Informative and accessible for an American
I started listening about a year ago and have since gone back to the first episode and am now caught up.
In a climate where the veracity of the news is always in question we still need to be critically thinking consumers. That being said, TBR is level-headed af and offers interesting insights. They also have field experts guest star the show.
Good resource for anybody wanting to keep up with current events in Brazil.
Best English-language coverage of Brazilian politics and culture that I have encountered to date — really excellently done, a valuable resource.
Delightful podcast that sheds light on the Brazilian situation without coming across as partisan. Beautifully written and cut together with good music. Keep up the good work!
