Podcast No. 33 – Dutch treats and nice beats

We have it, it’s here and it’s all yours: Podcast No. 33!

Be sure to watch DutchwomanTeddy Scholten who won the Eurovision in 1959 with a Dutch song called “Een beetje” (“A little bit”) and then listen to her sing it the same in French (“Un petit peu”) at the end of this podcast! The French host of the show has this to say about the song (roughly translated):

“In love we say ‘a bit, a lot, passionately, madly, not at all’ (the French version of “she/he loves me, she/he loves me not” with the daisy petals). In the Netherlands, they sensibly say ‘a bit’ “.
