This week we hear from a Bristolian from Barcelona Elia Pablo and hear why she chose Bristol as her UK home. Like the Basque country and more recently Crimea, Catalonia wants to secede from Madrid as the politicians there are not doing a good job. The king Juan-Carlos has immunity from prosecution so he's above the law.
Joseph Miranda is a long-time US wargame designer who, 10-15 years ago, designed a game called 'Ukraine' which reflects in some ways what we are seeing in the news at the moment.
The game features Information Operations targeting TV channels and Joseph explains that he does not have a TV in is own home, preferring to get his news from technical and military specialist websites. He is currently working on 'Kiev' and other 'New World Order' games including China versus Russia scenario.

Mike explains the various theories and looks at the possible dangers of something similar happening again.
