Just a quick note today.
I’ve recently been interviewed by Paul Burge of the When in Spain podcast.
Paul’s a former BBC journalist who’s now living in Madrid, and in the interview he asks me plenty of questions about the great Madrid vs Barcelona debate.
- Which city is better for expats?
- Who’s friendlier: Madrileños or Barcelonians?
- Do you need to learn Catalan if you’re living in Barcelona?
- Who’s got better food?
- And much more!
Listen to find out the answers…
Or check out the official website of the podcast here: When in Spain.
(You wouldn’t believe how annoying it is trying to get photos in front of famous BCN monuments. There’s always some huge crowd of people.)
More about living in Madrid and Barcelona
As you know, Madrid vs Barcelona is a big debate here in Spain.
I even wrote an article about it here on the blog: Pros and cons of Madrid and Barcelona.
And also on Lonely Planet, where I talk about living between the two cities.
In the end, I guess it mostly comes down to the beach.
And I’ve gotta admit: now that I’m up in Barcelona most of the time, living near the beach is pretty great.
Anyway, check out the podcast if you’re so inclined – both my interview and other episodes. It’s well-made and always has some interesting Spain-related content.
For now, I’m going to stop flogging the comatose mule of the Madrid vs Barcelona debate, and move on to other (more exciting) topics.

P.S. I’ve got a podcast of my own these days, if you’d like to check it out. It’s about learning English, ’cause that’s what I’m (mostly) known for. You can find links to everything at anchor.fm/aprendemasingles – Enjoy!
