Fantastic wrap-ups

Thanks for your concise breakdown of the latest and greatest. I love that you go into the nitty-gritty, e.g. regarding new Covid regulations. Still, you keep it short and to the point. The only thing I find myself cracking up about is the pronunciation of some German words.

A Needed Voice in Berlin

I've lived here since 2012 and have been always looking for a daily English news source and this is the closest I've ever felt to getting an NPR dose of daily news. Thanks Abby for your great research and consistent output. I really love this show! Would it be weird to suggest more crime reporting? I always feel so safe here but have the feeling that crimes are underreported...
