It's a German news podcast in English, because the German news is hard enough without it being all in German. Also involves canned cocktails. Not massive cans.

    Megan's Megacan, June 16, 2022 - Tight, Tighter, Tightest

    Megan's Megacan, June 16, 2022 - Tight, Tighter, Tightest

    Megan's in a superb mood as this week's show begins, so Konrad decides to try and explain Germany's antitrust laws, and why Robert Habeck thinks he can tighten them, because of Christian Lindner's petrol price fiasco. Long story. Then something else that needs tightening: gun control. As well as our grip on the news. Prost!

    Megan's Megacan, May 23, 2022 - Chatgroup Insurgents

    Megan's Megacan, May 23, 2022 - Chatgroup Insurgents

    What do AfD Bundestag members message each other about when they think no one's listening? Now we know, thanks to some awkward text leaks. Plus, another state election has happened out West, somewhat confusingly, and what do East Germans feel about Russia? Konrad reports back from Erfurt. Mahlzeit!

    Megan's Megacan, May 13, 2022 - The Neutrality Fetish

    Megan's Megacan, May 13, 2022 - The Neutrality Fetish

    New limited edition megas this week, after Schleswig-Holstein, AKA the sticky-up bit that's almost Denmark, went to the polls and delivered a blow to the AfD. Then Berlin cops failed to enforce neutrality on Victory Day, Giffey got a Gif-Ei (crap German pun), and why Berlin's Education Minister gives Megan the heebie-jeebies. Ahoy!

    Megan's Megacan, April 22, 2022 - Free The Weed!

    SPD fossils Steini, Siggi, and Scholz come to terms with their party's disastrous Russia policy, as nerves fray between Germany and Ukraine over arms supplies. Meanwhile, 4/20 protesters took to the streets of Berlin this week to ask why Germany has still not introduced humane drug policies. Gebt das Hanf frei!

    Megan's Megacan, April 9th, 2022 - No Shortage Of Rave Fuel

    While Ukraine fights for European democracy, Germany manages to distract itself for a week with some good old pandemic nonsense. The government gets embarrassed in the Bundestag, tries to figure out what to do if we run out of gas, and argues about speed limits. Meanwhile Boris Becker gets himself in a mess. Time for some rave fuel.

    Megan's Megacan, March 23, 2022 - The Attitude Adjuster

    War, refugees, pipelines, Nazis, Gerhard Schröder. Things just keep happening and people keep doing them, and Megan and Konrad are here to tell you about it, with the soft cushion of an attitude adjuster, AKA a Rum and Coke. What's all this about then?
