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?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
