Podcast: Socialism in Cuba from a different perspective

In honor of May Day, I've posted to the upper right a podcast from a Scottish lad about socialism in Cuba from a perspective to which Americans are rarely exposed. Though recorded last August shortly after Fidel Castro took ill, it reinforces many of the things I saw and heard while visiting Cuba for 10 days last month. The full podcast discusses both China and Cuba and can be found at this link.  I have edited it to include only the portion on Cuba, to the right, which runs just under nine minutes.  To hear it, just hit the pink (get it?) "play" arrow.
