Cazza Wilson ,

Welcome back! From Cara Wilson

Can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see Qué podcast back. The dulcet tones of Simon and Melissa bringing us their take on Spanish news and current affairs - it was like coming home when I tuned in again - brilliantly presented, so informative, interesting, witty and amusing to boot. What not to like?! Keep the podcasts coming - we’ve missed you!

Very useful

After 10 long years living in Spain I can’t believe I’ve only just found this podcast!! Very useful for understanding Spain’s latest new stories so I can finally know what’s going on in this crazy country! Keep up the good work! X

So British

The interview with Simon Manley is just so nice, so gentle. A couple of chums having a chat. And yet it still manages to be informative. I've no idea what the option to gazpacho was though and who wants to eat percebes anyway - my wife always contrasts them, unfavourably, to a form of human mucus.
