As Senhoras Que Bebem Cerveja

Ladies Who Drink Beer

October 7, 2019

In this episode, we deconstruct one of our latest “Shorties”. We go through some useful food vocabulary, discuss verb and tense choices, and Rui irons out Joel and Molly’s “estrangeiro” pronunciation! There’s also some exciting news about Practice Portuguese, especially for those of you who might be in the Algarve next weekend.

Episódio 1 (2018, ANIMATED) – Fotografar Comida em Restaurantes / O Sono e o Álcool

Episode 1 (2018, ANIMATED) - Photographing food in restaurants / Sleep and Alcohol

August 3, 2018

Talk about a callback… This video is a brand new animated version of our very first podcast episode, from way back in 2013!

By comparing the audio of this episode to our newer ones, you’ll hopefully notice not only a massive evolution in not only our production quality and comfort on the mic, but also in Joel’s Portuguese. He had been learning Portuguese for about a year when this was recorded.

It’s very humbling (especially for Joel) to go this far back into the archives, but Wayne’s fantastic animating talent has made it a lot of fun. Enjoy!

May 7, 2018

Um Café em Lisboa

A Coffee in Lisbon

May 8, 2017

This episode is a collaboration featuring Tatiana Ribeiro, a Portuguese teacher (and fan of the project) from Brazil, currently living Italy! She recorded with us and also wrote the dialogue, which takes place in a café in Portugal.

Since we all know jokes are funnier after they’re explained in exhaustive detail, Rui and Joel discuss the key vocabulary and expressions used throughout. But rather than making it easy on you by switching to English, we decided to keep the entire conversation in Portuguese!

But don’t worry – For the first time ever, members using the podcast player on our website can now enable English translations at any point in this episode, to make sure you don’t miss a single “palavra”.

We’re excited to hear what you think!

Update, August 11, 2017: Shortly after launching this episode, we were invited on Tatiana’s radio show for an interview. We’ve released an edited version of this interview with transcript if you’d like to have a listen!
