Where is Juan Carlos?

This is the question on everybody’s lips.

In this episode I talk to Spanish Historian Tom Wardle about Juan Carlos the first and his role in the Spanish Transition. I also look at some previous referendums that have been held in Spain, and what the current state of affairs might mean for the country in the future.

Be sure to check out an extended interview with Tom next week about his research into the Historical Memory Movement here in Spain.
