Latin Pulse Returns Online

Protestors in Tijuana, Mexico demonstrate against the narco-trafficking gangs and their corruption.

by Rick Rockwell

This post is a bit of a programming advisory about the revival of sorts of a notable public affairs program called Latin Pulse, which was produced by Link TV for four years, but has not been produced by that satellite network since 2010.

With the support of Link TV and the School of Communication at American University, the program is returning as a podcast, which can be downloaded or streamed online or through iTunes.

The first program features in-depth interviews about the effects of the drug war in Mexico on that country’s fragile democracy and about Cuba’s attempts at economic reform.  Although this program includes topics fairly close to the U.S., future programs will range throughout Latin America.  If you have an interest in listening to the program, please click here to download or stream the podcast.
