Spain's Budget 2023: A Social Democratic Response to the Cost of Living Crisis? The Sobremesa Podcast

This week Spain's progressive coalition unveiled its budget for next year aimed at dealing with the cost of living crisis. Eoghan sat down with sociologist Carlos Delclós to analyse the package of measures that were agreed by the country's progressive coalition and to discuss what it says about Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez's party political strategy as we enter a big election year.

With coronavirus cases on the rise, in this episode I look at some of the figures from various sources from the last two weeks.

Cases are up but so is testing, and each region is doing its own thing with track and trace, some better than others. Taking a look at the whole picture is worth it to get an idea of where the country stands, but treating it as one big problem is probably not the answer. What do you think the government will do next?

I also discuss the use of the Spanish flag on the mask here. I also ask, are we at a point in time where there is a reformation of the idea of what Spain stands for. What do you think?
