In this episode I interview Professor Sandie Holguin about the regional identities in Spain and how they interact with the national identity. We also discuss the EU and how it forms a part of the political scene in Spanish politics today.
Prior to the interview, I give an update on Spanish current affairs from the past week. This includes a breakdown around the bank merger between Bankia and La Caixa. I also explain why some Spanish institutions are still awaiting key appointments from the government, and how Madrid is managing the return to schools amid the covid-19 pandemic.
This week the podcast hit 100 listeners and 100 followers on Twitter. Many thanks to the listeners and guests who have come on the program.
Initially, this podcast was a summer project whilst I was unemployed. However, next week I go back to work and will also be doing a qualification in my profession whilst also trying to write several books. Despite this, I plan to carry on with the podcast.
If you know anyone (from different regions of Spain) that has a keen interest in regional politics and identity then please contact me on Facebook or Twitter. There is also a form below if you do not have these platforms…
Remember to share the podcast with your friends and family.
I would like to reach 200 listeners by Christmas.
