This supplemental episode is the recording of a Twitter Space we just recorded with our friends, Professors Alexander Aviña and Brandon Wolfe-Hunnicutt. What was originally supposed to be a pretty informal meeting became a nearly 1 hour and 40 minute discussion of coups, oil, and oil nationalization! Enjoy!
Alexander Aviña is historian at Arizona State University, and is author of the book Specters of Revolution: Peasant Guerrilla in the Cold War Mexican Countryside (Oxford University Press, 2014, https://alexanderavina.com/specters-of-revolution/ ).
