On our September 11 program, we examined the 1973 coup in Chile that overthrew a democratically elected socialist government. Old Mole Luisa Martinez was in Chile for the 50-year commemoration. She talks with Norm Diamond about what it was like to participate in the events there.

Pablo Larraín’s new film, El Conde, released to coincide with that commemoration, reimagines Augusto Pinochet, leader of the coup, as a vampire, still hovering over Chile. Norm discusses the film and the persistence of Pinochet’s terrible legacy.
