PODCAST | Best of 2021: Esperanza Aguirre’s Goya

During Christmas we propose a different plan. Some days we will share with you episodes of other podcasts that we like and other days, like today, we will reissue episodes of ‘Un tema al Día’ that you may have missed.

Today we rescue one of our favorite episodes. It is the story of a painting without a painter hanging above the fireplace of an old aristocrat. An inheritance, a bankruptcy and a former Minister of Culture, Esperanza Aguirre, who hides information in order to sell the painting to a builder friend: Juan Miguel Villar Mir.

A beautiful tale of aristocracy, cultural heritage and we’ll see if corruption, with the help of Ignacio Escolar, who uncovered the story in, and with B., Esperanza Aguirre’s sister-in-law (yes, the WhatsApp audios that sound are real).

This episode first aired on October 4, 2021.

You will also have it available every morning on the rest of the platforms.

What is this? has released this daily podcast, with the collaboration of Podimo, to explain the news to you. Hosted by Juanlu Sánchez and with the help of the journalists from the newsroom and other guests, we will stop from Monday to Friday on an issue: it can be a complex story, a substantive debate or a simple story that is worthwhile. A pill of sound to accompany you at breakfast, on the way to work, during the lunch break or before going to sleep.
