On Wednesday night, Emmanuel Macron addressed the French people following the disappointing results in last week’s national elections. He spoke about the deep divisions in the country and how he hoped to heal them.

In this podcast Thomas Hubert, senior correspondent with The Currency, and Fergal Lenehan, an Irish academic based in Germany, discuss France, Germany and Ukraine's EU candidacy. Thomas reflects also on how Macron may have to reinvent himself after the election.
