This week, Latin Pulse comes one day early to provide a special centered around the myths of the Mayan calendar. Although some wrongly attribute beliefs about a doomsday on Dec. 21, 2012 to the Mayan calendar, this program traces the origins of such misinformation and discusses Mayan astronomy, astrology, and religion. The news segment of the program covers the creation of a new federal police force in Mexico and how that might affect the Drug War and human rights concerns in that country.
