48 Podcast – In Closed Mouths

January 23, 2024

I’ve been a massive fan of podcasts for a bunch of years. I listen to them while walking, running, seeking inspiration, or wanting to learn about a topic, even on long car journeys—well, almost always! I don’t prefer specific themes except for horror and mundane things, which are my human favourites.

🎙️Today, let’s talk about a podcast that left me VERY impacted; it was like an earthquake of emotions. As a child, I wasn’t a fan of any particular artist, but I vividly remember the time I saw Gloria Trevi singing on TV; she caught my attention. She had songs I hated and others I liked a lot. Sometimes, her personality created conflict for me; I didn’t know how much was real and how much was part of the character. Time went by this way.

When I first heard about the “Clan Trevi-Andrade,” everything seemed confusing, even illogical. I remember those images of them in jail, and especially the image of “Mary Boquitas,” who seemed to be a completely extinguished, out-of-control woman. Television told us the story in a manipulated way, according to its interests. I couldn’t believe how Gloria Trevi behaved, spoke, and looked, let alone all the women who were part of that “clan – sect.”

This year, after a long time and circumstances, the podcast “In Closed Mouths” came out, where Raquenel (Mary Boquitas) tells her story. At first, I thought it would be more of the same, but I was wrong.

🥲This podcast moved me a lot; it made me reflect on the wheel of life and how easily we judge other people’s stories based on how morbid the media can be. I don’t know if everything Raquenel says is true. Still, I think it’s important to listen to these stories to understand our own misery, to be alert to things like cults, human trafficking, how dangerous it is when adults take advantage of the innocence of minors, how challenging it is to be a father or mother, among other things. It’s a sad podcast worth listening to for reflection, questioning, and action.

Thanks for reading.

Have a great day! 😘
