In the latest episode of The Rough Guide to Everywhere podcast, we travel to the Rocinha favela in Rio de Janeiro and hear about the surf schools that are empowering a generation.

We chat to Mikey Krzyzanowski, founder of the Goma Collective. Mikey tells us about the documentary he is making on the surf schools, talks vividly about his first impressions of the favela and explains the positive impact these schools are having on the community.

We hope you enjoy this episode – don’t forget to let us know what you think. Rate us on Apple Podcasts and get in touch on Twitter using #roughguidespod!
