Before 9/11 happened President George W. Bush vowed to give more attention to Latin America. After 9/11, Latin America went to the back burner. Around that time, Gerry Hadden moved to Mexico City in 2000 to take a job as NPR’s correspondent for Mexico, Latin America and Haiti. He has a new book out called “Never The Hope Itself: Love and Ghosts in Latin America and Haiti“. Anchor Marco Werman speaks with him about trying to report in what had become a forgotten part of the world.
Gerry Hadden is The World’s correspondent based in Spain
