In the last few weeks, Honduras has hit the international press, and not for good reasons. Host Karen Spring discusses violence, trauma, and Honduran culture and challenges with Faridd Sierra, a Honduran that grew up in the U.S. but has since moved back to live in Honduras. Since returning, Faridd has been closely following the human rights, political, and social situation in Honduras and tweets regularly at @AllThingsHonduras
