Imagine Germany's news, but in English. And in a magazine format. On a podcast.
This Week in Germany (or TWIG as it is affectionately called) is a weekly blog and monthly podcast for anyone in the world with an interest in German culture, society and politics.
TWIG is written and presented each week by Daniel Winter.
Daniel is a TV journalist and business news anchor for DW News, who has lived and worked in Germany since 2007. He's previously worked at other German public TV stations, starting out with an internship at SWR in Stuttgart, then as a production assistant for MDR Aktuell in Leipzig.
