What is going on in Austria!?!?!? - with Johanna Bartz
Show Notes

In this episode Andrew and special guest Johanna Bartz go through the events of 14 August 2021 at the 100 Jahre Burgenland festival in Austria where the singer Alexander Köck spoke out on behalf of members of the orchestra playing that night over their meager fee of 30 EUR per night (plus travel and catering ;). Köck was confronted in public by the artistic director and M.C. of the evening Alfons Haider, which is when sh*t really hits the fan. Let's get into it.
