QPM is a bilingual podcast telling the stories of Latinos chasing their dreams from the Corn States to the Great Lakes of Minnesota.

¿Qué Pasa, Midwest? is a bilingual podcast that creates a sense of community for Midwestern Latinx who are missing an essential piece of their cultural identity. We do that by sharing their stories to create a sense of hope and alliance. We also foster education on divisive issues.
