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.

Excellently Done

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!
