Permit us one moment to applaud the work of our fellow Futuro Media colleagues at Latino USA. On Tuesday, the LUSA team released one excellent explainer about what is going on in Nicaragua right now and how we got there. In “Nicaragua in Crisis,” producer Sayre Quevedo and host Maria Hinojosa explore the root causes behind the protests against president Daniel Ortega and what is happening in the country. It is a piece with the right balance of historical context and current news headlines. We here at Latino Rebels have been covering the Nicaragua story for a few months now, and the reporting from our LUSA colleagues this week is greatly appreciated and super important. Give it a listen below.
