Episode 23 – Author Interview: American Brujeria feat. J. Allen Cross

On today’s show, our host Meda Trelles is joined by J. Allen Cross, the author of American Brujeria. How often can y’all say that you just had a chat with a witch??…Exactly! If you have not heard of this book, it a practical hands-on guide to Mexican-American folk magic. For my Latinx listeners, this book will take you back your childhood ghost stories, faith, and perhaps even help you understand why our superstitious tias used an egg for cleansing. For my non-Latinx listeners, you will be able to peek behind the curtain of many traditions and stories from Mexico, ghost story included!
