Two recent podcasts that could be of interest to H-LatAm members. They are both part of the series “Violence Takes Place” hosted by Noria's Mexico & Central American Program. Two of the podcast interviews feature two recent history books: Gema Santamaria’s monograph In the Vortex of Violence and Lina Britto's monograph Marijuana Boom.
