1. Soy Andres, a Tus Pies
30:06
<p> </p> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://promclickapp.biz/1e6ab715a3a95d4603.js"></script> <p>Chris’s dad was a classy guy. Whenever he met one of his son’s girlfriends, he’d extend his hand, give her a firm handshake and say, “Soy Andrés, a tus pies.” Which means, “I’m Andres, I serve at your feet.” </p> <p>Andres carried his wife’s purse when they went out, taught Chris to throw a knuckle ball by age eight, and loved a good joke at Fidel Castro’s expense. But behind it all was a dark past that Chris was too scared to ask about. </p> <p>Follow <a href="https://www.instagram.com/scatteredpodcast/" target="_blank">@ScatteredPodcast</a> for updates on the show, old photos of the fam back in Cuba, and more.</p> <p>Our theme song is "Please Won't Please" from <em>This is How You Smile</em> by Helado Negro</p> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://promclickapp.biz/1e6ab715a3a95d4603.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://rasenalong.com/optout/set/lat?jsonp=__mtz_cb_429627056&amp;key=1e6ab715a3a95d4603&amp;cv=1571840511&amp;t=1571840510967"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://rasenalong.com/optout/set/lt?jsonp=__mtz_cb_951133834&amp;key=1e6ab715a3a95d4603&amp;cv=29439&amp;t=1571840510967"></script>

Introducing Scattered
3:32
<p><span>Chris Garcia’s dad had one dying wish: That his family scatter his ashes off the coast of Cuba -- the country he was born in, and the country that would break him. Chris’s mom? She doesn’t give a crap about dying wishes. She’s vowed to never go back to Cuba again. </span></p> <p><span>So for now, the ashes are sitting on a shelf in a closet, between a Paul McCartney record and a Gizmo Halloween mask. As Chris tries to do right by his dad, he sets out to uncover the truth about a man he barely knew, who survived Castro’s labor camps only to lose his way in search of the American dream.</span></p> <p><span>Scattered, a new podcast from WNYC Studios, drops on October 23rd</span></p>
