  In a rebroadcast from Oct. 27, 2013, Ben & Daniel talk with journalist and author, Alfredo Corchado.  Corchado's newest book is "Midnight in Mexico," and he talks about his often difficult journey back home to Mexico in researching the book.  Alfredo talks about his cautious optimism about Mexico, and why Mexico's resilient population hold out hope for the future.

In our Poem of the Week, Daniel reads "Walking Around" by Pablo Neruda.

And in our Poetic License, poet Paisley Rekdal reflects on literary obscurity.
