Hear Swiss stories for the world on The Swiss Connection podcast

Published on 02/03/2021

Why did Swiss women have to wait so long to vote? What’s it like to move back to – or away from – Switzerland during a pandemic? What does gold mined in Peru have to do with Switzerland?

Hear these stories and more on The Swiss Connection, our podcast that brings Swiss stories to the world with host Susan Misicka.

Our latest episode is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Switzerland. We talk to Regula Stämpfli, a political scientist and co-host of Die Podcastin – a German-language feminist podcast. We also hear from author Clare O’Dea, whose novel Voting Day tells the story of four women on the day Swiss men rejected women’s suffrage in 1959.
