Die German Stunde — the first “German Hour” on KBOO

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.
