Who wants free money? A Berlin entrepreneur is giving away 1000 EUR a month to a worthy candidate to test the idea of the grundeinkommen, or basic citizens' income. We talk about whether the idea could work for everyone. Enjoying the lakes? Take care - six people have died while swimming around Berlin this month so far. The lakes are getting warmer, too, which isn't always a good thing. What to do about a lack of affordable housing? The SPD development minister thinks it can be solved by paying landlords to encourage them to take more social tenants. More money for the rich, to help the poor? Lost some snakes? The police at Ostkreuz are searching for the owners of two snakes, found in a bag at the S-Bahn station. Music from Sydney Valette, Lawrence Arabia and Tusk.
