This week on our ¿Qué? podcast, we talk about how the coronavirus outbreak is affecting Spain, and discuss the court investigation into why the producers of Gran Hermano, the Spanish version of the reality television show Big Brother, did not do more to protect a female contestant who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a fellow contestant.

¿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.
