elderlobinho ,

Excellent companion to Americas Quarterly

I've admired Brian Winter's written work for quite some time--especially given the current crisis in Brazil, it is the perfect time to complement that with a more longform podcast. I also appreciate that the episodes are not too long (typically around half an hour at the longest), which makes listening to them more manageable in my schedule.
