Join Damien McGuinness and his guests as they give you their take on events unfolding in Berlin.
The German government has been in office for 100 days, but nobody cares since Chancellor Merkel is butting heads with Bavarian conservative and Interior minister Seehofer over immigration politics. Damien McGuinness and Jeremy Cliffe are joined by Andrea Shalal and Max Koschyk to roll the dice on Angela Merkel's survival skills - and ponder the future of resident psychic hamster Billie.
Can soccer ease tensions between Moscow and the West? What does camp 1970s disco have to do with the German national squad? And why is Michaela's hamster eagerly awaiting this year's football World Cup in Russia? Damien McGuinness and Michaela Kuefner are joined by Vladimir Episov and Christian Trippe to chat animal oracles and sketchy soccer songs.
Inspired by the UK's "Prime Minister's Questions," the German Bundestag attempted to step up its debating game this week and directly questioned Chancellor Merkel for the first time in her 13 years in office.
