A special show marking A WHOLE YEAR OF THE PODCAST! Extra brilliant guests are here to help us mark this very narcissistic edition of anniversary annexe/commemoration corner. Flavia Kleiner, whose Operation Libero has been waging a quietly successful war against rightwing populism in Switzerland, calls in from Zurich with some lessons for the rest of Europe. And Andrea Chalupa is here to discuss her new film Gareth Jones, about a courageous Welsh journalist’s battle to tell the truth about the famine her grandfather survived in Ukraine 85 years ago. Plus: vote-buying, espionage, and a few splashes of prosecco.
WE’RE LIVE!! HERE’S OUR TRAILER, WHICH YOU CAN ALSO FIND ON ITUNES AND MOST OTHER PODCAST PLATFORMS.

*Sorry for shouting
The Europeans is a moderately amusing podcast hosted by Katy Lee, a reporter in Paris, and Dominic Kraemer, an opera singer in Amsterdam. Every week we ring each other up to talk about what’s been going on around the continent — and we ring up all kinds of interesting people in other countries to find out what’s been happening where they are.
This isn’t just a podcast about politics, though there’ll be plenty of that. We also talk about artists and musicians and other people who are doing interesting cultural stuff around Europe, and what’s been making people laugh from Italy to Finland.
If you’re looking for a Europe-themed podcast that’s about more than just Brexit, you’ve come to the right place.
“This podcast is a miracle! Has everything I miss in German all-white-male-gravitas podcasts. A celebration of European diversity, committed to create optimistic vibes.” – Marian, Germany
