What’s it like being a history podcaster in Germany? Today we take a break from alchemy and celebrate the launch of the Secret Cabinet Podcast in English, and since I also do a podcast in German, we compare notes on the differences in German and English podcast scenes.
Der Buddler (German for “the digger”) works in the Martin Luther house in Wittenberg, and was a great help with the Faust episode, as well as being interviewed for the History of Germany podcast on Martin Luther’s 95 thesis (the actual details on how/when/where Luther attached the thesis to the church door) and the Bronze-Age Sky Disk of Nebra. He himself hosts the remarkable archeology podcast Angegraben (in German) and the original German version of the Secret Cabinet, Das Geheime Kabinett.
This interview will also be in German on the History of Germany Podcast.
