German Words Explained – Episode 100

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

To celebrate our 100th German Words Explained podcast, we have produced a special edition where we talk about how the podcast came about and our favourite – and less favourite – episodes.

As a special treat we have included some of the outtakes – the moments during the recording that did not go quite as planned.
