"Garcia’s deep reverence for the artist makes for powerful storytelling when matched with investigative reporting on the work and political significance of Selena."

"I was initially skeptical of the tone, worried that Garcia’s perspective might lead her to pull punches with interviewees. But the host’s love for the singer is an asset, not a distraction—she asks the hard questions."
Nicholas Quah • Vulture • May 7, 2021
"Garcia is as much a subject of this podcast as the icon being considered. She stands as evidence of Selena’s impact, carrying forth the singer’s legacy by claiming back her narrative in bold, powerful ways."
