"Let's start the our in one of germany's power cities frankfurt in an interview recorded just before the global pandemic lockdown typically berlin. Munich can steal the show at the german city of frankfurt shines on its own as a modern city that also offers a great look. Today's germany devastated in world war two bombings and rebuilt with a new design. Today it's a gleaming city of towering skyscrapers and powerful straddling the mine river and the mine river is find riverside park lined with museums and taverns that are popular for their apple. Wine to learn more. We're joined in our studio by two german guys. Caroliina marburg and barbara ship kofsky barbara and carolina. Thanks for joining us. Thank you having us. Currently know when people think frankfurt in germany. What do they think. What's the reputation of frankfurt. The reputation is of. I think in english it's referred to as banquet but we more often call it mine. Hatton mind being the river that runs through it and mine. Hatton the reference to manhattan so skyscrapers banks and all that which however implies a certain lack of soul and therefore a lot of germans like well frankford so it's it seems to be just bank money trade however if you actually get to know it. Compared to at first sight frankford is a love at second side because it is it has a lot of local. Beauty has a lot of local charm. But it's something you need to discover. Yeah and it does have a shiny skyline. It's a city of skyscrapers. I think mine. Hutton is a good name because in germany. There's nothing so close to new york as frankfurt and it's a beautiful sky and they take care of how it is assembled so even though it keeps growing it's nicely assembled. There's a pedestrian bridge across the mine. River the irony. The irony is energy and when you stand in the iron bridge. You've got these beautiful parks on both sides of the mine river and then you've got this skyline and it just feels like a kind of a german new york. It's actually the recommendation for some a night is to go to the other side of the mine river and sit down on the green get. Maybe a fish sooner and napa valley and then marvel at. That's gallon i you know. Most americans they go to to old stuff. I love to see modern skylines also. I like modern architecture. London is great for that and in germany. You wouldn't find that in munich that's for sure to find it in frankfurt and the the big skyscraper that's open for the tourist as i understand is the tower named after the river and it's fifty four floors tall six hundred and fifty feet up there and the terrace on top is just an amazing view at the city. Now barbara one. We're thinking about frankfurt. It also has obviously a lot of history. And i know there was a big struggle in the nineteenth century when germany was being united. There's a small states that spoke german and there was prussia and there was and those were of the leading contenders to be the force behind which germany was united but apart from prussia and bavaria. You had a bunch of little states than looked to frankfurt talk about frankfurt in eighteen. Forty eight and how that was part of this german unification while you have in frankfurt. The famous poet skier it used to be an actual protestant church and if somebody gets the german medal of honor. I'm gonna macos going to give that to that person. In that church it goes back to that assembly in eighteen forty eight. The first national assembly democrats were getting together and saying this is what we want. We don't want the monarchy. Let's be democratic country so it was sort of the home of the german Feeling for democracy rather than autocracy. Yeah you mentioned pulse church. i think. The englishman repulsed. And that's a museum for that today. Essentially can go and see paintings and etchings that period. Our german tour guides to frankfurt on travel.

