All the fun of feria! Madrid’s San Isidro festival

In episode three of When in Spain I guide us around the Feria de San Isidro in Madrid and take in the sights, sounds and flavours. Find out the places to celebrate, a bit of the history and what a ‘rosquilla’ is.

Exploring Madrid – La Latina and life in the barrio

In this, the second episode of the When in Spain podcast show I take you for a wander around La Latina, the neighbourhood where I live and one of the oldest and most famous in Madrid. We’ll take in the sights and sounds while I talk about everday life in the barrio and offer a few personal observations.

Welcome to the When in Spain podcast series!

What is When in Spain? In this first ever episode, I’ll introduce you to me, Paul Burge and the When in Spain podcast show. I’ll give a flavour of what to expect from future episodes. When in Spain is a weekly podcast series, recorded in Madrid and accompanied by this blog, where I’ll talk about my ‘warts and all’ observations and insights on life and culture on the Iberian peninsular.
