“You never know the stories that people carry, and sometimes, those stories are best shared through song. “Si Yo Fuera Una Cancion” (If I Were a Song) is a podcast about people, their stories, and their lives around Santa Ana, California. Presented in both Spanish and English, this podcast offers a portrait of the city through people’s own words, in their own voices. Music becomes a window into the socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural tapestry that makes Santa Ana such a special place.

The goal of this community blog is to involve, engage, and give a platform for folks with connections to Santa Ana to reflect on themes and ideas posed by episodes of the podcast. We are excited to hear more from local writers, poets, artists, and musicians about topics ranging from migration to childhood memories with a focus on how these different aspects of our lives have shaped who we are and what we aspire to become.
