Hear all about it: Dutch News Podcast – The Panda to Populism Edition – Week 11

In this week’s election podcast we analyse the results of the vote and look ahead to the business of forming the next government. There’s also some news on the giant pandas and a businessman who’s been ordered to remove 280 goldfish from a canal.

Note: this episode was recorded on Friday morning before it was known that PvdA MP Lilianne Ploumen had retained her seat on preference votes.
