Viva México podcast episode 6: The Writings on the Wall

July 9, 2017

In episode six of the Viva México podcast, Booker Prize-winning novelist DBC Pierre tells us how growing up in Mexico influenced his writing and gave him “an extraordinary capability for bullshit”. We also speak to the historian Andrew Paxman about his new biography of William Jenkins, an American magnate who became the richest man in Mexico and “the gringo that Mexicans most loved to hate,” long before Donald Trump. Plus, all the latest on Trump’s meeting with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto at the G20, and the upcoming NAFTA renegotiations.

Paxman’s book “Jenkins of Mexico” is available on Amazon here. We highly recommend it.
