40: La Malinche And Mexican Culture, Or “It Wasn’t My Greatest Cultural Faux-Pas…”

As Dean and Tom (metaphorically) cross the Rio Grande in this episode, they find themselves wading into the rich complexities of Mexican culture and identity – particularly, into the shifting impact of the historical figure La Malinche. Plus, Dean revisits his great Mexican cultural faux-pas, which may or may not have involved male genitalia; you’ll have to listen to find out! Then, don’t forget to read about Dean’s greatest-ever cultural faux-pas, and much much more, by subscribing to Dean’s Substack here (yes, this is a plug)!
