Listen live on June 2 at 12:40 p.m.! You can also find the segments online here. Check it out, familia!

Later this month, we will be launching a new and improved Austin Vida site thanks to a big announcement we’ll make soon. We’re excited and can’t wait to show y’all! We’ll also be launching our summer membership drive in mid-June. Stay tuned and please give us grace if technology doesn’t cooperate during this period of site transition. Gracias!
