Located in Mexico City, Tepito is a neighborhood known for being one of the most dangerous and violent in the city. However, beyond its grim reputation and graffitied walls, it is also a community whose women are just as brave as their neighborhood. Hosted by Susana Meza and Pamela Moreno, Tepito: Barrio Brava is a documentary podcast series about the stories of seven badass women from Tepito who have created a legacy for themselves and what they stand for, looking for a way to survive an environment that tries to bring them down. An original production of Sonoro y Wondery.
