Spain’s new budget with EOGHAN GILMARTIN and TOMMY GREENE

Episode 40: The Future of Unidas Podemos The Sobremesa Podcast

Sorry this episode is a bit late but I have covid!Recorded two weeks ago, Nerea Fernández Cordero, Co-coordinadora at IU Exterior (Izquierda Unida), and political journalist  Eoghan Gilmartin join me to discuss the coalition party called Unidas Podemos. We talk about how it came to be and where it goes from here that their founding leader has left politics, and now that they are part of the first left wing coalition since the second republic.

I hope you find this interesting take on the budget helpful. Please head on over and read their article for the full story.
