Europa heute - Deutschlandfunk

Europa ist nicht nur Brüssel, aber auch. "Europa heute" verbindet die europapolitische Berichterstattung mit dem Anspruch, einzuordnen und den europäischen Alltag in Reportagen zu illustrieren. Die Beiträge kommen aus den 28 Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union und aus all jenen Ländern, die zwar nicht zur EU, aber zu Europa gehören.


Vergesst Berlin! In Brüssel bei der EU werden die großen Räder der Politik gedreht. Aber von wem genau? Und in welche Richtung? Und mit welchen Hintergedanken?  "punktEU", der Europapolitik-Podcast des ARD-Studios in Brüssel, liefert Antworten, Analysen und Anekdoten. Für alle, die beim Thema EU nicht nur schimpfen, sondern mitreden wollen.

The Another Europe Podcast

Hosts Zoe Williams (The Guardian) and Luke Cooper (Anglia Ruskin University) are joined by guests with a left take on Brexit, Europe and more. Time to stake out a Remain territory that isn't captured by politicians all too synonymous with the status quo? We think so.


Steve - @guitarmoog - and Chris - @ottocrat - investigate cakeism: the philosophy of having your cake and eating it, as preached and practised by the British government in its approach to Brexit. Each week, we explore the latest developments as we head towards Brexit and spend time wading through the weeds from the perspective of two long-standing Brussels and UK government insiders. Our aim: to inform you, our listeners, about EU realities and so, hopefully, to equip you to spot lies and to thwart attempts to manipulate you. There may be swearing. We are regularly joined by guests and occasionally by special guest co-hosts.

A Diet of Brussels

Altinget: Parlamentet

Europa er vores kontinent – men hvad betyder det? Hvordan arbejder landene i EU sammen, hvorfor kommer de op at skændes, og hvad vil de med Europa? Hør om Unionen og om Danmarks rolle når Altinget hver uge åbner døren på klem til ”Parlamentet” – Altingets podcast om Europa. Vores vært er Thomas Lauritzen.

Europa i Flammer

EU er alt for vigtigt til at blive ignoreret fra dansk side. Det er de to duellanter i Radio24syvs ugentlige debatprogram om EU, Europa i Flammer, enige om. Men dermed hører enigheden op. For lytterne bliver det et forfriskende møde med Den Europæiske Union, når Jens Rohde (MEP for De Radikale) og Christel Schaldemose (MEP for Socialdemokratiet) giver hinanden kam til håret i den ugentlige debat om EU. En debat, som er det stik modsatte af ringbind, betænkninger og direktiver og præcist så spændende, underholdende og oplysende, som emnet fortjener at være.


Il podcast della sezione del Post che si occupa di cose europee. Un episodio al mese, più o meno, nei giorni successivi alle plenaria del Parlamento Europeo, con le storie più concrete e interessanti di cui si è discusso in quelle aule.
