What's happening in Brazil?

Thousands of demonstrators in support of former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro stormed and ransacked the country's Congress, Supreme Court, and presidential palace last weekend.

On the Sky News Daily podcast, host Niall Paterson talks to our digital investigation journalist Victoria Elms about the events leading up to the protest. He also explores the aftermath of the riots with Sky News's chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay, who is in the capital, Brasilia.

Plus, the author of Beef, Bullets and Bible: Brazil in The Age of Bolsonaro, Richard Lapper, talks about the role played by the former leader in inciting the events - and the parallels between what happened in Brazil and the January 6 2021 riots in the US.
