Production note about this audio from the uploader Kathleen Stephenson: I did not have a recorded CD of this program, so I compiled the audio for this program from the KBOO air check, which is collected in segments. This audio was originally in four segments, which I strung together without editing. The program has a slight break of a second or two of missing audio between the segments. At each of those points you might notice a slight disconnect in what the speaker is saying because a second or two of audio was not captured by our automated air check.

Die German Stunde

program date: 
Fri, 06/25/2010

How much do you really know about Germans?

Why is going naked on a beach or in a public park in Germany okay and why are there restrictions here? Is the going-naked-movement gaining strength in Oregon and could Germany serve as a model? How do Germans deal with nudity and is there a difference between baring it in the eastern part of Germany versus the west? Germany has fully developed single payer healthcare, so why does a German who worked in Portland and went back to Germany yearn to return here? And then there's the World Cup.

Danke fuer das Zuhoeren!