Teaching Kids Kotlin
"So i teach at a german grammar school. We call it gymnasium. Something like in between high school and college and it propensity a level exams but it already starts in fifth grade with ten year old since we get all the way up until eighteen nineteen and if they have to repeat a class maybe twenty or twenty one but Yeah and actually start teaching informatics in the grade. But these are eleven olds eleven. Twelve old students But we don't program there we start with object orientation be yet. Transform objects like like real objects like A rectangle or a circle and get all the properties like radius feel color etcetera and let the children play with it in a premade. Let's let's call it an issue so and then in the seventh grade. They have the possibility to experience with the algorithms to little program called robot carro ended its primary primarily object. The robot carol which can be programmed with loops and with if clauses cetera. Do when you say was just for our listeners. Infamy actually because i know that you follow some different systems to other places. Seventh grade is what ages Seventh grade is like twelve thirteen twelve. Thirteen okay so at ten years you teach them object orientation. They started ten years in the fifth grade. And we start and the sixth grade with like eleven. Okay yeah well it's not stint. Yeah and i understand your astonishment because That's really a problem we face because we have so few teachers who can actually You can actually teach informatics in germany and bavaria in particular so that sometimes our biology or physics teacher have to have to do this and this is quite art because it's very abstract concept for people this young the this sometimes leads to confusion. I think there's like a million functional programmers out there listening to this. Why did you. Why did you start with object orientated. Like why are you teaching. Ten-year-old object argumentation. Yeah well it's it's really like morton less like a game they don't get anything about about your about encapsulation or principle of secrecy. They just manipulate objects to get a feel for it. Let's call it this way. And i think it's still valid because if you like if you take a look at matt's the reason i'm bringing this up is there. Is this the theory in that. If we were to teach people functional programming from gecko as opposed to know let's let's start with object oriented languages. Functional programming would become mainstream and everyone will be doing functional programming and everything would be wonderful and the question of course is. Is you know when you take a look at an object. You can compare it like you say to a rectangle you can compare it to A bowl that they're playing with right and you can say to them well. A bowl has a diameter and it and it has a color and things like that right and from there then you kind of introduced a whole behavior of the ball and things like that. Yeah you know. It's i guess with with functional programming. It's you can also obviously introduce the concept of an object and and the properties and everything that it holds but then you can tie that behavior to it. I guess. I don't know but yet still interesting that you're starting with object oriented programming. I think this was the base idea of the curriculum to just get them into something that they can more easily transfer it to the real world because they can see a ball. They can see you circle. Maybe this was the reason and they're all going to become java programmers. Anyway so
Reopening schools during the COVID-19 pandemic
"Now we have contributing correspondent. Gretchen Vogel she in two other science news staff Jennifer Cousin Franklin Megan. whalen worked on comprehensive story on reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic. Hi, Gretchen Hi, this is a very complicated story and tell you the truth. I'm a little frustrated because I. Just WanNa answers, but there are so many unanswered questions out there about current Ivars in children for example, how likely are kids to get an infection if they're exposed to an infected person? Do we have any numbers on that? The story was was fascinating, but also really frustrating to work on because we kept saying. Why are these answers so? There are no hard and fast answers, but there is accumulating evidence that kids newborns up to for purposes, eighteen are less likely to be It's not clear why that is, but it does seem likely that children are about one half to one third as likely as adults to catch the virus in the first place. That's not one hundred percent clear, but let's consistently showing. Showing up in a lot of data then once we get past that question of how likely is a kit? Get infected. We ask the next question. It's still open, which is if they do get exposed to infection and they acquire it. Do they actually get sick? That is also not a number that we know in part because there's so little testing of people who don't. Don't show any symptoms and to find out if somebody is infected, but not showing any symptoms, you have to test a whole lot of people for the trifecta of unknown. How likely is a kid to transmit this infection? So there is some evidence out there saying that even if they do get infected, they are somewhat less likely to share it to other people. That's correct. Correct. There were a couple of intriguing case studies early on I was a kid. In France, who was infected, a family friend was in a ski chalet with his family, and t caught the virus. He tested positive, but didn't yet. No, that between the time he was infected, and and the time he was tested. He attended ski school and Language School in his regular school. Officials, tracked down more than seventy of his contacts and none of them ended up being infected. Even two of his siblings were uninfected. All three siblings shared other viruses, some minor cold viruses. They all had it was that they had contact with each other, but the coronavirus did not pass from this child to anyone else. They could find so that's really intriguing, but it's only one case right right, so it's hard to extrapolate from that. What our story talks about are some newer data from France that are also intriguing in a little town north of Paris. There was pretty large outbreak in high school early February. Teachers happened to get infected way before anybody knew that the coronavirus was circulated in France and so two weeks between the second of February and the fourteenth February when the school went on winter break, the virus had