Should Berlin's international residents feel responsible for the eviction of a Turkish family in Kreuzberg? We talk about what the city's foreign residents should be doing to mitigate the impact of their presence. Our new reporter Andrew visited a demonstration against the eviction and collected interviews from people on the street. We also talk about a petition to prevent development on Tempelhof airfield, which is being eyed off as prize real estate. Then there's the sad story of a bottle collector who jumped onto the S-Bahn tracks to collect a flasche - he should have used the Pfandgeben website instead: www.pfandgeben.de. There's music tonight from Joel's band Skiing: www.skiing.bandcamp.com. Radio Spaetkauf is the Berlin podcast, a fortnightly conversation about local politics, architecture, public transport and culture. More info at www.radiospaetkauf.com.
