Muttisplaining the German Elections with Pia Virolainen
(apologies for the audio quality in this episode; should be back to normal in future)
They didn't feature the disturbing #blindsides or glitzy drama of other recent elections, but the lack of interest surrounding last month's federal elections in Germany belies their importance for the world and the uncertainty over their consequences. Honorary German and longtime friend of the show Pia Virolainen calls in to discuss the remarkable continuity of Angela Merkel and the surprising changes to the political landscape in Germany and beyond. As always you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.
