Filling the Sink, the Catalan News podcast, has, as of Tuesday, its own profiles on Twitter and Facebook.

The launch coincided with the first anniversary of the project – Filling the Sink published its first episode on October 31, 2020, looking at the impact Halloween has had on the Catalan tradition of La Castanyada.

Presented by Lorcan Doherty, the podcast recently reached the 50-episode milestone. The latest episode looks at the pros and cons of living in Catalonia, with members of the international community having their say about topics including the climate, food, health care, rents, salaries and bureaucracy.

What is 'Filling the Sink'?

Filling the Sink is a weekly podcast on all things Catalan. The Catalan News team brings you chat, interviews, and features on everything from food to football, culture, traditions to current affairs. No need to worry if you don't know much about this corner of land nestled between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. As they say in Catalonia, "de mica en mica, s'omple la pica" – little by little, the sink fills up.

Elections, political stories, social debates such as the airport expansion or the conflict between taxis and Uber, Catalan wine, mushroom hunting, myths and legends, top sightseeing spots such as Val d'Aran and Montserrat, the Catalan language, practical information for foreign residents…This is a podcast that touches on everything, is informative but informal, and never takes up more than 25 minutes of your time.
