Wondery and Sonoro’s Potato is a suspense and drama podcast where one of its main themes is loyalty. Abigail “Abi” Smith whose mother is Mexican and late father is white. As an ICE agent, Abi has always believed it was her duty to protect the southern US border, until her undocumented brother gets deported back to Mexico. In her journey to help her brother, Abi seems to discover more about herself and her late father, who’d served as a police officer. These episodes will unpack many secrets Abi’s mother kept from her about her late father, which will help Abi discover more about her identity as a Mexican American woman, and will help her guide her moral compass.
This podcast explores the confrontation between the naivety of an American woman and the dark reality of a lawless frontier in a gripping story about family, loyalty and what homeland means.
