While the rest of the world votes for crazy leaders and dumb ideas, Berlin’s new coalition has just announced an amazing social program that makes this city even better. On this special 5th anniversary recording of Radio Spaetkauf, we remind ourselves why we came to Berlin, and why we plan to stay.
There’s plenty to talk about in the new red-red-green (R2G) coalition agreement, including more social housing, less automobiles and better bicycle infrastructure, but sadly no maglev to the airport.
How will Berlin pay for it all? Our special guest Konrad Werner defends the government’s plan to take on more debt to upgrade schools and hire more public servants.
Also, we welcome Craig Schuftan, who together with his band Ducks! and musician Ray Mann created Radio Spaetkauf’s new jingle.
Radio Spaetkauf is hosted by Joel Dullroy, Maisie Hitchcock, Jöran Mandik and Daniel Stern.
