Germans went to the polls recently and, somewhat astonishingly, elected a rather large number of fascists in the process. Nicht so gut.

We talk to Kenneth Richter, an actual German, to find out what it all  means and ask whether Germany and Mrs Merkel are the green heroes they’re made out to be.

Also this week, animals losing their shit. Specifically: otters, rats and hornets.
