DutchNews podcast – The We Apologise for Everything Edition – Week 28

The final podcast before we take a well-earned summer break features sporting triumph and tragedy, why Bono held up the coalition talks and the school photo that sparked a nationwide debate. It was also the week when Tijn, the six-year-old boy who raised €2.5 million for charity by selling nail polish, and the mother of Eurovision trio OG3NE sadly lost their battles with cancer.
