Todays theme is Change. There are four short parts to this weeks program: Changing Seasons, Changing Italy, Changing your Fridge contents, and Change in the Air. Yes Change is in the air and as a tribute to Bowies comeback album, this epìsode focuses on ch…ch…ch changes and how Spain fits or doesn't fit into the wider scenario.
1: Changing Seasons looks at spring, change and the idea for renovation. 2: Changing Italy looks at how the results of the elections there may have repercussions for Spain too. 3: Change in the fridge looks at what to do when everything is rotten. Argue about the extent of rottenness - or just put it all in the bin! 4: Finally, Olives and how to find marination heaven with a touch of chilli and garlic.

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.
