WHOOOOO do we interview this week? Why, none other the Tex-Mex Owl Witch, La Lechuza! Swoop on down for cold Modelo and campfire chat as La Lechuza tells her story of hauntings and heartbreak. La Lechuza is a bruja, an owl witch, whose stories echo across the Mexico & Texas boarder of the Rio Grande. With roots in indigenous cultures, La Lechuza serves as a example of  ancient oral traditions filtered through the Spanish Inquisition and into the present day. 

Constanza, La Lechuza, is voiced by Margarita Talamantes, a longtime friend and listener of the show. Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, Margarita operates her own baking business as well as working in finances. You can follow her on Instagram @
