While Latino Rebels Radio takes a couple of weeks off for the summer, producer Oscar Fernández steps in the guest host chair with a new episode of his Latino Media Collective show.

Torturer. Fascist. Murderer. Godfather of the death squads. The LMC speaks with professor Jorge Cuellar about the dark shadow that Roberto D’Aubuisson cast over El Salvador. Cuellar is an assistant professor of Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.
