Aftermath Series on Puerto Rico after Maria Launches

My podcast is Change Over Time, a story-based podcast where I think historically about things I geek. This year I'm launching Aftermath, a multi-part look at Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria through the lens of my family. In these first two episodes I highlight a conversation with my mother, Doña Edna Garcia. My mother discusses the aftermath of the storm but most of the conversation is about the political situation on the island, the rise of a sense of nacionalismo, the relationship of the US and Puerto Rico, plebiscites, and a bit of history on the Puerto Rican flag.

Change Over Time

As the library asks, "What do you geek?" I geek science fiction, fantasy, the outdoors, critical race theory, politics, organizing, among other things. Mostly, I geek history. So I've tied all that together into one podcast.
