    17 - Willkommen in Pullman City (The Indianthusiasm episode)

    17 - Willkommen in Pullman City (The Indianthusiasm episode)

    What's with the bizarre obsession that some Germans have with Indigenous people from North America? Every year, thousands of Germans gather to dress up and play "Indianer"—or at least their imagined, naive stereotype of what it's like to be a First Nations person—complete with appropriated powwow dances, regalia, and living in tipis. On this episode, Ted, Michelle, and Isaac go through some of the darker history of this phenomenon, and Ted and Isaac interview Drew Hayden Taylor, a Canadian writer from the Curve Lake First Nation. A few years ago, Drew made a documentary for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation called "Searching for Winnetou," in which he visits some of the "Indian hobbyist" communities in Germany to see firsthand what it's all about.

    There's also a great documentary from the New York Times called "Native Fantasy: Germany's Indian Heroes" that you can find on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcuyYUgFMd0

    UNLOCKED: Premium 1 - Lindy Talk (The Christian Lindner Episode)

    UNLOCKED: Premium 1 - Lindy Talk (The Christian Lindner Episode)

    To celebrate (???) the traffic light coalition agreement and Christian Lindner's ascension to Finance Minister, we're unlocking our first Patreon Premium episode, in which Ted and Michelle talk us through Lindner's rise to prominence.

    We also released an episode on Oct. 31 (15 - Zombie-Ideologien und das Inflationsmonster) in which Ted interviews Dominik Leusder from the London School of Economics and Dezernat Zukunft about what a Lindner-led Finance Ministry might look like (god help us all). Give it a listen, if you haven't already!

    It's also worth noting that the coalition agreement announced plans to repeal Section 219a of the Criminal Code, which prohibits doctors from advertising abortion services. To learn more about that, and other ways abortion remains criminalized in Germany, check out our most recent episode (16 - Weg mit §218!), in which Michelle inteviews Kate Cahoon of the Bündnis für sexuelle Selbstbestimmung and Stephanie Schlitt of Pro Familia.

    This episode's reading is courtesy of Politico: Christian Lindner - The Radical from their 2018 list of "the 28 people who are shaping, shaking and stirring Europe."

    To see some of the incredible Lindner photos mocked on this episode, check out the biography page on his website. You can find the oft-mentioned TV spot from 1997 about the young Lindner's ad business on YouTube.

    15 - Zombie-Ideologien und das Inflationsmonster (German economic policy w/ Dominik Leusder)

    Just in time for Halloween, an interview about the biggest boogeyman in Germany: inflation! Ted (@ted_knudsen) sits down with Dominik Leusder (@NewLeftEViews) of the London School of Economics and economic policy think-tank Dezernat Zukunft to talk about what the aftermath of last month's German elections means for German politics, economics, and the European Union. This episode ties together some ideas and themes discussed in previous Spaßbremse episodes about Hartz IV and the debt brake, so we'd recommend you listen to those if you haven't already for some background. 

    Before getting into the interview, Ted and Michelle (@shhellgames) can't help but do a short reading from a recent Deutsche Welle article about FDP leader Christian Lindner, who we discussed in greater detail on our first Patreon premium episode released last week.
