The Week That Was at Global Voices Podcast: Brexit, Brexit Everywhere

This week we take you to Brazil, Russia and Tanzania. We also speak with Global Voices Caribbean editor Janine Mendes-Franco about the reaction to Brexit in her region and with Global Voices contributor Arzu Geybulla about the inequality and social injustice that lies behind the glitz and glamour in Azerbaijan.
