For this episode, Annette and Mathieu received Thomas Erdbrink. For years he has been a correspondent in Iran, now he is back in Europe working as the first Bureau Chief Northern Europe for The New York Times. How does he see Europe? And how do Americans, see us? Moreover, how has Europe changed since Thomas moved to Iran in 2001? Finally, Thomas, Mathieu, and Anette talk about the influence of the 1990s – the time they grew up – on the new generations of political leaders.
