We're back! What's cooking, Europe? Apparently the whole continent. Greece has just suffered Europe's deadliest forest fires in a century, part of a spate of extreme weather all over the northern hemisphere. Just back from Athens, we ask incoming AFP science correspondent Patrick Galey (and his dog) whether this is the new normal. Follow @patrickgaley for the angriest climate tweets in town. Things have been heating up in Germany too, in the form of a huge debate over identity politics. Dicle Akar, a teacher at the Berlin International School, gives us her thoughts on Turkish identity in Germany and the row over football star Mesut Özil. Plus: how the summer's been going for Europe's biggest political egos, and the bright side of the forthcoming apocalypse. Send us your most beautiful/hideous pics of Europe for our elite Instagram contest! instagram.com/europeanspodcast / europeanspodcast@gmail.com Twitter.com/europeanspod | europeanspodcast.com
