DutchNews podcast – The Mosquitos Should Be Dead By Halloween Edition – Week 45

The regular podcast team returns to discuss whether nuclear power will kill us faster than global warming, why there’s been a rash of births among sports stars and whether filming at accident scenes should be banned. We also bring you up to date on the Pakistani lawyer fleeing religious persecution, Ajax’s revival in Europe and a forthcoming feast of Rembrandt. In the discussion we ask why several hospitals were allowed to go bankrupt last month and how the government can prevent a repeat of the chaotic scenes that followed.
