In this podcast, Dick Gordon talks to Christian Surena, a member of the Diaspora who went back to Haiti to help his parents and the people in their neighborhood. Then he talks to Laura Wagner, an American graduate student who was caught under rubble at the home where she lived. (I posted a link to Laura's article from Salon.com, one of the most moving things I have read about the earthquake, here.) She talks a lot about the false ideas of Haitians and how violent, dangerous, and scary they are. She is completely right; Haitians are kind, hospitable, and wonderful people.
This episode also includes an old story from Haiti from 2007.
