And we also discuss the possible ramifications of the tragic suicide of a 32-year-old mother of two in Madrid, who took her own life after her workmates circulated a video of a sexual nature in which she appeared.

¿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.
