Earlier this month, our story-telling project, Sonic Trace brought you the voice of Luis, a young Mexican-born Angeleno who was trying to figure out why the Mexican Presidential election should matter to him. In the weeks leading up to the July 1st election, Luis called politicians and spoke with experts and pundits in Mexico and the US. This story aired on KCRW's To The Point, and PRI's The World.
Now, Sonic Trace brings you a more intimate look into his journey with outtakes that didn't make it into the broadcast story.
Listen, comment and share to the broadcast versions:
