With the return of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva as Brazil’s president and the hope of Brazilian democracy being renewed, Latino Rebels Radio host Julio Ricardo Varela begins the new year by speaking with Brazil-based freelance journalist Michael Fox on what lies ahead for Lula’s second run in office following the right-wing presidency of Jair Bolsonaro.

Michael Fox is also the host of the podcast Brazil On Fire.
