(3-1-2017) Has any city had as much influence on Miami as the one to the south, separated by ocean and politics?

That city of course, is Havana. With five centuries of history, it struggled with piracy and slavery, was in constant revolution against Spain, and a tenuous relationship with the Americans.

We speak with author Mark Kurlansky, whose latest work is HAVANA:  A Subtropical Delirium.
