Season 1, Episode 6,  Jul 09, 2019, 10:19 AM

There is a crisis in Venezuela. The country teeters on the brink of total economic and social collapse. There is civil unrest, hospitals and supermarkets are empty, and there is a very real possibility of an invasion led by the United States of America. The Bolivarian revolution, which is the political process initiated by the late president Hugo Chavez, has not borne its promised fruits.  

What happened in Venezuela, and what is in store for the country and its people? What lessons are there for the left?
