LeipGlo launches bi-monthly podcast

in Culture / Entertainment by

I’m excited to announce the pilot episode of our podcast is ready, and right here. Please listen to it and tell us what you think. We hope to make it work as a bi-monthly program.

LeipGlo political columnist Rachael Clugston is our producer and host, and her co-host is music columnist Kapuczino. They asked me for an interview to kick off the program, and I happily obliged.

We all had fun recording and chatting with each other in the studio, and I found the co-hosts to be entertaining as well as insightful.

Topics in this first regular podcast episode include expat life, what’s hot in the Leipzig scene, and a behind-the-scenes look into our most popular articles at the moment.

We aim to polish up the technical aspects of the podcast and also make it more varied as we go along. That’s why we need your feedback and story ideas.

Is there someone you think we should bring on the show? Do you think you should be on the show? If so, why? What would you like to see us cover?

The universe.
The universe.

As you probably know, though, we are based in Leipzig. If you want us to travel beyond a 50km radius to go check out a story, please provide us with adequate funding and/or a helicopter. In return, we would be glad to offer you a plain white T-shirt with our logo on it. Because less is more.

We’re wide open and eager to hear any suggestions and constructive critiques.


After all, we do this with our audience in mind first and foremost (or else we’d be a wee bit narcissistic, wouldn’t we). It’s important that you like us… I mean, the podcast.

Right now we’re looking to focus on the themes of (local) politics, entertainment and lifestyle. That covers a lot, I know, but if you have other ideas for themes, please send them our way as well.

Take us with you everywhere, because we’re small and mobile. Introduce us to your friends and your relatives.

You can get in touch via the comments section or at contact@leipglo.com. We’re also on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you think smoke signals or telepathy might also be effective, please don’t hesitate to give such methods a try. That would be pretty cool. It would certainly make for a good article or podcast episode.

An aspiring social scientist and former newspaper reporter, an avid eater, a pseudo-philosopher and poet, an occasion-propelled singer, a semi-professional socializer, a movie addict, a Brazilian-American nomad. In this space, she will share some of her experiences and (mis)adventures regarding various topics, but with special attention to travel, entertainment and lifestyle.


  1. You might probably heard about the huge problems the Saxon educational system is facing at the moment. The main focus is often on what the officials are planning and what the teachers want. But why not have a look at the students’ point of view? The students’ council at my school (Immanuel-Kant-Gymnasium) just launched a new offer to help each other with problems in some subjects which is from my perspective a result of lacking support by the educational system which was offered some years ago.
    So if you are interested just write an e-mail to schuelerrat@kantgym-leipzig.de

    Best regards
