This week on our podcast, we tried to explain the very complex Supreme Court trial against Catalan separatist leaders, who are facing a range of charges for their involvement in the illegal independence referendum on October 1, 2017, and the unilateral declaration of independence that was passed weeks later in the regional parliament. We looked at what’s at stake for the Spanish justice system and why the case has been described as the most important in Spanish history.

And on a completely different topic, we discussed Spanish eating and lifestyle habits after the Bloomberg index ranked Spain as the healthiest country in the world.

¿Qué? is a podcast that tries to explain to an English-speaking audience the curious, the under-reported and sometimes simply bizarre news stories that are often in the headlines in Spain.
