I met Chris this year in Mas Nou near Barcelona at the Podcamp Barcelona event. The Podcamp was all about new media, like blogging, audio and video podcasting, Screen casts, mashups and a sprinkling of politicians doing what politicians do (mostly talking rubbish). I presented a podcasting for beginners session and a couple of people turned up and listened even.
Chris tells us about what it is like living in Spain in a couple of different places and has lots to say about some tech type things here in Spain. He also talks about language learning from 2 perspectives, both the teaching English angle and also regards learning Catalan and Spanish.
You can click on the picture to the left to get the podcast. It is an enhanced podcast with clickable links. More links below for Chris also. You can contact Chris at Cataspanglish on Wordpress and also at Podcamp Barcelona, he even has a web site about Spanish cooking called Spanish Sauce.
Check out Chris's views on TV in Spain and the politics of internet and Telefonica. Have you wondered why we only get low speed broadband here in Spain?

There was Mark Pendleton from Coffee Break Spanish, You might like to subscribe to that to help you learn Spanish easily with a podcast.
You don't have to have an iPod to listen to a Podcast. A Podcast is downloadable media that you can also view in your web browser, basically an internet radio show. Or an internet TV show if it is a video podcast like BravaChat Podcast 04 with the Catalan Human castles
The Sponsor for the show is SkypeOut - A service from Skype that allows you to call ordinary phone very cheaply from your computer. I have used it and it does work very well.
