Chat 14:45: Alice Teodorescu about Summer debut
That a political editor gets the honor of the summer talking in P1 is not common. But Alice Teodorescu has been the year’s most talked about political writer, not least because of turmoil when she took on the Göteborgs-Posten. It can, however, she is not into that.
