NM107 – Kindness of Strangers

Sometimes, when you most need a reminder about the good in this world, you come across a story (or two) about the kindness of strangers. (more…)

NM0044 – Dreams Come True

Hello Friends! For the past 3 episodes, I have had the privilege of sharing sharing stories about benevolent Americans working to build homes for the seriously poor in Puerto Penasco, or Rocky Point, Mexico. We have visited the construction sites to see all the volunteers hard at work. Through two U.S.-based organizations (i6Eight and Families Helping Families Mexico) hundreds of people ranging from young kids to grandparents have built dozens of homes. The volunteers certainly do it for selfless reasons; helping to break the cycle of poverty for so many families. But the truth is, they get something pretty special…

NM0043 – Families Helping Families Christmas Spirit

Hello Friends! My family just returned from a quick weekend trip to Puerto Peñasco, or Rocky Point, Mexico. With that lovely beach scene still fresh in my mind I am especially excited to share this episode with you now. It is part 3 of my special 4-part series on the volunteer work being done by American groups in Puerto Peñasco, or Rocky point, Mexico. Specifically, this episode focuses on the organization known as "Families Helping Families" and their Christmastime trip to build homes for the impoverished community there. With the help of more fabulous footage from Jonathan Cracroft we get…

NM0040 – Manic Mommies Escape

Hello Friends, I don't know about the rest of you, but this has been one trying year for my family; a lot of loss, a lot of heartache and a lot of figuring out how to live with the new "normal." As we all reassess, regroup and move forward, one of the best things I decided to do recently was to go on a ladies-only weekend. Because I have gone on this "Manic Mommies Escape" twice before (and because I once featured the Manic Mommies podcast here on New Mexicast: Click here to see that story) I knew many of…

NM0032 – Night Crossing

Click to play Hello Friends and a belated Happy New Year! This quick audio episode explains a bit about why things have been so quiet around here lately. Exciting things are on the horizon! I can't wait to share them with all of you. Lots of love, Rosa Linda

HM0001 – Blog: Surprises

Hello Friends! As I mentioned at the end of the last episode (NM0030 - Llama Trek), I am adding a blogging element to New Mexicast, to start introducing some of the wild family adventures we are experiencing right now. The first several entries were written about a month ago, really just as a personal journal. But I think they help set the stage for future blog entries. So, without further adieux... here is New Mexicast's first blog entry (crowd goes wild!): September 21, 2009   -   Monday, 6:25am I have a crazy secret. Actually, it's a family secret and we've been…

TOTALLY TAOS - New Mexicast’s Most Enchanting Video Podcast takes an audio detour up to the stunning Taos valley for a whirlwind tour. I really should call these audio episodes “Rosa Linda’s Ramblings” because that’s really what they are! As our loyal viewers know, audio podcasts like this are occasional additions to the video podcasts which I post here on New Mexicast every other week. In this audio episode I share some of the juggling that needed to be done to arrange a 2 day trip to Taos, New Mexico to shoot three upcoming stories (including; Dennis Hopper at the…

BALANCING ACT - As many of you know, New Mexico's most enchanting video podcast is also an occasional audio podcast. This week's audio episode is all about finding balance. Balance between time at home and time for work; between taking the girls with me on a shoot so they can share in the experience and getting the best story possible; and so on. This search for balance is the story of my life, really. Now that I know that the majority of you would like to hear an occasional audio episode (based on the poll we did that showed about…

NM0022 – Flamenco Encore

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast is back with a Flamenco encore! After posting the previous episode of New Mexicast about "Flamenco in New Mexico," I got the following email from a viewer: "This was a fascinating episode. I have one criticism - we did not get a sense of the power of the flamenco dance and music -the podcast is all a little too "sweet" maybe. Odd that this midwestern Jewish old lady knows about flamenco. But I saw it several times on the stage as an adult. I went to those performances because I had heard the…

NM0019 – Fiery Foods

- New Mexico's most Enchanting Video Podcast gets even hotter this week with a trip to the Fiery Foods and BBQ Show at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque. I first interviewed Dave DeWitt, Co-Producer of the Fiery Foods & BBQ Show, more than 10 years ago right after I moved to Albuquerque to work at KOAT-7. Back then I didn't know the first thing about chile (or chili for that matter). That interview was a crash course in Southwestern cuisine for me. While I am still a certified "wimp" when it comes to spicy food, I have come…
