Episode 08: Vanessa Ellingham

It’s the day before Vanessa Ellingham‘s birthday and the day after the 2017 German Federal Election. Immigration looms large for both: Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing party loses a substantial amount of votes over the issue, while Berlin-based, New Zealand-born Vanessa publishes the first issue of her migration magazine, Nansen.

Which just happens to be her precious object for this episode of Auspicious Plastic! But it’s not all politics, polls and publishing. Vanessa’s story takes an unexpected turn, guaranteed to melt the heart of even the most hardened political pundit.

Episode 08 released 30 September, 2017

Many thanks to Vanessa Ellingham!
