Stephanie Gaitán is a writer, editor, and mother from the Bronx whose world has been featured in 433. Her past-times include laughing, sharing photos of cute everything with her friends, and binge-watching childhood TV shows with her daughter. Her work has also been featured in Stone of Madness Press, Voyage YA, and Palabritas, and she has work forthcoming in LaLibreta. You can find her on Twitter @GaitanWrites and on Instagram @JupiterGaitan. On this episode, we discuss the value of writing workshops and MFA programs, Stephanie’s academic background, her passions, depression, effects of social media on society, our personal politics, socialism vs capitalism, UBI, SF movies and series that have influenced us, mixed identity, post-colonialism, the writing process, and much more. She also reads from an upcoming work titled “Hood Phantom.”  Episodes are also posted on Youtube on a new channel, Jim Nog Pod.  Currently, I am a one-man show. JNP takes a lot of effort and time.
