The Washington Post announced that more episodes of “El Washington Post,” the news organisation’s Spanish-language podcast, will be available weekly, increasing production from two days a week to four.
Starting September 8th, listeners can access new episodes Tuesday through Friday.
“We have been very pleased with the podcast’s engagement and the growth in its audience, the vast majority of which is based abroad,” said Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, The Post’s managing editor for digital strategy. “With this expansion of coverage, we hope to deliver more of the show’s signature blend of reporting and analysis to keep listeners informed of the top international headlines.”
“El Washington Post” podcast is hosted by Juan Carlos Iragorri, an Emmy Award-winning journalist and author with more than 30 years of experience in print, radio and television. The co-hosts are Dori Toribio, a broadcast journalist who has covered Washington since 2010 for outlets including Spain’s Mediaset TV group, and Jorge Espinosa, a radio journalist for Caracol Radio in Bogota.
In each episode, Iragorri, Toribio and Espinosa will continue to give listeners smart insight into three to four global news stories. Since launching in December 2019, episodes have featured analysis from Washington Post reporters and contributors and interviews with newsmakers, including Iván Duque Márquez, president of Colombia, and Felipe González, former prime minister of Spain.
