Dutch politics explained in a highly entertaining podcast
Show Notes Chapter Markers

There's a famous quote about Dutch politics which says: "if  Dutch politics ever gets interesting then something has gone terribly wrong."
This is nonsense. Dutch politics is fascinating. This time in the podcast I'm joined by historian and Dutch politics expert and insider Pieter Gerrit Kroeger.
We talk about what's hot now in Dutch politics, how the system works, what the Dutch stand for internationally and there's anecdotes to finish off.
