In this episode I interview cultural and intellectual historian Professor Sandie Holguin, where we talk about the historical construction of the national Spanish identity. She is also the author of Flamenco Nation: The Construction of the Spanish National Identity.

You can get a copy of the book here or on Amazon.

At the beginning of the episode I will give you an update on the national situation as the children return to school, and as the government is getting ready to pass its first economic budget, albeit with a few relationship complications and political party rivalries.

Sobremesa will be changing shape in the coming months with more interviews. I will be covering a wider range of topics whilst keeping the political updates at the start of each episode.

Let me know what you think in the comments.
