This week on our ¿Qué? podcast, we look at how activist and actor Willy Toledo ended up in court over several messages he posted on Facebook that offended a group of religious lawyers, and also consider the current limits of free expression in Spain.

¿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.
