Truly German – Episode 04 – 18th September 2009

Truly German is a new podcast that talks about the news in Germany.  Sometimes this will by national news, maybe political, but we will also be covering some local topics.

We want to have some fun at the same time, so part of the podcast is our Länderquiz – in which our contestant has to guess in which Bundesland three different news stories took place in.

This week we talk to Cathy Dobson – a British ex-pat living in Germany and  author of the book “Planet Germany”.
