Q’Crack – A podcast to learn from the best!

Alberto Cortés moved to Urban Campus Mellado Madrid Coliving and hit the ground running. Within just the first few weeks of his stay, he had organized a padel tournament, mapped out an awards ceremony and planned the first Q’crack interview to take place in the coliving space… the first of many.

Q’Crack, created by Alberto Cortes and Leonardo Armas, is an entrepreneurially driven podcast that interviews individuals who have excelled in their industry on a personal or professional level. They highlight trade secrets, discuss everything from failures to success, and get exclusive one-on-ones. 

The dynamic duo knows how to attract talent, since they’ve launched they’ve featured CEO’s, top-performing athletes, tech founders and more.

Their last interview, organized in one of the Mellado Coliving’s common areas featured none other than Carlos Arevalo Moreno, Director of one of the most reputable Spanish bakeries, Pastelería Mallorca. Residents joined in as Carlos divulged the ups and downs of running a family business, his core responsibilities, and what it’s like to manage one of the most beloved and well-known bakeries in the Spanish capital, which by the way, turned 90 last year… Chapeau!
