Published by dwalcher on

Join Steven and Dustin as they go on a deep dive into contemporary Venezuela with Dr. Alejandro Velasco.  Alejandro talks about the country’s political crisis, including the increasingly fractured state of the opposition.  They also discuss U.S. and international efforts to isolate the Maduro government, the ways that COVID has affected Venezuela, and the state of the country’s oil industry.  Be sure to stick around for the episode’s postscript covering the recent United Nations report on political repression and state-directed violence in Venezuela.
