May 1: Sticks and stones and dandruff

We couldn’t have two more different interviews for you this week: we’re talking anti-Semitism in Germany and the art of remaining zen on a beach in Scotland.

After two German rappers sparked national outrage with lyrics about the Holocaust, Human Rights Watch Germany’s chief Wenzel Michalski is on the line to talk about his all too personal experience of Europe’s rising problem with anti-Semitism.

But why throw stones when you can turn them into art instead? Scottish photographer Andy Buchanan brings us the weird, wonderful and unexpectedly hilarious story of covering the European Stone Stacking Championships. You can see his beautiful  photos in the Guardian here.

Plus, Macron Does America and Bulgaria Does It Wrong (check out former guest Georgi Gotev’s reporting on a night of vodka and scantily-clad ladies here). And why not stick around and Take A Chance On Dominic’s happy ending this week?

You can check out the story behind our artwork, as mentioned in the show, on the great new podcast I Should Start A Podcast.

And if you have a few minutes to spare, we’d love it if you could leave us a review — it helps new listeners to find the show.

Thanks for listening, Europe!
