    9 - Die halbe Miete (Housing politics with Thomas McGath)

    If you live in Berlin or have visited the city in the past few months, you've undoubtedly seen the purple and yellow posters of the Deutsche Wohnen & Co. enteignen referendum campaign lining the streets of every Kiez. With the referendum vote coming up in less than two weeks (!!), Spaßbremse co-host Michelle (@shhellgames) sits down with campaign organizer Thomas McGath (@tamcgath) to discuss what expropriating private landlords could mean for Berlin. Ahead of the interview, Ted (@ted_knudsen) joins Michelle to give a bit of context about housing politics in Berlin. 

    Produced by Isaac Würmann (@wuermann). 

    To learn more about the campaign, check out this piece that Spaßbremse producer Isaac wrote for Slate back in May. This episode also references a report called "Who owns the city?" published by the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung earlier this year. Thomas himself also wrote an op-ed about housing politics in Berliner Zeitung.

    On election night (September 26th), we'll also be doing our first live show with fellow podcasters Corner Späti! Join us at Donau115 in Neukölln. We'll be there from 17:30 making fun of politicians and collectively groaning as the results roll in. For more info, check out the Facebook event page.

    What's with the Schuldenbremse and the Schwarze Null? Ted interviews Philippa Sigl-Glöckner (@PhilippaSigl), director of the economic policy think-tank Dezernat Zukunft, about German politicians' aversion to running deficits and how that affects people's lives in Germany and beyond. Following the interview, Ted (@ted_knudsen) and Michelle (@shhellgames) read a piece by Wolfgang Schäuble published earlier this year in the Financial Times so you don't have to. Produced by Isaac Würmann (@wuermann).
