Cuba was at one time the largest export market for U.S.-grown rice, but the Kennedy Administration’s embargo of The Island brought an end to that. And 60 years later, we’re still feeling the effects: a food crisis in Cuba and a reliable, close export market gone. This episode looks at the current situation with U.S.-Cuban trade. Special guests Paul Johnson, chair of the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba and Rodney Gonzalez, Counselor Embassy of Cuba join Asiha Grigsby and Lesley Dixon.
