This week on our Spanish news podcast, we look at the ongoing spike in coronavirus cases in Spain, and wonder what it will mean for the country as the summer season progresses. We also consider the protests that broke out this week in Cuba, and how Spanish politicians from different parties have reacted to the unrest.

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.
