This is really just me sitting in a room talking into a microphone from time to time. The subject is Latin America, the region I've worked on for more than 20 years: its challenges—especially security and human rights challenges—and the United States' complicated relationship with it. This podcast accompanies my personal blog, and doesn't reflect the views of my employer, whose much better podcast is at https://www.wola.org/format/podcast/.
