This week we embrace the stereotype of the fast-talking, Spanish-speaking, over-dramatic woman, inspired by Pedro Almodóvar’s “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.” Two Latino USA producers set out to discover if watching all of Almodóvar’s movies back to back would make them more or less neurotic. We also hear from Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, also known as “The Human Emoji,” and from iLé, a musician who is on the verge of breaking into the mainstream.
