Today we’re trying something different: Instead of a written article or interview, we’d like to introduce a new section of our blog, which we would like to call “PLD Shop Talk.”

And, on this first podcast episode, PLD Leadership Council Member Érika Lessa interviewed Felipe Simões, an interpreter from São Paulo who recently interpreted at the MTV Video Music Awards.

We hope you enjoy this interview and feel free to send us your comments and suggestions.
