Spain!

Spain, from the outside, inside.

This podcast gives you an unprecedented outside view from someone living in the country. Without all the history (baggage?) many Spanish people view things, this podcast steps back and explain things many spanish dont think a lot about, like why things are the way they are and what it means. This podcast makes things easier to understand at face value. It will explain this many Spanish take for granted or don’t think a lot about but just accept. WHILE also explaining the background. Knowledgeable and informative, funny, unpretentious and serious at the same time.

Excellent Summary of Top Current Issues in Spain

Very well-done coverage of current political and social issues. Especially good in explaining the fluid positions and dysfunction of the main political parties. Presenters are excellent. Thanks, El País, for sponsoring the podcast.

¿Qué? is our only “must listen” podcast

If you want to better understand what’s going on in Spain on any given week, and your Spanish isn’t all that good yet, you must listen to ¿Qué? en Ingles.
No matter how much you think you know about the country, the people and the culture, each week you will be surprised by something new and unexpected, delivered in a thoroughly entertaining way by 2 people (Melissa and Simon) who clearly enjoy their jobs and each other.
You have our heartfelt gratitude. And we can’t wait to listen to the next episode.
Abrazos,
Richard and Sherry
