Listen to ¿Pero Por Qué? podcast for in-depth Latin American news, politics and history in English.
In Episode 8, we discuss the latest COVID-19 news out of Puerto Rico and the ongoing political protests. We also dig into the fallout from the 2016 Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA), which established an external financial oversight board to manage the government debt crisis but has led to even more political and economic turmoil on the island.