a chance to spread a few weeks later, when researchers looked at how many people had antibodies to the virus, they found that thirty eight percent of pupils, forty-three percent of teachers and fifty nine percent of non teaching staff had been infected, the also looked however at elementary schools in the town and there they found three kids who based on when symptoms had started, and the fact that they also had antibodies to the coronavirus. They figured these three. Three kids probably had been infected by their family members, and then attended school, because they weren't very sick, but they were infected, and they checked with all of their close contacts, and it did not look like they had passed it on to anyone. So this is getting at the idea that there is a sliding scale that younger students might be less likely to carry INS spread versus older students in the high school years. Certainly babies seem to be least impacted and toddlers, and then elementary school kids, and then as you get past the age of ten or eleven, the risk of both acquiring and passing on the virus does seem to increase and high school. School kids seem to be fairly good at both acquiring and passing on the virus be not quite as good as adults, but there does seem to be an increasing risk of both catching and passing on the virus as you age, but that's great news right if that's true, that is really good news for safety of babies for the safety of preschools, and for the safety of elementary schools we have now are setup. We have the limited knowledge we have about their risks of getting sick or infecting others, and then we are talking about reopening schools as the end of summer approaches. What parents would administrators governments are trying to do is balance the risks to. To the health of children and staff against the risk of not having their kids in school, what kinds of things that have taken consideration on that other side of the equation? What our kids missing out on besides actual learning? If they don't go to school in the fall, such a balancing act, because schools are really really important for kids and for society as a whole right, they go to school first contacts, and for their emotional and social development, and then lots and lots of kids and the world get a fair amount of their food at school. Especially, the most vulnerable kids are really dependent on some of the food programs that are at schools. Also sadly, schools are place where some of the most vulnerable kids who might be subject to abuse at home where some of those signs are picked up, and where other adults in their lives can raise red flags and say hey. Maybe something's not right here, so there have been signs that child abuse cases have also been going up as kids have been staying away from school. There's a lot of pressure to reopen schools, but there's. There's not a lot of information about how to do that safely. But as part of your reporting on this year team did some pretty extensive research into how all these different programs that have reopened have fared he. You talk a little bit about what you looked at and what you're looking for. We did to a lot of research. We're intrigued because I live in Berlin and Jennifer lives in Philadelphia and Megan lives in Washington DC. DC Jennifer and I, both have elementary and middle school aged kids Jennifer's were at home. Mine started to go back to school with other kids in Germany at the beginning of May. This part time just a couple of days a week. My fifth grader for example went four days the whole week part time, and then was two weeks off, and then again went four days, and then was two weeks off. They were trying to keep. Keep class sizes super small so that if somebody did happen to be infected and attend school, they would only infect portion of their class. Not Everybody and they tried to keep the desks spaced far apart, so they were trying to keep as few in the classroom as possible so that they can keep a distance from each other. That was my experience in Germany and we wanted to know how other countries had approached the question. We looked at everywhere from South Africa to Benin to South Korea and Japan and Taiwan and lots of countries across Europe. Canada had opened some schools. Most schools in the US had stayed closed in part because summer vacation tends to happen a little earlier in the US, so we took a look at what had happened in those countries that had opened up to different degrees, for example the Netherlands started back with their elementary schools I and small classes, and only part time, but then they gradually as. As things went well, and they saw very few outbreaks in schools gradually opened more and more than we at the same time checked to see if overall rates of infection in the country had changed and in many places we found they hadn't. There's a big caveat there. Though most of these countries had fairly low rates at the time that they open schools, and they had the system place when an outbreak maybe happened to detected and to identify context and isolate them for the two weeks that you. You need to isolate people to make sure they're not going to pass that on. So what is a common practice? When a student has positive for coronavirus, some places would close the whole school. If one student was infected, other places would only isolate the people who had been in direct contact with the student, so their classmates with a subset of classmates that they had been attending within their small reduced size classes, and then that teacher, or any other teachers. We didn't see a big difference in. In end outcome race between those approaches. What did seem to make a big difference when you looked at all these different schools what seemed to make the most difference was close a small, so the kids could stay separate and wearing masks. Now there were different approaches in different places for example, most places in Germany made them optional, although some in some schools, everybody had masks on it and others only when you came in or were in the bathroom or in the hallways. Did you wear your mask? Israel was one interesting example where they did not try and reduce class sizes, so they went back to their fairly large classes thirty to forty kids. But they really did mandate masks for everybody, and that seemed to go k, until it got super, Super Hot, and then it was just impossible to ask people to wear masks all day, and so the health department and the Education Department said Okay Fine. Let's leave the masks away, but