In this episode, we give an overview of the revolutionary years and chronicle the major events of the Cuban Revolution that took place during the period between the coup by Batista in March 1952 through the fall of the Batista government,  marked by his fleeing of the country on New Year's day 1959.   The aftermath and repercussions of Batista's coup would give  rise and voice to the  young Fidel Castro as a revolutionary force in Cuba. It is an extraordinary tale that we tell of Castros early attempts to overthrow the Batista government including the failed Moncada Barracks attack, his  trial and imprisonment, his subsequent exile in Mexico and his return to Cuba  when he  finally overtakes the Batista government in a guerilla campaign that eventually would win the day.  Join us over the next several episodes for more detail on the  Cuban Revolution  and how this  small band of radicals would overtake the Batista government .   It is here on this island nation where  the story eventually  converges around the modern Cubans, CIA men and the mafia.  All in one place.  Join us in this continuing miniseries on Cuban history  as we continue to set the stage and  explore  the forces that were shaping the world in that era of the twentieth century.

Along with Fidel Castro, Lula da Silva founded the São Paulo Forum in 1990. Schotgues says this brought together moderate leftists and many of the most radical and dangerous communist groups in South America under one banner.

On June 22 1983, 15 year old Emanuela Orlandi was abducted on her way home from a music lesson in the center of Rome, Italy. Emanuela lived with her parents, three sisters and brother in an apartment in Vatican City, where her father worked in an administrative position for the Pope. One of the few secular families to live on the Vatican grounds, her disappearance sparked international interest, leading her grieving family down a confusing torturous road to find the truth.

In 1990, soon after his release from prison, Nelson Mandela traveled to New York, and was interviewed by Ted Koppel in front of over 1,000 people at City College. To start the event off, a man in the audience all but demanded that Mandela denounce Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, and Muammar Gaddafi. On today's full episode of The Breakdown I'll play Mandela's brilliant and timeless answer, where, in short, he tells the man, “You make a big mistake to think that your enemies are my enemies.” Kyrie Irving is not our enemy. I know this man personally. He is a kind, compassionate, giving, inquisitive soul. He is a dedicated father and son. And I have seen him, time and time again, actually BE THERE for Black people at our time of need. Not just with words, but with resources. Does that mean I support everything he says or does? Or vice versa? Of course not. I can't name a single soul on Earth in which that is true for me. I don't even agree with everything my own wife or mother say or do. And that can never be the standard. I'm not here to pit Kyrie and Kanye against each other, but they aren't the same person and aren't guilty of the same things. Kyrie has owned his words and actions. And apologized for the ways they caused offense. Now, I will literally defend the right of Jewish people for that to not be enough for them. That's their business. But we simply cannot allow other people to define for us who we cancel and who we don't. That ends with us having no leaders and heroes.

El escritor uruguayo Carlos Liscano publicó en julio pasado el libro “Cuba, de eso mejor no hablar”. En ese trabajo, Liscano expone su desencanto con la Revolución Cubana, a la que le declaró su amor de joven, según admite. A lo largo del texto, fruto de una larga investigación y apoyado en documentos y archivo, cuestiona de manera frontal a los gobiernos cubanos de Fidel Castro en adelante, por el autoritarismo, la falta de libertades y las violaciones a los derechos humanos, pero además por lo que define como el fracaso en términos generales de todo el proyecto liderado por los hermanos Castro y el Partido Comunista. Por otro lado, en su libro Liscano acusa a la mayoría de la izquierda y la intelectualidad latinoamericana por “aceptar acríticamente” lo que sucede en la isla. Así lo comentaba ayer, cuando estuvo en la entrevista central de En Perspectiva. ”Yo estoy muy dolido con esto, por mi actividad. A medida que pasan los años en que la sociedad me considera una especie de intelectual, mis pares siguen sin reaccionar. Nadie dice nada. Los dirigentes del Frente Amplio siempre están esquivando pronunciarse sobre si Cuba es una dictadura o una democracia”. El libro lleva ya tres ediciones y es el más vendido de la editorial Fin de Siglo este año, pero al mismo tiempo resulta que no tuvo casi repercusión a nivel político.

Now 60 years old, the trade embargo on Cuba has been perpetuated primarily at the behest of Washington. When it was imposed in 1962, John F. Kennedy was US president and Fidel Castro was the revolutionary leader of Cuba: a Communist too close for comfort for Washington at the height of the Cold War. Arms sales to Havana had been banned four years earlier and Cuba leant on its major ally, the Soviet Union, to fill the gap. Our panel discusses why the embargo remains in place today and if there is any hope of lifting it.

