The Real Stories Behind the Trapped Chilean Miners
The Real Stories Behind the Trapped Chilean Miners

Listen
AIR DATE: December 24, 2010

For months the world followed the story of the Chilean miners trapped underground. The 33 men finally emerged to cheers and media coverage. Film companies and publishers are clamoring for their stories... but a UN-Reno professor says the real stories are those of the women who waited for them above. Emma Sepulveda Pulvirenti flew to Chile and interviewed wives, mothers and lovers as they awaited the miners' rescue. They told her they'd known for a long time about the mine's dangers. They showed her love letters. Then one day, Emma made a terrible discovery of one miner's secret. Join us for a first-person recount of the Chilean miners rescue, the women who waited for them, and the one secret the TV cameras didn't show.

GUEST
Emma Sepulveda Pulvirenti, writer and Dir, Latino Research Ctr, UNR
