In De Balie Podcast duiken De Balie-redacteuren in het leven van een publiek persoon. Een gesprek over keuzes én afwegingen van een publiek gezicht.
What does it mean to have Europe as a home? How inclusive is Europe? In this hour host Tim Wagemakers and co-host Yoeri Albrecht talk with Seyran Ates, a German lawyer and Muslim feminist. We’ll talk with poet, spoken word artist and teacher Jacob Sam-La Rose, born in the UK, but with Guyanese roots. And we’ll talk with Betul Ellialtiogly, a photographer, graphic designer and architect from Turkey, who moved to the Netherlands in 2012. “This was supposed to be a love letter”, writes Jacob in one of his poems, “but it’s hard to love a place that could never take my true name in it’s mouth, a place I was born but always wondered whether I truly belonged.”
