Pammmmm ,

Great!

A valuable resource and interesting podcast to learn more about Mexico, the 2018 Mexican presidential election, and the U.S.-Mexico relationship. Well done and worth the listen!

Insightful!

As a person who knows very little about Mexico (but willing to learn more), I find this podcast quite informative. Guests and the host also express their own views on the topic making the conversation more dynamic. And love the opening tune!
