O português brasileiro

I'm fluent in Spanish and I decided that an interesting summer project might be to see how far I can get with Brazilian Portuguese, given how similar they are. The grammar doesn't seem like it will be much of a problem, but the main trouble I'm having is pronunciation. I got the "Portuguese for Dummies" book (sort of an impulse buy, and not a well-researched choice), and the pronunciation guide in it is a little inconsistent. Does anyone have any web resources they'd recommend for Portuguese pronunciation? I'm pretty good with simply picking up pronunciation by hearing it, so something like a YouTube video in Portuguese with subtitles also in Portuguese so I could read along would be great. Particular podcasts of note are also appreciated.

Muito obrigado!
