With the French presidential election coming to a close this Sunday, our editors Joseph and Nathan sat down with DeFacto hosts Julian Lang and Ricardo Salas to discuss the result of the first round, uncertainties surrounding this weekend’s vote, and possible scenarios for the next 5 years in France.
We would like to salute Valentina Caracci, Julian Lang, and Ricardo Salas for their brilliant work setting up DeFacto, the Hertie School’s new radio podcast show. You can check out their previous episodes here.
