On Tuesday, July 1, I was a guest on the Boland show on Radio Europe Mediterraneo, the largest English language radio station in Spain. The producer of the show contacted me after researching child labor in India and coming across my website and book. The twenty-minute interview was a discussion about the various sides of child labor in India and the conflicting issues surrounding how to get children out of the workforce.
