Thick Board - The Podcast with Erik Marquardt

Thick board

I think podcasts are a good format for bringing politics closer to citizens, informing them about the issues I am working on and what everyday life is like in the European Parliament, why do parliamentary processes work the way they do and not the other way around, and why do they often work in a different way than you would imagine?


  • Development (Vice Chairman)
  • Civil liberties, justice and home affairs
