Barcelona and the Spanish Civil War The Sobremesa Podcast

This week Eoghan talks to Nick Lloyd about his book 'Forgotten Places: Barcelona and the Spanish Civil War'. The discussion ranges from George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia and the strategic dilemmas facing the Republican side during the 1936-9 conflict to the contrasting experiences of the war in Madrid and Barcelona. You can find more information about the Nick's Civil War tours at his website: https://thespanishcivilwar.com/
  1. Barcelona and the Spanish Civil War
  2. Spain's new Abortion Law, Women's Rights and Menstrual leave with Deb Madden
  3. Catalan Gate
  4. Stalin's Niños: Educating Spanish Civil War Refugee Children in the Soviet Union with Karl Qualls
  5. The Industrialization of Asturias with Luke Bowe

In this week’s episode I discuss Vox’s motion of no confidence (due September?¿?) and how the political landscape surrounding it on both the left and right. With Cuidudanos and the PSOE getting close, how will Podemos feel? Are the coalition government going through a patch of jealousy, or just seeing if there is a better offer?

Coronavirus is heating up over Spain, but will the government’s efforts to ramp up testing and organisation be enough to stop another State of Alarm?

Then there is the previous King. What has he been up to? More like what hasn’t he been up to….

Remember, you can tweet on #Sobremesa, and don’t forget to share the podcast with your friends.
