Podcast recommendation: Geschichten aus der Geschichte

Over the last months I’ve expanded my podcast library a bit. One of the “oddballs” in my normally quite tech-centric playlist is the German podcast “Geschichten aus der Geschichte” in which two historians, Daniel Meßner and Richard Hemmer, each week tell one another a story about a historical person or event.

They are now at more than 280 episodes and just recently covered, for instance, the fake Spanish (because British) dancer Lola Montez or the attempted coup in Spain in 1981.

If you know German, this one is well worth your time! Since each episode only takes between 40 and 60 minutes it’s also a manageable time-investment 🙃
