Favelas – Radio Feature


Daniel Sansom

Brazil is known for its samba music, famous beaches and gifted soccer team, but there is a side to the country that arguably damages its glowing reputation. Brazil’s favelas are feared by many, but what reasons do people have for being afraid of them? Are these communities as bad as they’re made out to be?

Listen to this radio feature focusing on the favelas in Brazil and why there is a stigma attached to them.

With special thanks to Luis Peaze, Beth McLoughlin and Nino Mason.
