The entire podcast team abandoned Paul by fleeing abroad, so no hour-long episode as usual but only a brief overview of this week’s headlines. Agriculture minister Henk Staghouwer resigned after concluding he wasn’t the man for the job, Dutch leaders offered their condolences to the British Royal Family following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the NS plans to cancel all train services as rail workers continue to strike for better pay and conditions, the Netherlands hit the EU target of filling gas reserves by 80% and Max Verstappen won the Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort for the second time in a row.
No ophef of the week: (all of the news made us cry)
