10 Stars...Brilliant Podcast!!!!!!

I visited Rio de Janeiro last year and fell in love with it. As a result, I decided to learn Portuguese. I have been studying for 6 months and discovered Carioca Connection podcast via a Google search. I absolutely LOVE IT!!! It's a pleasure to listen to Foster and Alexia. They are informative, entertaining and funny. They are playful with each other (love hearing both of them laugh. It is infectious) and obviously enjoying doing this. I have learned a lot about Brazilian culture, politics, travel and a wide variety of topics. But most importantly, the podcast has bumped up my vocabulary and comprehension significantly. I am delighted to have discovered Carioca Connection and am grateful to Alexia and Foster. All the best to both of you. Muito obrigado!

Thanks for the greet show
