Jess Bauldry was the first Delano journalist to join Natasha Ehrmann for her new English-language radio show “Connecting” on Friday 18 September.
Aired on Fridays from 6pm, the opening segment gave the two a chance to discuss the big stories of the week.
As this week marked European Mobility Week, they discussed the shift towards sustainable transport in Luxembourg. With 682 private cars for every 1,000 residents, Luxembourg has the highest car ownership rate in Europe. But the types of cars being sold are shifting as the government drives a new strategy. Meanwhile, the Tour de Luxembourg, which was interrupted this week over traffic safety concerns, shone a light on driving habits in the country, prompting the two to refelct on the impact of the pandemic.
They then discussed the state of steel in the country, following last week’s announcement by ArcelorMittal that it would axe up to 15% of local jobs, an announcement that this week drew cynicism in some parts of the government.
And this week’s roll out of Disney+ in Luxembourg was brought in focus as was the general impact of VOD and the pandemic on local cinemas.
18-26 September: British and Irish Film Festival will screen 14 feature-length films from Britain and Ireland and some short films at Ciné Utopia, Cinémathèque and Kinepolis. 19 September A Bump Along the Way, I see You, Sulphur & White, on 20 September, The Keeper and The Tribe of Gods. And lots more.
