Brazil Podcast 1 – anti-World Cup protest, bananagate, Senna remembered and Rio crisis
This is the first edition of the Brazil Podcast, an effort of independent journalists and producers in Brazil. In this edition, our producer is Sam Cowie, who is based in Rio. Guests are filmmaker Leonardo Macário, also in Rio, and journalist Hugo Bachega, in São Paulo. I am host Maurício Savarese, in São Paulo as well.
Our topics this week are:
– anti-World Cup protest that will take place on Tuesday
– Brazil’s Dani Alves using a banana to fight racism
– Ayrton Senna missed 20 years after his death
– Rio’s security crisis
We hope you enjoy it and forgive any technical issues — we hope they are sorted next week.
