On this week's show we visit a radio show that's broadcast from behind one of the infamous prostitution windows in Amsterdam's Red Light District. We also find out the latest news from the hate speech trial of anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders.

We report on the exploitation of some Polish migrant workers and we hear why so many Dutch Roman Catholics are leaving the church.
Red Light Radio

Amsterdam's Red Light District is probably the most well known legal prostitution zone in the entire world. But in recent years the city has dialed back the number of prostitutes it allows to set up shop there, meaning some of the windows the hookers used to sit in are now being used for very different purposes.
Wilders back on trial

Controversial anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders is on trial accused of hate speech, inciting discrimination, and insulting Muslims as a group. The proceedings began last year, but were suspended after the defence successfully questioned the impartiality of the court. The judges were dismissed and new judges have now been put in their place. This week, the court case began again.
