They’re great. They have great music. They stand up for what’s right in my mind. And in my

James: opinion, do another bonus question and Rica and both of you again, I’m hoping you can both answer this question.

Yes, James, what is the best experience you’ve had happened as a result of your pod?

Enrique: On this new, uh, era, eh, I still don’t have a favorite experience from the new year at the dad. After a show, we received obesity from, uh, uh, A guy who, well, he was like 22, 23. Uh, he went to the radio station and before we started the new show, he thanked the, he thank us for convincing him to not suicide, to not commit suicide.

And we didn’t know. Yeah. Obviously we were speaking about a subject and we were talking about our pond of views and our ideas, and we didn’t know that we could reach a person so deeply. So that was my best experience from that, from those eight years, to know that maybe one idea, maybe one phrase that I said.

With all the, the intention of being an enjoyable part of the night, reach someone and convince him to. Keep beat, keep leaving. So I think that’s my best experience so far. And I want that to re, to be repeated endlessly.

Jimena: Most of the people that listen to us that are like on the younger generation, they usually listen to us because they follow me on Instagram and they just listened to it.

But I really like it because after the show they always texted me like, Hey, you made me like, feel more comfy doing my homework and more carefree. Or we made them happy for that night. Cause some of my friends have, are going through some stuff pretty Jensie for, for us. So they text me like, oh, you made my day.
