    057: The Currywurst

    057: The Currywurst

    The Currywurst. Or perhaps “curry-ketchup sausages” are as common in Germany as perhaps hamburgers in the States. It’s a beloved snack, and an after-party savior. Currywurst has an interesting post-war history, and even started from an American GI influence in Berlin (or Hamburg)—yet never made it back to the US. Except when you buy Heinz Curryketschup in a German Delikatessen.

    056: The Stone Bridge of Regensburg

    056: The Stone Bridge of Regensburg

    The stone bridge in Regensburg, built in 1135, has been through a lot. It's the oldest standing bridge in Germany and also spans some 300 meters. It's an heirloom of German history that even has its own lore around it. Swedes destroying one of its guard towers, Nazis blowing up a portion to stop American troops, medieval executions. Enough events and legends that it needed its own episode. Also, Regensburg is amazing.


    The "podcard"--as the kids are calling it--came from Klaudia Zotzmann-Koch. Author and podcaster extraordinaire, resident of Vienna, but from an area we recently covered (Episode 51), she gives us more insight into the area.

    055: Staufer (Hohenstaufen) I: Conrad III and the 2nd Crusade

    055: Staufer (Hohenstaufen) I: Conrad III and the 2nd Crusade

    The first monarch to start off the Staufer dynasty (often Hohenstaufen in English after their castle) is Conrad III. His reign is marked by difficulties and spends time practically to poor to leave Parma, starts his career as an anti-king, goes to Jerusalem as a pilgrim, and later as a crusader. And not even an Emperor is above Malaria.

    054: Medieval Medicine and Science: Hildegard of Bingen

    054: Medieval Medicine and Science: Hildegard of Bingen

    Saint Hildegard is one of only four women Doctors of the Church. A 12th century visionary and medical author, Hildegard is making a pretty big comeback in folk medicine (in German speaking countries). There's a lot more to her story, and she gives a rare insight into women's lives in the high medieval period.
