In our second installment of the Brews and News winter tour we recorded at the Vagabund Brewery in Wedding from Kesselhaus. 1,500 fish died after the giant fish tank in the Radisson Blu exploded out into the street next to Alexanderplatz. We talk through an interesting transport proposal from Green Senator Bettina Jarasch to let bicycles park in car spaces, and another by the Berlin government to ease up immigration laws that could have huge consequences for listeners wanting to become Germans. And we share our best Christmas tips and tricks for those spending the holidays in Berlin. Happy first day of Hanukkah one and all.
We check in with pal of the show
Ryan Plocher, active with the GEW union, who came on to let us know about the most
recent teacher’s strike in Berlin.
And Yvonne von Langsdorff came on to tell us about how she (and her
neighbors) hatched a plan to snatch back the sale of her house from
an investor - by buying it but not owning it themselves.
