    Talking Fussball - Dortmund book their tickets to London as Bayern keep swiping right but fail to match

    Talking Fussball - Dortmund book their tickets to London as Bayern keep swiping right but fail to match

    A new Bundesliga champion? Check. A German side in the UEFA Champions League final? Check. It's been a magical season for fans of German football...as long as you're not a fan of FC Bayern München. Matt, Nik and Terry recorded too early to chronicle the Rekordmeister's frustrating exit from the UCL, but did chat about their difficulties finding a new coach. They won't be the only club on that market this summer, though Union Berlin are likely to be shopping in a different part of the trainer store...

    Talking Fussball Aufstieg - St. Pauli hoping for a big payoff from the derby at HSV

    Talking Fussball Aufstieg - St. Pauli hoping for a big payoff from the derby at HSV

    Just three games left in the 2. Bundesliga season and precisely nothing has been decided thus far. FC St. Pauli have the inside track on promotion, but would be glad to seal their not-yet-assured promotion with a win away to their old rivals HSV. Nik and the gang (both Jasmine and Maik this time) weigh up the promotion race, watch the coaching carousel go by, and remark on the return of Max Kruse to the football pitch at the amateur level in Berlin.

    Talking Fussball - The Bundesliga's best make it big in Europe

    Talking Fussball - The Bundesliga's best make it big in Europe

    It is just us or can you feel a fresh wind blowing through the Bundesliga? Leverkusen's title win last week was restorative on the home front; this week FC Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund helped the league show out across Europe. Matt and Nik revel in the good vibes, as well as check in on the teams battling to beat the drop...and the one that isn't battling much at all!

    Talking Fussball Aufstieg - Kiel feeling themselves after leapfrogging St. Pauli for top spot

    Talking Fussball Aufstieg - Kiel feeling themselves after leapfrogging St. Pauli for top spot

    Unlike the top flight, where Bayer 04 Leverkusen ran away with the title (congrats, Werkself fans!), the race at the top of the 2. Bundesliga has taken a turn for the thrilling in recent weeks. Serial league leaders FC St. Pauli have had a wobble, and Holstein Kiel (and increasingly Fortuna Düsseldorf) have been ready to take advantage. Nik and Jasmine talk through the permutations involved in the last five match days, check in on the races at the bottom of the division and the top of the 3. Liga, and much more.

    Talking Fussball - Leverkusen all but crowned champions after another Bayern blackout

    Talking Fussball - Leverkusen all but crowned champions after another Bayern blackout

    We were trying to play it cool for a while, but that no longer seems necessary. Bayer 04 Leverkusen are going to win the league, and after FC Bayern München lost in Heidenheim(!), they might well do it next week. Matt and Nik let that reality sink in over the course of the podcast, discussing how Bayer's season stacks up in history, where Bayern goes from here, and what way the three-team relegation death match at the bottom of the table is likely to go.

Great podcast

Always keeps me up to date on the goings on in Bundesliga and lower leagues. Often with topics I can’t find in online English media.

One of My Favorite Bundesliga Shows

Great show! Always excited to listen to them. Especially their Aufstieg edition! Always great to hear about the often forgotten side where 2 teams come up every year. Love the show!

The only English language BL podcast you need

This is the best podcast with the least, hot takes, and most equitable distribution of coverage. Other bundesliga podcast are really just Bayern podcasts with 10 minutes or so devoted to the rest of the league and maybe an extra 5 for Leipzig and Dortmund. If you care about the league and/or want to learn more about it as a whole with special episodes dedicated to individual clubs, their histories and current states, this is the one for you.
