Part 3 of our four-part series The New Germany with historian Katja Hoyer and journalist Oliver Moody. They are going to talk about German energy policy and, above all, Russian gas. How has Germany's rapacious appetite for energy been satiated over time? What now? How can environmental concerns and security needs be met given the ever-increasing need for reliable energy?

Guest: Helen Thompson, Political Economist, University of Cambridge

Russia's war on Ukraine has heralded a Zeitenwende, a historic turning point for Germany. But how and why has Germany changed since then – or why hasn’t it? With old certainties set ablaze by a new European war, are we witnessing the emergence of a new Germany?

In this special series, historian Katja Hoyer and journalist Oliver Moody set out to find some answers. They will be looking into Germany's past and present to see what the future may hold for Europe's largest democracy.

This series will be broadcast in July and August 2022 and is part of our History & Politics Podcast.
