In our weekly show, What’s Happening in Brazil, we bring you the latest news and cultural reports from South America’s biggest country. In our newest episode find out how the covid-19 outbreak is affecting the way school children learn, and how innovation is helping keep their minds busy during this difficult time.

School administrators are thinking outside the box to be able to maintain a connection to students with no computer and internet access, while exposing old issues such as inequality and racism in the modern, technological age.

Also delve into how different states are coping with the pandemic. While some seem to be getting things under control, others are in, or close to complete collapse, with over stretched healthcare systems and a total lack of public services. See what is being done and how the situation is evolving.

Finally, as is our tradition on the show, to wrap things up on a positive note, check out our Brazilianism segment and explore the sounds and delicacies of this beautiful and diverse nation.

All What's Happening in Brazil  episodes are available at Brasil de Fato’s YouTube channel, where you'll also find a special English-content playlist.
