Because of a glitch in the recording software, the recording was shifted by 1 hour. This recording only contains the last 1/2 hour of the program. The recording of the first hour is contained in the last hour of the 10/26 recording of the program that precedes “Encuentro” (Womenfolk:http://www.kfai.org/node/123). Sorry about that and thank you for your understanding.
