Our first interview in Italian!

We’ve been featured in the very excellent European newsletter of the Italian newspaper Il Foglio, EUPorn, which promises to show off “the sexy side of Europe”.  We approve.

Katy chatted on Twitter with Il Foglio’s Paola Peduzzi about our quest to make Europe feel less boring and faraway. You can check out the full conversation here.

We particularly liked this description of The Europeans: “The weekly podcast which gets you to Europe in half an hour, holds your hand so you don’t get lost, and leaves you with a smile.”

Grazie, Il Foglio!

Flavia and the Machine (anniversary episode)

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.

Welcome to The Europeans!

The Europeans is an award-winning weekly podcast hosted by Katy Lee, a reporter in Paris, and Dominic Kraemer, an opera singer in Amsterdam. We talk about politics in Europe, but we also interview the artists, scientists, activists and chefs who are shaping this weird and wonderful continent.

We also never talk about Brexit. Because for goodness’ sake, we could all do with a break.

“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

Our music is by the ace composer Jim Barne. We love him.
