In this episode of May 2020 we join historian Tim Verlaan on a walk through the Nieuwmarkt area. I ask him if a comparison can be made with other urban crises since the sixties and the situation we find ourselves in now. What would a city in decline look like and what kind of impact does that have on how we think? Almost a year later, Tim and I discuss what predictions came true. Listen to the podcast on Spotify.
