Episode 3 of Speaking of Spain looks this week at the History of Black Monday in Spain, tracing the origins from the transition to democracy up until the present economic and, some may say, moral crises. Listen to the story of what happened and why it reverberates even to this day.
Also on the podcast this week is the second App review: Abbey TextGrabber - the OCR and translation tool. With this cheap mobile application you not not only have a translation tool always with you, but a mobile scanner too. Find out why that just may be what you are looking for.
Finally, as the weather still appears a tad grey as this podcast is uploaded to iTunes, the Monk digs out an old classic warming recipe to keep our toes warm until the spring arrives and finds what role Satan's footsteps played in this traditional warming soup recipe.
