As a heatwave hits the country, we dive into the muddy waters of European politics,
and ask the question what Europe will look like under the new french president. Will Emmanuel Macron be a refreshing force, or will the warm relationship between Germany and France cool down once the UK leaves the union?

Other topics: France is getting older and older, Paris wants to host the 2024 Summer Olympics, and Maud Descamps brings us a steaming hot So French word!

The French government would like to turn the exceptional measures of the state of emergency into regular law. We discuss the worrying implications of this bill with Marco Perolini, of Amnesty International.

This weekend, it’s election time again. This time, the French go to the polls to vote for their MP’s. It looks like it’s going to be a landslide victory for Wonder Boy Macron.

And Maud Descamps introduces us to Roland Garros.
