Wind of Change
Bonus #2 Rocking Venezuela

In This Episode

CARACAS, VENEZUELA, 2011: Since the podcast came out, we’ve been inundated with messages from all over the world, positing CIA connections to other bands and cultural products. One of the most fascinating items comes from Tim Gill, a sociologist in North Carolina, who, through the Freedom of Information Act, obtained documents about the U.S. government’s covert support of rock bands in Venezuela. We’ll talk to Gill and explore this verified, and very recent, instance of the U.S. government putting the “Wind of Change” playbook to work in another country, where the U.S. is hoping to topple another regime.
