Wednesday 3 p.m. is a series of short stories — observations, brief memories, scenes from a life — recorded by writers in Berlin and around the world. Listen to two new stories each week. This Wednesday, we feature Susannah Edelbaum with “Dirndl” and Monika Müller-Kroll’s “Fridge.”

 

“Dirndl” by Susannah Edelbaum and “Fridge” by Monika Müller-Kroll

 

“The dirndl my partner’s grandmother is yipping me into is floor length and dark blue. The last torso it hugged was my mother-in-law’s on her wedding day in the late 1970’s…”

“Two little tubs of organic fruit flavored … I have beer and juice and milk… “

Susannah Edelbaum is a freelance writer in Berlin. Her work has appeared in Fast Company, The Cut, Modern Farmer, and on the former NPR Berlin, among other publications.

Monika Müller-Kroll is the producer of Wednesday 3 p.m. and no stranger to KCRW Berlin.
