Oligarchy and US-Sponsored War in El Salvador

Audio of my conversation with journalist Daniel Alvarenga
1

Earlier this week, President Biden closed the border to asylum seekers, many of whom are Salvadoran. To learn about their history and how it “ties into a bigger picture of U.S. imperialism in the hemisphere,” I spoke with Daniel Alvarenga, a Salvadoran journalist and the host of HUMO: Murder and Silence in El Salvador. As Daniel reveals, the U.S. doesn’t have the best track record of dealing with the problems it helped create in Central America.

Interviews with top historians about their latest work. Mainly educational, often funny. Conveniently, most of the jokes are about people too far underground to punch back.
