On Friday morning, our friends at NPR’s Latino USA produced a special podcast-only episode about Puerto Rico and how it is coping with Hurricane Maria. Julio Ricardo Varela, co-host of In The Thick but also the founder of this site, is a native of Puerto Rico and he shares some updates from his reporting in this show with host Maria Hinojosa. In addition, the show tries to dispel some myths about what’s happening on the island and hears from the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, about her take on the devastation.
