We’re living on the edge in this week’s podcast, and not just because the pinautomaten in Albert Heijn broke down. The king weighs into the Irish border issue that has been stirred up again by Brexit, Jeroen Dijsselbloem drops a bombshell into the pension talks, universities are accused of setting the bar too low and YouTube causes ophef by taking down the wrong type of Nazis. In sport the women’s team scrape through their opening World Cup match while the men once again lose a tournament final to the host nation. And we discuss whether bringing back children from the Syrian civil war is desirable or feasible.
