[Podcast] Josephine Baker, más que una bailarina, y las Enfermeras Piloto Socorristas del Aire. Archivo Sonoro de Sandglass Patrol 15






Hoy empezamos lo que queremos que llegue a ser una serie: mujeres hablando de mujeres, de pioneras, de aviadoras. Llevamos años escribiendo y hablando sobre aviadoras. Pero aún así sabemos que son grandes desconocidas tanto entre el público masculino como el femenino. Así que hemos querido que sean ellas las que pongan voz a estas historias y cuenten desde su punto de vista historias que, hasta la grabación del podcast, desconocían.

En este episodio la periodista Karma Peiró nos va a hablar de la cara más desconocida de Josephine Baker, habitualmente conocida como bailarina, pero no como aviadora o espía. Y También nos hablará del grupo del que formó parte, las IPSA (Infirmières Pilotes Secouristes de l’Air – Enfermeras Piloto Socorristas del Aire).

El podcast se puede enontrar en Amazon Music, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Ivoox, Spotify

pd: Si la intro y la despedida os son familiares, que no os sorprenda. En un ejercicio de nostalgia podcasteril he hablado con Javier Lago para pedirle permiso y utlizar la introducción que hizo para el que, si no recuerdo mal, fue el primer podcast español sobre aviación: Remove Before Flight RBF podcast

La pregunta que le hicimos por Whatsapp fue: ¿crees que la guerra de Ucrania ha favorecido la venta del F-35 en Europa?. La respuesta: un recordatorio de la historia del programa desde que se llamaba JSF, un análisis de sus fortalezas y debilidades, anécdotas… y la respuesta a la pregunta formulada por Whatsapp.

 

Esperamos que disfrutéis de ello.

[Podcast] Un Pelotari en el Normandie-Niemen, con la asociación Sancho de Beurko. Archivo Sonoro de Sandglass Patrol 12

 


Hoy estamos con Guillermo Tabernilla, de la asociación Sancho de Beurko, los que demostrarían que lo de los windtalkers vascos es una leyenda. La asociación se dedica a investigar a los vascos descendientes de vascos (la diáspora vasca) que combatieron en distintos conflictos. Robert Iribarne es un vasco-francés, campeón de pelota vasca y piloto de caza, que vió servicio en l’Armée de l’Air primero, y en el grupo francés integrado en la VVS, el Normandie-Niemen. Ésta es su historia.
