DutchNews podcast – The Blok’s Book of Bigots Edition – Week 36

The podcast returns after the summer hiatus with news of a foreign minister fighting to stay in his job, two children fighting to stay in the country and students fighting for space on overcrowded university campuses. We also bring you up to speed on the terrorist stabbing at Amsterdam station and ING bank’s unprecedented fine for money laundering, plus how Wesley Sneijder’s last match as a Dutch international gave a whole new meaning to playing at home. In our discussion we look back at the best stories and ophefs of the long hot summer.
