Jason WebsterJason Webster is a writer and historian. His long list of books include the Max Cámara series, (we talk a bit about Or the Bull Kills You) ,The Spy with 29 Names: The story of the Second World War’s most audacious double agent and Duende: A Journey In Search Of Flamenco .

Jason shares his views on how Spain has changed over the past decades, the role of the new monarchy and  Valencia’s erm… profile.

We also talk a bit about the profile of bullfighting in Spain and how sports personalities might be the new role models, when politicians from the traditional parties seem no longer up to the job.

Below is a photo of the Alhambra palace, which Jason mentions as one of the things that drew him to Spain.
