Our podcast this week looks at why Jamaica is all the rage in Germany, why Sweden is deporting its most talented workers, and why the F-word is all the rage in France.

In our weekly look at news across Europe, we discuss Germany's problematic coalition negotiations and what they mean for Angela Merkel. There are also contributions from Catherine Edwards in Sweden and Ben McPartland tells us about the French obsession with a very naughty word.

With James Savage, Emma Löfgren, Ben McPartland, Catherine Edwards and Jörg Luyken.
