This Week in Germany

This Week in Germany is a weekly podcast that brings the world to Germany and Germany to the world with stories from news, society and culture in the English language.


104 - Why do Germans watch dubbed movies?

Dubbing is something English native speakers are very unfamiliar with back home. Imagine Brad Pitt moves his mouth but completely different sounds come out - and in German. Olcan Hiller delves into the world of dubbing and speaks to the people that make it happen. Sadly, terrorism is once again at the top of the news agenda. Can Germany actually do anything to prevent terrorism on its home soil? In the wake of the Brussels bombings, Helena Humphrey analyses the German response. Wouter "Walrus" Bernhardt joins us again to talk about his favourite destination in the country: Berlin's trendy district of Kreuzberg. But it's not all hipsters and fixed-gear bikes... which local monument does Wouter describe as "megalomaniacal"? All that, plus news in brief featuring the Flying Spaghetti Monster)!
