We discuss his experiences in Brazil, his thoughts on Brazilian customer service, and the current political situation. (Please note that this was recorded a few months ago, so his views on Dilma's impeachment are not based on current information.)

Awesome fun!! Kinsey rocks!

Great Entertainment and a Wonderful Resource for All Things Brazil

Kinsey is an American married to a Brazilian and living in Brazil. Each episode he's joined by a Brazilian co-host to discuss all things Brazilian. The show is informal and humorous, but also highly informative and thought-provoking, even for those who have no particular interest in the country.

If you like Brazilianisms, you may want to check out Israelisms, Josh in Japan, Notes from Spain, and The Polarbear Podcast (Sweden).
