Cartoonist Marquil charts Washington’s race to the bottom.
After Haiti’s earthquake in 2010 images of death and destruction flooded into the media, but photographer Paolo Woods focused on a subject close to our heart — radios.
Since 49% of the adult population of Haiti is literate, most people rely on local radio stations to get their local news, listen to kompa (traditional Haitian music) and figure out what’s going on in their community.
It takes about $2,000 to start up a basic station, but that won’t get you broadcast as far as NPR; it’ll just reach your town.
