Behind the Scenes of Millennial History
Host Andrea Voets speaks with Mick ter Reehorst from Are We Europe about the making of the show. How did Voets and composer Luke Deane create these episodes, with hundreds of layers of words & music? Why did she want to turn the hidden perspectives of the underdogs of history into musical journalism? How was she changed by the stories of the millennials? And most importantly: why should we care?
Change and Unification - Part 2
Inga, Winnie, Burkhard and Henning take us to the 90s: a decade of Change and Unification of East and West into the Germany we know today. They recall how a new, capitalistic system was implemented into the hearts and minds of the former citizens of the GDR: with great force and speed.Free-floating years full of unknown dangers, in which these Children of the Change learnt to hide and adapt. In a deep analysis of what it means to create history, they reclaim their voices: word by word. In the process, they offer us mindfulness-lessons for modern life & show us how dealing with sudden shifts in ideology & power can support every millennial in the changes that lie ahead.

Change and Unification - Part 1
Inga, Winnie, Henning & Burkhard were born in East-Germany, in the former GDR. They paint the picture of their youths in a country that no longer exists, the social principles of that society, the massive protests in the Autumn of 1989 and the complex feelings towards the fall of the Berlin wall. Did this day really mark the end of German history? With a special role for: bananas.Part 1 of 2Produced with Are We Europe.
The Troubles - Part 2
Agnes, Michael & Chris make us feel what it means to live in a country, divided by identity politics in every aspect of daily life. In response, they show us how to move forward from a place of trouble. With courage & guided by strong principles, but always: with lots of care for the people around you.Part 2 of 2.Produced with Are We Europe.
The Troubles - Part 1
Chris, Agnes and Michael grew up during the final years of the Troubles: the long and messy conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Northern-Ireland. They help us understand the basics of colonialism -back then and now- and make us part of the sense of danger that colored their early years. In return, we are rewarded with a warm sense of community & a real intensity that comes to life, when everything is at stake.Part 1 of 2.Produced with Are We Europe
