Whooping Cough and Moon Poet talk about José Esteban Muñoz's theory on the performance of race and depression amongst Latinx individuals. This episode is the first part of a series where they will read and talk about queer theory and art. You do not need to have read Muñoz's article "Feeling Brown, Feeling Down: Latina Affect, the Performativity of Race, and the Depressive Position," but it's worth checking it out if you can!
