101 - 'Tis the Season for Christmas Markets

We're still called This Week in Germany (we have new content on our website every week!) but from now on, our podcast is set to be released monthly.

However that means we can put in more time to make each episode better!

In our December edition: We record on location at two Christmas markets to bring you the seasonal sights and sounds.

Journalist Helena Humphrey joins us in the studio to talk about Angela Merkel, who's been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Our resident film reviewer, Malachi Ray Rempen, is stepping out of his comfort zone to talk about a German TV series this month - Deutschland 83.

Plus we'll be introducing you to Olcan, who'll be handing the show over to YOU. He'll be investigating a new aspect of life in Germany every month. So get in touch if you have an assignment for him!

All that plus the rest of this month's news in brief!
