02 - Schumacher, Leipzig and the President’s Olympic boycott

Welcome to the second episode of This Week in Germany!

We've had a great response to the first episode, and we've collected plenty of new listeners in the short time of just one week. 

This week, Germany had a tough start to the new year, both politically and emotionally. 

This week: 

  • Formula 1 racing star Michael Schumacher's life-threatening injury he received while on a skiing trip;
  • Germany's limitation on Romanian and Bulgarian immigration comes to an end;
  • Joachim Gauck pledges to boycott the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia;
  • Frederick talks about Germany's 'B' things in "A-Z" and Roland explains why Leipzig is the hip place to be in Destination Germany.
