Objectif Tintin - Catalan podcast

#1 · Posted: 22 Oct 2011 08:16
I'm not going to post a link as it appears to be frowned upon, but I just accidentally stumbled on a Catalunya Radio podcast, which, as far as I can make out, is all about Tintin. Although my Catalan is negligible, there seem to be bits in Spanish, French and even English, which does help.

Just curious to know whether anybody else had listened to it, and what exactly it's all about? Apologies if it's already been discussed elsewhere - I couldn't find it.

It's a program entirely based on Tintin. If I remember well, on sundays afternoon, they make short seasons of about 7 programs in winter (Christmas) and 7 on summer. They begun in 2006 so its just finished the 10th season.

They spend about one hour talking about Tintin and his world, the books and stories, showrooms, curiosities, they organize trips to see the Musée Hergé, books related, etc.

Its conductor, Jordi Tardà is a very well known and renowned catalan tintinologist. He has an enormous Tintin collection and sometimes shows it to the public. He has also publish a quite good book of Tintin.
