In cooperation with American and German radio producers and broadcasters the Goethe-Institut USA produces roughly 50 radio features for a program titled The Big Pond. A US-German Listening Series. Features are being broadcasted nation-wide on a weekly basis. All are available for free download in podcast format.
In this episode: In the historic city of Magdeburg, Germany, there is a Johnny Cash-themed country music festival called Nashville Days complete with corn dogs and cowboy hats. This is one of the fruits of the sister city relationship between Nashville and Magdeburg. Producer Jakob Lewis, a Nashville citizen, goes to Magdeburg to see where the rubber meets the road for sister cities’ idealistic vision to “promote peace one individual, one community at a time”.
