    Excellent interviews. I really like the sort of “boots on the ground” analysis. Please keep up the GREAT work. I live near the border and I have never had better insight into Mexico.

    Greeting guys,

    My name is Jose Pacheco and i’m currently living two hours south of Victoria, Tamaulipas and been around Mexico for about 8 years. I congratulate you for your excellent show. Its been helping me understand how the country works.

    I would like to have more insights how of how the National Coordination Workers of Education (CNTE) works. I pretty confuse on their political and educational philosophy.

    Best regards,

    Jose A. Pacheco

      Thanks for your kind comments Jose, we will try to work in more information on the CNTE, which is a dark and untransparent organization that has been used as a vehicle for many movements in southern mexico, some of which are linked to both Marxist groups and the guerilla movement that never really went away.

      Sorry for the delay in replying, the mexicoexplained has been on holiday!!

      Best regards,

    John, I’ve recently found and really enjoyed your podcast. You get Mexico, well done. Would you shoot me a private message? I’m doing my own podcast, El Petroleo es Nuestro: A History of Oil in Mexico and I’d like to plug you on it. And of course I’d appreciate your thoughts, I think we come at a lot of these issues from similar points.

    Big fan of the podcast as an American living in DF.

    Bit of feedback about yesterday’s podcast (3/10/2016) – you asked the question about whether the city was being lost and cited places like Roma and Condesa (where I live) but you did a very bad job of explaining the context as to what even made you raise the question. Is there empirical evidence of more crime? Even a mention of anecdotal evidence was lacking.

    I’d ask you to be more thorough with providing context on the things you discuss as we are not all avid Mexico or DF news watchers and possibly all we know is what you explain to us!

    Best,
    Mike

      Hi Mike,

      Sorry your comment got lost for nearly six months. Thanks for your comment which I thought was quite fair. At the time we were talking about the takedown of a building dedicated to crime next the Califa on Alfonso Reyes where a gang had been operating with impunity and terrorizing the neighbors, I am told they were eating tacos and not paying for them.
      I am also getting reports of crime and kidnapping to a degree I have not had since 1995 following the peso crisis. There is also the perception of security index from Inegi that has shown a perceived increase in insecurity.

      thanks for your support.

    Would prefer to e-mail you, but since I can’t: I am a devoted listener, ever-waiting for the next edition. When I listen to the podcast on my phone, without earbuds, all seems fine. But when I use earbuds I hear John only in my left ear, and other guests in my right ear, which makes rather difficult listening if there’s exterior sound, especially since the sound quality varies from host to guest to guest. If this could be repaired I’d be even happier with Mexico Explained.
