Hello and welcome to Talking Spirits Podcast #12, the final episode of Season 1.

My guest today is the Portuguese psychotherapist and bassist Nuno Encarnaçāo. I met Nuno about a year ago through the Portuguese singer Diana Silveira and we got along with each other really well and had lots of interesting online conversations. So it was obvious that it would be a great thing to have Nuno as a guest on the show and I am very happy that he immediately agreed to do it.

The conversation you are about to listen to was recorded on 17th of April and we are among many other things discussing Nuno´s love towards the bass and towards music, the Portuguese music scene, how he came to becoming a psychologist, the psychological effects of Covid-19 and the political and societal situation in Portugal nowadays.

We are hoping that you will enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed talking…