Director Henry Godinez talks about his powerful Chicago Shakespeare Theater production of Measure For Measure, how he loves Shakespeare's famously problem play, and how his background informed his approach to it. Set amidst the glamour, music, and sensuality of 1950s Cuba, where Shakespeare's Vienna becomes Havana just before Fidel Castro seizes power, Henry also discusses how this setting enriched his understanding of the play; how differing strands of self-righteous fanaticism and hypocrisy come into conflict; his own crazy childhood dreams; how this production manages to (amazingly!) end on a mildly positive and hopeful note; and how Shakespeare's problem play is better the more nuanced and complicated it is.

Rita had five Irish aunts. Her father's sisters, like her father, Thomas Honan Jr., grew up under the watchful eye of the OG Irishman who'd stayed in Cuba after fighting alongside Teddy Roosevelt as a member of his vaunted Rough Riders. Four out of five of the Irish aunts made it out of Cuba. Until this episode, I knew three of them only by their nicknames - Cambucha, Lola and Pilín. Alicia - one of whose daughters became a nun, writer and Zen practitioner - was the only one that I knew of with a so-called normal name. Pilín called herself “mi abuela postiza” (my fake grandmother). Pilín was my favorite if for no other reason than she bought me my first baseball bat. Lola married an alcoholic whose claim to fame or infamy - outside of prodigious drinking - was playing high school baseball and basketball alongside Fidel Castro. Lola outlived her husband and all of her sisters. Emma was a dreamer-novelist who kept a rooster in her house published fantastical stories of love and loss. She stayed- and died in Cuba. And for reasons that we hope you discover during this episode, all of them have lived on in Rita's and my memory for both good and weird reasons.

In May 1996, Lollie Winans and Julie Williams were murdered at their campsite in the popular Shenandoah National Park in the middle of rural Virginia, not far from a busy tourist resort called Skyland. Many people, including park and resort staff, had seen the happy, friendly couple in the area and were alarmed when they were reported missing. As experienced outdoorswomen, Lollie and Julie knew how to take care of themselves and each other. When their bodies were discovered, despite evidence that the women had been brutally tortured and killed, law enforcement decided not alert the public that a murderer could be in the park, and in fact diverted attention away from the crime. This and other shocking facts about the case are revealed in Kathryn Miles new book “Trailed: One woman's quest to solve the Shenandoah murders”.

His defection needed the assistance of Mexican gangsters, an Irish promoter with an eye for a winning fighter and a fishing boat.

In 1961, Fidel Castro launched a nationwide campaign aimed to eradicate illiteracy in Cuba. An ‘army' of volunteers known as brigadistas equipped with books and pencils travelled across the country to teach people how to read and write. Alex Collins spoke to Rosa Hernandez Acosta who taught many adults even though she was a 10-year-old schoolgirl herself. (Photo: Rosa Hernandez Acosta. Credit: Kian Seara)

Episode 125 is the third  in a multiple episode wander on the history of Cuba dating all the way back to the island conquest by Spain.  We take you swiftly through    hundreds of years of colonial rule that shaped the geopolitics of the region and defined its 20th century relationship with the United States. In today's episode we cover the period from the beginnin of the Cuban revolution of 1895 up through the coup by Bautista in the 1930's and we also roll the tape back a bit to add to the rich history of American political desires to annex the island which go all the way back to Thomas Jefferson's time.   It is here on this island nation where  the story eventually  converges around the modern Cubans, CIA men and the mafia.  All in one place.  Join us in this continuing miniseries on Cuban history  as we continue to set the stage before we  explore  the forces that were shaping the world in that era of the twentieth century. It's history that   immerses us in the  Cuban story whose politics, geography, and economic circumstances would all collide and create an epicenter of geopolitical consequences. Consequences that would intersect  in a crescendo right at the moment that JFK was coming to the Presidency. Understanding the leadup and history of Cuba is critical to this part of the journey that is JFK the Enduring Secret.   Let us know  what you like about the podcast or just provide us with comments on the episode via  email at podcastjfk@gmail.com or get active in our blog for each episode at www.podcastjfk.com   Either way, keep listening, and join us for the whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story. Now we enter the unknown with evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We  review  key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the  possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching.  Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This  real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as  we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History. An event that changed the nation and changed the world forever.
