From bilingual filmmaker to podcast storyteller, listen to the newest episode of Mixing It Up With Maggi and hear me tell a scary story from Peru!
In the episode, Maggi and I chat about the intersection between horror folktales and Latinx culture. La Casa Matusita is a story about a haunted house in central Lima that was once owned by a wealthy man. Having mistreated his servants for many years, they seek their revenge. Listen to my reading of this haunting tale in Spanish with a discussion in English.
