This week on our Spanish news podcast, we look at the tragic case of Anna and Olivia, two little girls who are thought to have been murdered by their father in Spain’s Canary Islands, and discuss the broader problem of gender violence in Spain.

We also explain how an announced “bilateral meeting” between Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and US President Joe Biden turned into a hallway chat that lasted less than a minute.

As usual, we also catch up on all of your correspondence and take a look at the other stories of the week that have caught our eye.

¿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.
