For most Americans, Cinco De Mayo is merely one round in the Holy Trinity of Drinking Holidays - along with St. Patrick's Day and New Year's Eve. But is there more to the story? Nikki Boyer serves up giant, salt-rimmed glasses of history with Dr. David Hayes-Bautista (director of UCLA's Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture) and celebrated artist Lalo Alcaraz (creator of the comic strip "La Cucaracha"). They discuss the true, inspiring, David-and-Goliath story behind this festive annual North American celebration.

New episodes come out every Thursday.
