Today the world is very strange and unpredictable. The traditional medias controlled by higher interests made space for a new force: podcasts. Podcasts are different, because it is more personal, a bigger interaction. The hosts let you give your opinions, so the control is not by a business man – but by a student, a teacher, a worker, who can seek information. I chose to talk about politics, with teachers, with members of the Portuguese Government, with Deputies of the Nation. With that I want to bring those who have power near to the voters, because I think that the distance between is huge. My podcast can provide a voice.
