My latest podcast is now online. This time, it’s not about food (Ben Curtis and I cover that here) it’s about the wind. Not just any wind, but the infamous Levante. Be prepared to get blown away. (Sorry.)
Just a quick note to share what I’ve been up to lately with my good friend Ben Curtis. Many of you have probably seen his blog or listened to his podcast before–he’s been writing and talking about Spain longer than anyone else on the internet! For the past five years we’ve been having lunch on a regular basis and we’ve had so much fun eating our way across Madrid and elsewhere that we’ve teamed up to create a new podcast about it.
Check it out!
If you like it and you’d like to give us a hand promoting it, please rate our show on iTunes, it would be a huge help for us. Thank you and hasta pronto!
Pamplona’s Fiesta de San Fermín, the fiesta to end all fiestas, is underway again. Hear about all the insanity in my latest podcast.
My good friend Graham Roumieu, a very accomplished visual artist, made the above illustration for my podcast cover art. (And this one blinks every five seconds. Cool, eh?) I think it’s perfect. Funny but also elegantly simple and incisive. Thank you Graham!
In this first of a two-part series about jamón Iberico de bellota, I talk about the history of pigs and pork with author Mark Essig. If you are a fan of food and history, buy his book (see the affiliate link below). It’s impeccably researched and written in a plain, clear prose style, making it both enjoyable to read as well incredibly informative.
Get a taste of it by hitting play on the podcast link below. I hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!
My podcast on paella is now up! Listen to it here and sign up for the free recipe below. Adapted from the winning recipe of one of Spain’s greatest paella chefs, two-time Word Champion Julián Garcia. Trust me, you can taste the difference…

With my photo book of Spain finished, I’ve been wanting to take on a new project and I’m happy to announce that it’s already online: The Spanish Food podcast! Episode numero uno is ready to download on the iTunes store here. (If you don’t have iTunes, you can also listen on Soundcloud, or right here on my own site.)
It was an easy choice for me. I love podcasts and I love Spanish food. I’ve asked a lot of travellers to Spain how important food is to them and for most people it’s not just important, it’s everything–the central thing around which all other activities are planned!
And podcasts are such a great way to, well, consume content about Spain. You just download episodes to your phone or iPad and then you can listen whenever and wherever you want. Think of it as radio on demand. And there’s something special about listening to high-quality audio. It’s been called ‘the most visual medium’ for good reason. It transports you to another place, and the sounds and words excite the imagination like nothing else.
So please join me on this new adventure. If there’s anything in particular you would like to know more about, leave a comment below, I’d love to hear from you!
