From Brussels and around the Continent — the top European politics podcast.


Ep 133, presented by Gilead: Europe's Iran reaction — 2020 EU resolutions — New AIDS epidemic

The podcast welcomes the New Year with a spirited discussion about Europe's response to the U.S. assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. Will the EU, France or the U.K. emerge as the power broker between Washington and Tehran or are Europe and its leaders mere bystanders?

The podcast crew members — Andrew Gray in Brussels, Rym Momtaz in Paris, Matthew Karnitschnig in Berlin and Annabelle Dickson in London — also reveal the issues they expect to dominate the political agenda in 2020, and offer a few New Year's resolutions.

POLITICO health reporters Sarah Wheaton and Carmen Paun bring us a special deep-dive investigation into the modern face of a disease that transformed the world and changed the most intimate aspects of our lives. The New AIDS Epidemic is a POLITICO series looking at how the challenges for people living with HIV and AIDS and for medical professionals have mutated since the disease emerged.

In this episode, we hear the story of Luís Mendão, 61, who was diagnosed 23 years ago with full-blown AIDS. He now faces a challenge that once would have seemed an unthinkable luxury: growing old with HIV. You can read about his story here:
