It’s our very last episode of 2017! To help us reflect on the year in representation, we’re joined by three friends of the show: Alex Jung, a writer for Vulture; Antonia Cereijido, a producer at Latino USA; and Tiffany Vazquez, a host at Turner Classic Movies.

Revisit some of Represent’s highlights from this year:
