Can Venezuela's 'Chavismo' Survive without Chavez?

Hosted by

Three weeks of violence may or may not come to an end as Venezuela's embattled President, Nicolás Maduro, calls for a "peace conference." We hear about a troubled economy, the political legacy of the late Hugo Chávez, and America's interests in a country with the world's largest oil reserves. Also, a Uganda newspaper "outs" 200 homosexuals after the country's President signs anti-gay legislation, and more than 700,000 bitcoins worth $350 million have been stolen. What will that mean for the online currency designed to avoid banks and regulations?
