Before we started recording this series of interviews, I was given some indications by the directors of the show: "Speak softly, we want intimacy"; "Let the interviewees think, your questions are difficult."

When Pedro Kumamoto got to our set at the IMPA Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, I knew that we would fulfill that mission.

There is something magical about Kuma, you can feel his charisma. As I inadvertently said during the interview, “Kuma has the merit of being authentic".

Pedro is different, and Wikipolítica is also a different sort of movement, made of pixels and paving stones. They both have a long way ahead and they want to go further.

Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America.
