BONUS: Inherited Podcast “Maíz es Vida” by Paloma Moreno Jiménez

Hey As She Rises listeners! Today, we’re bringing you a bonus episode from the Inherited podcast, told by one of our very own team members at WMN: Paloma Moreno Jiménez. Inherited is a climate storytelling podcast by, for, and about young people across the globe. In this episode of the show, storyteller Paloma Moreno Jiménez conjures a folkloric audio fiction about the cross-cultural, agricultural importance of corn, and its relationship with humanity. Her experimental, sound-lush story anthropomorphizes the “three sisters” crops – Maíz (Corn), Calabaza (Squash), and Frijol (Bean) – as real sisters, and follows the eldest, Maíz, as she shares the story of a fantastical journey into the spirit world with her grandchild on the other side. Special thanks to Ace the Storyteller for contributing original music to this episode. Inherited is a production of YR Media and distributed by Critical Frequency.
