Episode details

In recognition of Ada Ferrer receiving the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in History, we’re re-posting the two episodes in which she’s the featured guest.

Danny and Derek talk about the Nicaraguan elections, MBS and his pro-Republican oil policy, and last weekend's attack on the Iraqi prime minister. They then speak with Ada Ferrer (21:00), professor of history and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU, about the history of Cuba from the precolonial period until the Spanish-American War/War of 1898.
