55 - Berlin's Charlie Hebdo vigil, How to be German, the country's easternmost city and Jürgen Todenhöfer

In our top story, Berlin’s top religious leaders staged a vigil for the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and politicians are considering new laws to catch would-be terrorists. But will these infringe on the public’s privacy? We speak to The Globe and Mail's Berlin correspondent Joanna Slater.

Do you want to know how to be German? Psychologist Sven Rudloff will be joining us each month - this time round, how one crime drama can trace the recent history of Germany and the impact it's had on the country’s culture!

We visit the country's city that is as far East as you can go. Find out why you will want to take a trip the the border town of Görlitz. And learn about a truly remarkable German reporter, Jürgen Todenhöfer, in our German of the Week segment.
