The Week That Was at Global Voices Podcast: We, the People

The Week That Was at Global Voices podcast takes a look at some of the stories that have recently come out of the Global Voices newsroom. This week, we speak to our contributors Elizabeth Rivera, Giovanna Salazar and Juan Tadeo about popular discontent with politics in Mexico.

We also take you to Colombia, India, Syria and the United States, where we meet adults and children alike who are driven to make a difference.
