We are re-airing this interview which originally aired on June 30, 2014. 

Francisco Goldman discusses the life and culture of one of the world’s most remarkable and often misunderstood cities—Mexico City. Mexico’s narco war continues to rage on, and in the summer of 2013, Mexican organized crime violence erupted in the city. His book The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle is an account of his personal and political awakening in Mexico City and a look at the challenges the city faces.
