This week marks a year online for Latin Pulse, and so the program is celebrating by featuring a review of some of the biggest stories of the year and includes some important interviewers that listeners may have missed the first time they went online. The topics covered this week include the Drug War, immigration, the pope's trip to Latin America, Cuba's economic reforms and politics in Central America. Unlike the rest of the program, the news segment is new this week, with coverage of the new abortion law in Uruguay.
