Reporter and and Alignist curator Beenish Ahmed leads an exploration of Colombia through the lens of the book The Sound of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vásquez. We’ll talk about the rise of drug smuggling, the violence that followed, and how the United States’ approach to border control is still informed by that infamous time.
