The State We’re In Podcast #8: Do the Right Thing


This week on The State We’re In Podcast: Do The Right Thing!  Investigative journalism in Mexico can be a life-threatening profession. No one knows this better than veteran reporter Sergio Haro and his colleagues at the Tijuana based, muckraking, independent weekly Zeta”. Sergio tells Jonathan why he still reports the truth, despite having lost friends and colleagues to powerful drug cartels and corrupt officials.
And master storyteller Sahand Sahebdivani dazzles us with the parable “The Boy, the Snake and the King”.

Here’s the trailer for the film about Sergio and Zeta:
