    thank you for the podcast! I’m not sure why he says “tem sim…” instead of “tenho sim” in the first person. Is it because “ter” here is used more generally (like “yes, there are tangerines”)?

      Exactly, tem more often than not takes on the meaning of “there is” or “there are.” Tem sim is like saying “there is, yes.”
