On this construction-themed episode, Joel, Maisie and Andrew discuss Berlin buildings of all kinds, from the much maligned GDR variety to the much-loathed Stadtschloss (City Palace). Most people oppose the new Stadschloss, so why is it being built? Andrew talks to a man who is preserving East German architecture by creating miniature cardboard cut-outs of plattenbau and iconic DDR buildings. Plus random anti-smoking legislation, Knut lives on in the courts, the joys of Tegel airport and why development on Tempelhof Field might not be such a bad thing. Music from Kool Thing and legendary GDR composer Reinhard Lakomy. Tune in to Reboot.fm 88.4 Berlin from 11pm to hear the show, or download the podcast.
