The Italian journalist and travel writer Giovanni Vale is used to writing tourist guidebooks, but usually they're for countries that still exist. We rang him up to ask why he's turned his attention to 'extinguished' countries, starting with the Venetian Republic which sprawled across the Mediterranean for more than a millennium. Also this week: Polish punk and Europe's organic revolution.
Giovanni's guide to the Venetian Republic is available for pre-order here: https://bit.ly/2zB1Rar

Fed up with all the Trumpy news from the USA or the Brexit-y news from Britain? Well you’ve come to the right place. Each week we trawl the continent of Europe for the most interesting stories to cover and the most fascinating people to interview. This semi-serious, semi-silly, Brexit-free show, from a reporter in Paris and an opera singer in Amsterdam, will make you seem clever to friends and make you feel like you’ve got two NEW friends in Katy and Dominic.
You probably didn’t realise you needed a European podcast in your life, but this will fill the gap that you didn’t even know was there.
