This edition: Puerto Rico's Default

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 2, 2015.

First aired: November 4, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Abi Ishola, we talk about why there’s a growing call for Puerto Rican statehood at a time when the commonwealth is on the verge of defaulting on several billions of dollars in loans. We learn more about a move to get uninsured women screened for breast cancer in an effort to lower the mortality rate among women of color. Then we visit an exhibit of Filipino gold that reveals recently unknown aspects of that people’s culture.
