Diada, The National Day of Catalonia: an Interview with Alícia Hernàndez Grande Sobremesa Podcast

In a special edition of Sobremesa, I interview researcher and Phd candidate Alícia Hernàndez Grande. Here she explains the history behind the independence movement and Diada, the national day of Catalonia. She also shares her observations from the 2017 referendum and where the Catalan identity comes from.

  4. Spain’s Memory Wars: an interview with Tom Wardle
  5. Where is Juan Carlos? 10/8/20

This week’s episode falls on the anniversary of Federico Garcia Lorca’s murder by the fascist forces during the Spanish Civil war.

I took this opportunity to change the podcasts format this week to interview Tom Wardle, a researcher and historian who is currently completing his PhD on historical memory activism here in Spain.

Take a listen to my interview with him as we cover the past, present and future of the movement and why 750,000 euros is not enough of a grant from the government.

I will be taking a break for a week, but I will be back at the end of August with more gossip from the Spanish political world, and discussions on the Spanish identity in the 21st century.

Sobremesa is now available on Google, Spotify and Apple
