This episode of Polivision is about “El Pulso de La República”, a Mexican online satiric news show created in 2012 by comedian Chumel Torres, who, after four years of producing his show independently in YouTube transitioned as the host of a late-night show in HBO (“Chumel con Chumel Torres) with a regional projection. Inspired by Seth Macfarlane and John Oliver, Torres’ work is also a symptomatic example of today’s DIY online comedy.

Created by Paul Alonso, Polivision is a bilingual and multimedia outlet based in Atlanta, Georgia, that covers Latin(o) American and Global Cultures.
