DutchNews podcast – The Unfortunate Train Name Edition – Week 44

This week’s podcast has a transport theme as a judge calls time on Amsterdam’s beer bikes, the Anne Frank Foundation cries foul on Germany’s national rail operator and Russia has a hissy fit over air cargo slots at Schiphol. We also tackle the mystery of the cat that travelled 150km to a Belgian town with an appropriate name. In our discussion we analyse the two-day debate in Parliament to welcome the new Dutch government.
