Episode Info: At the last SMACC event in Sydney the Brazilians turned up in force. It was impressive. They came to learn but quickly it became apparent that we should be learning from them too. I won’t pretend to be a SoMe expert but I have never come across such sophisticated use of Instagram as a #FOAMed tool. Instagram is pretty huge and it may well be the number one SoMe platform for the generation that is entering medicine now. So if you are interested in things like teaching young nurses, doctors, paramedics then you might learn something really useful from an unusual source. Instagram is not a fringe #FOAMed platform when Nursing Educators have nearly 200000 followers on Instagram. First let’s quickly talk about the weird thing that just happened to you if you listened to the podcast first. Yes the podcast is 80% Português. It starts with that annoying Irish guy and then the Português starts at 6:20 when Henrique Herpich takes over. The English starts again at 24:20, cue laughs and we are done. We immediately went out for drinks and there is a reason that the Irish and the Brazilians get on very well. (My brother in law is Brazilian. He is extremely cool. Olá Gustavo!) But why? Why would I try to alienate the listeners to this podcast by hitting them with a podcast in another language? The Lusophone Commonwealth is why. Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Portugal, Guinea-Bissau, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Macau, Cape Verde and São Tomé and Príncipe. 207 million Portuguese speakers in Brazil alone. Most Portuguese speakers are in countries where medicine is either developing very fast or in need of developing very fast! So they could do with some Português FOAMed. So we need FOAM other than English; #FOAMOTE The hope is that everyone involved with #FOAM and #FOAMed will look to their language-other-than-English colleagues and see opportunities and not barriers. These people want to work together and the fact that YOU don’t speak their language does NOT mean that you cannot work together. (That and the fact that @Sandnsurf speaks Portugueś and wanted to hear more Portugueś podcasts.) 
This PodcastThese are the #FOAMedBRA people that were in the room: Ian, Henrique, Lucas, Jule, Niciole and Daniel. @breakem Go there and click on “Quem seguimos” (Who we Follow).

This is people like me and people like you saying “HelloMyNameIsXXXX, nice to meet you, how can I help?.....
