The protests in Puerto Rico are about so much more than nasty messages endorsed by the governor. The island’s political grievances were decades in the making—and even if protesters get the governor to resign, there are more complicated power struggles ahead.
Guest: Natalia Rodríguez Medina, who has been covering Puerto Rico’s protests for Latino Rebels.
Podcast production by Mary Wilson, Jayson De Leon, and Ethan Brooks.
