The Goethe-Institut USA (German Cultural Center), in cooperation and collaboration with American and German radio producers and broadcasters, will produce a series of 50 radio features: “The Big Pond. A US-German Listening Series”. We want to give voices from the USA and Germany a chance to tell their stories, making great radio and great audio. Germany and German culture is not the central aspect of the programming – each episode will only have a small connection to Germany – instead, our emphasis is on dialogue and interesting places, people, and things. 

The programs will be designed for broadcast nation-wide in the United States on a weekly basis. All features will be available for free download in podcast format.
