DutchNews podcast – The Whistleblowing Chicken Edition – Week 41


There’s an early Christmas feel to this week’s podcast as we unpack the eagerly awaited coalition agreement, wrap up the Abba penalty kicks saga and find out how a neglected pet chicken led police to a drug dealer’s treasure trove. We also have news of some green eggs and a ham-fisted attempt to break out of jail.
