Podcast of Interest to Latin American Historians to --- Nov. 15

 

H-Latamistas,

To begin this summary of podcasts, I want to thank Andrew Kettler of H-Atlantic who began providing such a summary to subscribers there.  I was so impressed with his work that I felt that imitation would be the highest form of flattery.  Andrew provides insightful comments and a pithy introduction to his regular postings.  Something which, unfortunately, I have not emulated.  Quite simply, congratulations to Andrew.  I read his posts eagerly and borrow many of his relevant content.
