DutchNews podcast – The Headbanging Vultures Edition – Week 22

In the week that Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Paris climate change agreement, we’ve compiled a podcast from recycled material  – another round of coalition talks, another hate speech inquiry for Geert Wilders and the first Dutch winner of a major cycling tour race for 37 years. And we dive in to the ongoing debate about whether English has become too dominant at Dutch universities.
