Culture and politics provide the themes on Latin Pulse this week. The program looks backward at the end of the popular Univision program Sabado Gigante and how it survived despite criticisms of its content. The program provided a cultural link on Saturday evenings to many audiences throughout Latin America. Latin Pulse also reviews the upcoming presidential elections in Argentina and how the final stage of the presidency of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner casts a shadow on the process. The news segment of the program reviews the trip to Cuba by Pope Francis and its implications for politics and diplomacy.
The program includes in-depth interviews with:
Constanza Mujica of Universidad Catolica; and
Amy Williams of LatinAmericaGoesGlobal.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; and
Associate Producer: Natalie Ottinger.
