A year into the protest movement in Belarus, what are things like on the ground? This week we talk to the poet Hanna Komar about her own experience in detention, and the extraordinary “algorithm” of solidarity among women in the movement. We’re also talking about Russian gas, Norwegian oil, and the magnificence of Emma Raducanu.
You can read Hanna’s article, ‘Sisterhood behind bars’, here.

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.
