Fumaça is an investigative journalism podcast that focuses on inequalities and injustices. Fumaça’s mission is to ask why certain things have happened instead of what and to explain the complexities of the world around us to our audience. Fumaça believes journalists should have time to think, question, investigate, fact-check, and hold those in power accountable.
Therefore, Fumaça believes that a piece of journalism should only be published when it’s truly finished, not when the deadline hits. Since the beginning of Fumaça in 2016, Fumaça has received multiple awards for their work, including a Gazeta Award, the most prestigious in Portugal. Fumaça is on the path to becoming the first audience-funded journalism project in Portugal.
