In April Planeta.com spotlights a cross-border region dear to this website’s creator, Ron Mader, who reported across the Mexico/USA borderlands during the heady early days of NAFTA (1994-1996). This month we will be watching and joining watch parties for La Frontera – pbs.org/food/shows/la-frontera-with-pati-jinich – the continuing PBS series with Pati Jinich. The food-focused series amplifies local voices and finds new ways of illuminating complicated environmental and social issues.
