›⃝ Our podcast Stories in Berlin is back with Season 3 in May 2021.
Stories in Berlin is a storytelling podcast that delves into the cobbled streets of Berlin and explores the city's history through anecdotes, personal tales, and experiences of Berliners, old and new.
Created by Christina Kyriazidi, the founder of the STORY FOR FOOD initiative, this podcast tours Berlin to audio-collect stories that otherwise would be lost.
-------- Season 3 is launched in May 2021 for a total of 14 episodes. In this season, Christina will read for you, chapter by chapter, one chapter per episode, her novel 𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝙱𝚎𝚛𝚕𝚒𝚗𝚎𝚛𝚜, a collection of semi-fictional stories about the life of Berliners during the corona pandemic.
All stories take place on the same night, in late November 2020, during a lockdown in Berlin. Every chapter tells the story of a different Berliner.

You will find Season 3 on iTunes, GooglePlay, SoundCloud, YouTube, Podbean.
