How does it feel to see the country you love devastated by a socialist regime? And what does it take to take the painful decision to leave friends and family behind to make your fortune elsewhere? In this unusual episode, I put the world to rights with Venezuelan musician Baldo Verdú who left Caracas for London in 2013 to escape the violence, the poverty and the criminality fueled by Chavez’s and Maduro’s government.   If you want to find out more about the situation in Venezuela, check out https://www.caracaschronicles.com/   The books: The Latin Americans: Their Love-hate Relationship with the United States by Carlos J. Rangel and Chinese Stories by Andres Oppenheimer    Follow Baldo on Instagram @BaldoVerdu and if you’re interested in finding out more about his music search for Baldo Verdú on all music platforms.
