One family in Berkeley, California, uses an unusual word to describe the way their Latino and Jewish immigrant heritages interweave. Reporter Maya Cueva takes us inside her family life, a close-knit group with vast differences in terms of status and opportunity. Meshugganismo, one might say.

Amazingly great!!!!!!! Thank you Maya Cueva
Enjoyed the show earlier today. And great term-.mishuganismo. Yiddish lives on. Hi Barbara, Quentin, & the rest of the west coast branch of the family. Thanks Ethan for sharing it and Maria et al for producing it.
Congrats to you both!
What a wonderful piece of radio journalism. You did an excellent job of explaining how two different cultures collide and mesh in your family. I was particularly interested in your experience of being “mixed” and feeling like you weren’t quite prepared for it. Great work – keep telling interesting stories!
Wonderful piece. Makes me wonder if I sinned by omission or comission in the same way with my twins, preparing or not preparing them to face discrimination as Latinos or children of Latino and non-Latino parents. Hmmm
Hey Maya and Liza,
I finally got to watch this, and enjoyed it so much. In one place it even brought tears! Keep up the good work! See you tomorrow evening! Love, Patty
