This American Life

What Happened at Dos Erres?

This American Life has an amazing story called “What Happened at Dos Erres?

A massacre in Guatemala in an Indian village in 1982. A phone call 30 years later tells a man living in the U.S. he’s one of two young boys that were kidnapped back then. To get the rest, click on that link.

It’s stories like this that made me want to become a journalist in the first place. Listening to it makes me ache to get back into radio which, when done like this, shows what radio can do. It made my hair stand on end.
