In the run-up to the Dutch Parliamentary Elections of 17 March 2021, two political nerds armed with nothing but their microphones guide you through everything you need to know about the politics that make the Netherlands tick.

    #12 Political No Man's Land

    Over the past weeks, the political crisis in the Netherlands has continued to get worse, and the ongoing storm of new incidents is making the path to forming a new government increasingly difficult. On this Poldercast, we take stock of the story so far, and try to look for ways out of this political no man’s land.

    #11 Dualism

    #11 Dualism

    After the negotiations to form a new government collapsed before they properly began, discussion mainly revolved around Mark Rutte and his future as the leader of the country. But the leaked memo also ignited a much broader debate on the relationship between parliament and government, and the extent to which the opposition can play its role as a check on the coalition. So on this week’s Poldercast, we take a break from those in government to look at those meant to control it, as we discuss dualism in Dutch Politics.

    #10 Pieter Omtzigt, Position Elsewhere

    Pieter Omtzigt, Position Elsewhere. These four words, noted down in a leaked confidential memo, may very well bring an end to the political career of prime minister Mark Rutte. A relatively minor incident escalated and led the newly elected parliament to launch an attack on the norms and procedures of coalition-building and on the conduct of Mark Rutte himself. As the country picks up the pieces, The Poldercast examines how a straight-forward election instead turned into a debate on political culture in the Netherlands and a reckoning that may mean an end to Rutte’s decade in power.

sunflowersandwhatnot ,

Thank you!

I’ve really enjoyed this podcast. I am an international living in the Netherlands and I do follow Dutch news but this podcast gave me a more in-depth look / historical context which is often missing in day-to-day news, while being vital for having a better understanding of what is what and why.
