The Washington Post today launched the first episode of “El Washington Post,” its Spanish-language podcast that will explore the top stories shaping the world.

Produced from The Washington Post newsroom, the 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. His 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, radio journalist for Caracol Radio in Bogota.

In 20-minute episodes released twice-weekly at 6 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time, Iragorri, Toribio and Espinosa will give listeners smart insight into three to four global news stories. Episodes will feature analysis from Washington Post reporters and contributors, and interviews with newsmakers.

“We’re thrilled to introduce a unique podcast from which listeners can get fair and trustworthy analysis of the news from all corners of the world in Spanish,” said Iragorri. “We aim to leave listeners feeling more informed and enlightened about both the stories at the top of the headlines and those that are under the radar.”

“El Washington Post” is the company’s second Spanish-language product launched this year. This summer, The Post launched “Post Opinión” which publishes original and translated Spanish-language op-eds. You can subscribe to “El Washington Post” wherever you listen to your podcasts.
