Thank you for keeping me connected!

Berlin has been my favorite city ever since studying abroad in 2016 and I’m so happy to finally have found a podcast that keeps me updated on the city - especially how Berlin and Germany is responding to the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you for keeping us in the loop - even the Berlin lovers from abroad!
