My latest for Latin Pulse in this week’s newscast is my report from the release of a new book by Guillermo Valdes Castallanos, the former director of the Mexican intelligence agency (CISEN).

Organizing the event was Manuel Suarez-Mier, a former Mexican diplomat and my professor for “World Politics” at American University. Mexican Ambassador to the United States Eduardo Medina Mora was also there.

Each week on Latin Pulse, the able Megan Ekhaml hosts a roundup of that week’s news in Latin America.

This week, I stepped in and earned the role of associate producer by guest hosting the newscast. This week, we focused on Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay. Thanks to executive producer Rick Rockwell for writing the script and editing the final package.
