A 15-minute podcast written for the members of the Liberal Mayors Network, and any other interested listeners, Letter from Brussels brings first-hand information to liberal mayors from the highest level of the European Union. This information is relevant to their work as city leaders and will help them and their citizens connect with European decision-making, and contribute to strengthening the EU. It also gives a perspective on the city of Brussels itself, capital of Europe and of Belgium, and home to more than one million people, with a history going back centuries.
Letter from Brussels is written and narrated by Sean O’Curneen, Secretary General of Renew Europe CoR, a former journalist, and is partly inspired by BBC radio’s Letter from America by Alistair Cooke which ran from 1946 to 2004. The podcast is recorded in English; it will appear after every CoR plenary, at least five times a year.
