¿Qué? podcast S05E01: Pandemic snapshot and Ceuta migrant crisis

After a one-year hiatus due to the coronavirus, we are back with a brand new series. This week, we discuss the current epidemiological situation in Spain, and examine why thousands of people were able to breach the country’s border in North Africa

After a one-year break due to the coronavirus crisis, we are back with series five of the ¿Qué? podcast. This week, we share anecdotes about our time in lockdown and discuss the current epidemiological situation in Spain. We also talk about how thousands of people swam to the Spanish North African city of Ceuta after Morocco relaxed controls at the border.

¿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.

You can find the show on Spotify, you can subscribe through this RSS Feed or via your favorite podcast app, such as Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts. You can also request it via Alexa, Siri or your Google Assistant.

If you have any comments or questions about the topics we discuss, or would like to suggest issues for future podcasts, email us at englishedition@elpais.es or tweet Simon Hunter at @simoninmadrid using the hashtag #quepodcast.
