Latin Pulse Podcast looks at the Maduro government. Representing a critical view, our own Hugo Pérez Hernaíz talks about conspiracy theories and militarized policing strategies.

George Ciccariello-Maher of Drexel University provides a more sympathetic view, discussing some of the internal tensions in the Maduro coalition.

This is the third in a series of podcasts on Venezuela in the past month. You can download them or stream them here.
