This Week’s Show: Control

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:
This week, Latino USA examines the notion of control, who has it, and how we lose it. First, we hear from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. Then, Pilar Marrero of La Opinión joins us to analyze the GOP’s immigration platform. We revisit the history of the IUD and ask teens about how they use condoms. We learn about Crisis Pregnancy Centers. We hear from D.C.’s Health and Human Services director, and discuss whether it’s even useful to call out racists on Twitter. And Maria Hinojosa reveals her own story of loss, decision, and empowerment.

ABOUT CAPTIONING:
Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”
The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
