Lessons from a social media shitstorm (and an invitation!)

00:0000:00

Well, THAT was interesting. Last week we posted an episode that got a huge reaction and we're still trying to understand what it all means. This is just a short message to let you know what it was like to be on the receiving end of so much, um, attention and an invitation for anyone who wants to take part in the SEQUEL!

KrakCast News - Any trouble finding contraception?

00:0000:00

This week we start out with a discussion of access to contraception in Poland because apparently it's really hard to get. Or something. Then it's on to news about poor health habits and dying. On a much lighter note, there are lots of local news items this week related to getting around Krakow by tram and bus. We finish with a story about a bus driver who REALLY needed a drink. 

Why is it (almost) always a Polish girl with a foreign guy and (almost) never the reverse?

00:0000:00

Time to talk about something we've all noticed. Why does it seem like 90% of mixed-nationality relationships involve a Polish woman and a foreign guy? What's wrong with Polish guys? What's right with Polish girls? We demand answers! That's why we invited some people to the studio to talk about it and see if we could unlock this mystery.

00:0000:00
