On Wednesday, President Barack Obama announced plans to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba for the first time in over 50 years. The surprising statement outlined plans to easy economic and travel embargoes between the two countries, as well as establish an American embassy in Cuba. On Today’s Radioactivity, Host Rob Lorei gets local perspectives from Al Fox, Founder of Alliance for a Responsible Cuba Policy, and Patrick Manteiga, Editor and Publisher of La Gaceta newspaper. We also listen to some viewpoints deriding the president’s decision from a Fox News segment with Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
