Renato Gonçalves (@renatodsg) is a writer for SB Nation blogs Barça Blaugranes and Bitter and Blue. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat.

Renato and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) have much to discuss in this latest Berenato episode. They discuss last Sunday’s Clásico and Hernández Hernández’s tenuous (at best) grip over the proceedings. Renato celebrates winning the league and the inevitable unbeaten season, while Jeremy reflects on Atlético Madrid’s insipid 2-0 loss to Espanyol and making the Europa League final. The podders go on to wonder whether Diego Simeone will ever recapture the essence of his famous 2013/14 side.

Elsewhere, Jeremy tries to work a loan deal for Ousmane Dembélé, while Renato waxes lyrical about the “law of the ex,” the magic of “Hamilton” and the ongoing NBA Playoffs. The guys also check in on Arda Turan and co. over in Istanbul.
