Comenzamos este episodio en el Este de Manhattan, con la presentación del libro “Guadalupe in New York” de la autora Alyshia Gálvez, que revela la importancia del culto a la imagen de la Virgen de Guadalupe del Tepeyac en la lucha por los derechos de los migrantes indocumentados.

A continuación ponemos rumbo al norte de la isla, donde visitamos a la investigadora chilena Soledad Miranda-Rottmann en los laboratorios de la Universidad Rockefeller.

Later on, we'll head to the north of the island, where we'll pay a visit to Chilean researcher, Soledad Miranda-Rottmann, in the Rockefeller University laboratories. Soledad will tell us about her research on animal hearing, and its uses to solve hearing problems in humans.
