In Mensen met M , Margriet van der Linden's four-part talk show that is broadcast daily on NPO1 in the week of Christmas, four duos will talk to each other and Van der Linden. Songfestival winner Duncan Laurence and the caliphate girl Laura H. are among the guests in the talk show special.

There are also duos formed by Deputy Prime Minister Carola Schouten and photographer Erwin Olaf, actress Halina Reijn and lawyer Inez Weski and politician Thierry Baudet and television critic Angela de Jong.

Van der Linden said he was looking forward to "talking to people who gave 2019 a face".

"For most people, the Christmas and New Year period is a time in which we visit each other and go through the year together. I also do that in People with M ," says the M presenter.

"Nitrogen crisis, Eurovision Song Contest, elections, showbiz riots, liquidations, Syrians, but how does the personal relate to these big and small events in our country and the rest of the world?"

People with M will be broadcast from Monday December 23 to Thursday December 26 at KRO-NCRV on NPO1. On Monday and Thursday at 11.15 p.m. and on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10.30 p.m.
