Abstract

Podcasting has become a form of disseminating information as well as for advocating social change. This paper utilizes the popular mainstream form of artivism (podcasts) in order to underscore the disparities in the healthcare system that specifically affect the Latinx community. These social inequalities that provide a lack of access to care include language/cultural barriers, geographical accessibility, and the cost of health care. These various podcasts use personal anecdotes and statistics to highlight the gaps in our healthcare system and to encourage the listeners to advocate for change.
