Hear Swiss stories for the world on The Swiss Connection podcast

Published on 06/07/2021

Is it OK for kids to harvest the cocoa in Swiss chocolate? What does the soil of Switzerland sound like? Why aren’t there more electric cars on Swiss roads? What’s it like to be a Swiss expat in America? 

Find the answers to these and other questions on The Swiss Connection, our podcast that brings Swiss stories to the world with host Susan Misicka.

In the latest episode we introduce our sister podcast, Inside Geneva. Nuclear weapons were banned by international treaty at the start of 2021. But the treaty doesn’t apply to any of the nuclear powers, since none of them signed it. So are nukes really banned? Inside Geneva host Imogen Foulkes talks to Cordula Droege, Chief Legal Officer of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Beatrice Fihn of the International Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons, and Elaine Whyte Gomez, the ambassador from Costa Rica, who steered the treaty through the United Nations.
