¿Qué? podcast, S02E10: Madrid City Hall suspends fines in low-emissions zone

This week we discuss the controversial move by the new right-wing council in the capital, as well as examining a bungled assassination attempt by two Spanish women

This week on our ¿Qué? podcast, we discuss the lifting of fines for polluting cars that enter the Madrid Central low-emissions zone, a controversial move by the new right-wing city council that has attracted the attention of the foreign press.

We also examine a bungled attempt by two Spanish women to have a man assassinated in order to harvest and sell his organs, and talk about the discovery of a 39-kilo haul of cocaine in one of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s planes when it made a stop in Seville.

¿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.
