The All-Too-Real Housewives of Argentina

Reporter Jasmine Garsd grew up in Argentina watching talk shows which were kind of extreme even for Latin American television.

Jasmine went back to Argentina to find out what had happened. This story is a collaboration with the NPR podcast Rough Translation. (24 minutes)
