This week, on the second ¿Qué? podcast for 2021, we discuss the changes to the coronavirus restrictions on travelers from the United Kingdom and what they mean for the Spanish tourism industry. We also look at the new Catalan government, which has made securing clemency for the jailed leaders of the 2017 breakaway bid a priority – a situation that is set to put Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez in a difficult position.

¿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.
