Los Comandos: El Salvador - where gang and police violence rule the country with the highest murder rate in the world. For 16-year-old Mimi and her friends, refuge from the bloodshed can be found in a group of volunteer paramedics called the Comandos de Salvamento.

Ask The Sexpert (Episode #302)

KQED World: Sun, Sep 9, 2018 -- 10:00 PM

Sex is a taboo topic in India, but one man is trying to change that. For several decades, 93-year-old Dr. Mahinder Watsa has promoted the importance of sexual pleasure, consent and information as a passage to gender equality and health. Embodying non-moralistic advice and humor via a column for a daily newspaper, many have written in for guidance. But Dr. Watsa's openness and popularity have not come without consequence, as a conservative backlash seeks to takedown his column and ban comprehensive sex education in schools.
