To mark Deutschlandjahr, Goethe-Institut Washington has partnered with KCRW Berlin, among other radio producers and broadcasters from the US and Germany, to bring you “The Big Pond.”
“The Big Pond” is a series of podcasts spanning topics such as music, sports, history, and more – bridging the gap across the Atlantic and underscoring what the two countries share. We are highlighting selected episodes of “The Big Pond,” airing one every Tuesday at 21:00, through November.
Produced by KCRW Berlin
“It was chaos, it was total chaos.” When the Berlin Wall unexpectedly fell in 1989, it triggered a time of massive flux for the newly reunited capital of Germany. Subcultures and international trends combined with other creative forces to establish Berlin as a mecca for artists. For The Big Pond, producers Monika Müller-Kroll, Sylvia Cunningham, and Nikki Motson speak to Berliners who helped build the city’s lasting legacy.
