Episode 241 features an interview recorded in 2006 with Lila Downs. The daughter of an American father and a Mixtecha Indian mother, Lila Downs started her career playing bars and cantinas in Mexico, eventually becoming a successful artist. A multi Grammy Award winning musician, Lila has recently released a new single called Dark Eyes, a song about essential workers — in particular, workers from Native American communities, who - she says - are often overlooked. Her concern is that there is still is a lot of discrimination and racism in the US  and it's a difficult thing to face, especially when they are the people who are providing much of the food and services.
