DutchNews podcast – The Long Live King Trouby Edition – Week 16


As the country gears up for the Easter weekend, the podcast team checks on the progress of the fledgling provincial governments and asks if fears that the housing market is overheating are well grounded. We also look at Ajax’s rejuvenation in Europe, what sank Amsterdam’s last floating flower business and how one of the country’s most decorated soldiers poured home-made fertiliser all over his reputation. And with a week to go to King’s Day, we ask why young people are turning their backs on the monarchy.
