Everything you need to know about German politics if you don't quite care enough to read, but still feel persistently outraged. Also megacans.
Megan's Megacan, April 16, 2021 - Rent Cap Ruins
This week finally some justice for Berlin's oppressed landlords, as the constitutional court reins in the unfettered greed of tenants who won't give them their last fucking tin of beans. Meanwhile, two leaders bash the hell out of each other as conservative politicians prove once again how mature they are, and Merkel takes over the country while everyone's distracted by the shit show in her party. And: Does Jack Daniels really count as whisky? Consider the conundrum solved. Hurrah!
Megan's Megacan, April 2, 2021 - Jesus Is In The Cave
Another week, another week of vaccine chaos and COVID dread. Only this time it's Easter week, so at least there's chocolate animals. So many questions: Why didn't Megan get inoculated after all? Is German society ready to accept Syrian refugees in the Bundestag? And is Horst Seehofer ready to grow up? It's Johnnie Walker Red all round! Drink up!
Megan's Megacan, March 28, 2021 - We All Feel Stuck In A Canal
Another week of vaccine failure and lockdown fatigue? Not on this show! Not when there's a ship stuck in a canal. This week, the Megacanners veer off course thanks to the sudden gust of wind of more interesting and tangible news elsewhere. Konrad gets to talk about his cargo ship adventures, Megan gets to have a jab, Merkel does a u-turn, and we all get to appreciate Tempelhof Airport. Thanks for vodka, Fürst Uranov!
Megan's Megacan, March 20, 2021 - Honeybun the Golden Retriever (Super Election Year Special #1)
Germany's 2021 election orgy has started with some tender caressing for the Greens and the SPD. The CDU and the AfD, meanwhile, must search their blackened souls to find favour with voters. Then Megan and Konrad ask what happened to all those far-right extremists in the military - they've probably all been tracked down and sent to prison by now - Hurrah! Everything will be fine again now.
Megan's Megacan, March 12, 2021 - Maskengate
Some CDU politicians have got caught making extra money off the pandemic, prompting criticism from other CDU politicians who used to make extra money off arms companies. Meanwhile, it turns out that Julian Reichelt, AKA the tumor on the colon of the gutter press, is in fact a big bully. Time for some bourbon and coke - but press your thumbs for Megan's black belt in speaking German.
Megan's Megacan, March 6, 2021 - Lockdown Lockerung
Germany's many governments have come up with a five-point plan for the loosening of coronavirus rules. It means we can start having pedicures before heading to the garden centre to pick up those blooming crocus bulbs. But why is Germany so bad at vaccinating people? And how come the AfD won a day in court? And there's a chat about gin. Make it happen!
