Over the summer Curt worked as the associate producer for the Latin Pulse podcast. As associate producer he had the opportunity to engage global audiences with the latest political and cultural trends in Latin America. In addition to writing and recording weekly news updates, he delved into some of the region's most controversial issues by speaking with experts and analyzing media trends in the Americas. For example, he interviewed a series of human rights activists regarding 25,000 people disappearing in Mexico as a result of the drug war and broke the story two weeks before major news outlets reported the statistics. From this experience, he has sharpened his broadcast skills and expanded his knowledge on one of the most vibrant regions in the world. He is confident this experience will directly benefit his career.
