Episode 121: Opera from Afar and an Energiewende Examination

Good evening, listeners! We have a great episode for you this week as host Richard Aldous talks with author Barton Swaim about remotely viewing opera before speaking with TAI staff writer Jamie Horgan about Germany’ energiewende.

First, Barton Swaim discusses the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series of cinema presentations, drawing on his recent moving experience seeing Madama Butterfly with his daughter.

Then, Jamie Horgan takes a look under the hood of Germany’s remarkable—and costly—green energy transition, placing what Berlin has done over the past decade in perspective while examining the effects this energiewende has had on German power bills and central European grids.
