This week, the need for more buzz around Europe: the bee kind, and the excitement kind. Our very special guest to round off the year (and keep Katy company while Dominic was rolling around on the floor) is the Dutch writer Joris Luyendijk, who despite having been named Bad News reporter for De Correspondent has more hope than you might think for this continent as we roll into 2019. Trigger warning: there’s a mention or two of the b-word as we talk about why Europe ain’t so boring and the mysteries of the British psyche. Plus: Powerfrauen; an all-too-human robot, and the fight to save our pollinators.
Thank you so much for listening in 2018! We’ll be back in January. In the meantime, we’d love it if you left us a review as a Christmas present (preferably a nice one).
Bonne année, Frohes neues Jahr, and Feliz Año Nuevo!
