El Arpa Media (Podcast!)

By El Arpa Media (Podcast!)

This Hiberno-Iberian podcast features the best of ESL chat, literature, culture, and miscellaneous departures and tangents. We cover a diverse range of topics, and it's always me (Indy) in the hot seat, along with Meri and her Spanish ways, which modulate the unfettered viscosity of my Irish ones. Finally, we record everywhere and anywhere, so if want to hear what Madrid sounds like, you will. You will also learn what a microphone sounds like in a car, the cavernous interior of a museum, and that little gap between a bar and a portaloo.