then about two weeks later they had a humongous outbreak in one high school, and some other smaller outbreaks in other places as well so it it. It suggestive that asks. There were making a difference when they couldn't do. The distancing that were happening in other places like Denmark where they they went to great lengths, and even held classes, churches, or outside, or whatever to keep kids as far apart as possible and as much fresh air between them as possible I'm in Indiana and I actually have my daughter in daycare right now because I'm in a county with st low levels. I am very nervous about it, and we keep our eye on the numbers. Because that's what I see as really important gauge for whether or not, it's safe to have my kid go to a situation with six other kids. Do you feel like that background level what your community spread like is important for what's happening at your school. Absolutely, Yes, that is a huge caveat that cannot emphasize enough that the background level of community spread needs to be at A. A low enough place that you can identify outbreaks when they happened in noticed them, and that you can take measures to try and slow them down I. Think if that situation then the harm to kids. Keeping schools close vastly outweighs the potential risk of opening schools right now. Schools are closed colleges or closed, but once the university kids come back, and all the schools are open. We might see a very different background that we need to take into consideration. And Be Flexible. If school need to close again, absolutely universities are such a different situation than high schools elementary schools I mean as we talked about the risk increasing with age, so I think that's going to be a real issue in the fall as universities try to open back up. What do you think are the main takeaways from your review of all these different openings in different countries and in different schools? It's still a little unsatisfying, yeah. Is operatives data are really of still released sparse and it super frustrating, because it's such an important question. It feels like we should have better answers, but we simply don't yet. I do think the main takeaway is is you have to be flexible if to recognize that you can't go back to pretending that the viruses and there or if you do you're GONNA end up with big outbreaks and you're. GonNa have to shut everything down again. Like happened in Israel. One other interesting takeaway that I found was that when we looked at the outbreaks that had been identified, it was frequently teachers who were more affected than kids often. Often it was hard to tell because there were very very few cases where people had really carefully done the tracing that they did in that town in France, but it looked at first glances, or maybe the teachers were spreading it to each other more than to and from the kids. I think that's something that's important to keep in mind as we move toward reopening, because teachers are better able. I think than kids to do the physical distancing. I think it's it's helpful to realize that. Maybe adults are the bigger risk factor than the kids I know. A lot of teachers are super worried about going back for good reason we know as parents and teachers. The kids are generally really good at spreading germs. Happens every single winter exactly and so when the middle of pandemic where people are dying, and then somebody says well. You have to go back and stand in a classroom with even half of the normal kids. In contact with these lovely little people who you really enjoy being with, but you also see his German accelerators All, day long is definitely giving a lot of teachers. Pause for good reason, but I think one of the things that we did see emerging as a pattern was the teachers maybe should be wary of each other more than they need to be wary of their of their students I do think also that reducing class sizes and finding some sort of creative hybrid solution where kids. Kids are in school part of the time, but then doing the distance learning also part of the time. I think that's GonNa to be unfortunately the way forward for now until we get things a little bit more under control. We've talked mostly about anecdotal findings, so far are their studies in schools that are taking a look at this and going to give us some good. Good answers. That's another thing that the story mentions. There are a couple of real studies that are starting in the UK there researchers who have started projects at several schools where anybody who wants can be tested both for antibodies and active virus, and so they're hoping to get a better picture of when somebody's infected. How far it spreads in a school and in Berlin and in. In the state, German state of Bavaria also very projects have started all right. Thank you so much, Gretchen thank you Gretchen.
Germany's Reopening Offers Hope for a Semblance of Normal
"Won all kind of plaudits for how they handled the pandemic. How is the reopening is going out smoothly. Yeah, it's not going too badly. You know, when Germany opened up more than a month ago, there were a lot of skeptics predicting second wave. That would spread through the country on that was supposed to happen by now. But so far that has not happened on a mass scale, though there have been small pockets of outbreaks that authorities have sort of managed to quell, But the summer vacation season has just started here, so we'll see what happens when more people are on the move, and we've caught you on a road trip are Germans planning? Much of the same are more Germans planning to stay home this year? Then they might have in years past. Well, yeah, This is typically the start of the annual tourism season in much of Europe and Germans typically head to the beaches of Spain, Greece, Italy and some to the United States. Obviously, the U. S is out of the question now, but Some German tourists are venturing back to these spots because they're open to anyone inside the you and more than a dozen other countries deemed safe by the year. But for the most part, Germans are sticking to their own country hotels and Airbnb is along Germany's Baltic coast are booked up as our getaways here in Bavaria. And other popular destinations. Germans air using this opportunity to sort of explore their own country in neighboring countries, But most are not going to far afield.
Coronavirus: Germany shuts down borders, halts public life
"We begin today's broker In Germany where people are being urged to stay at home because go with nineteen infection rates are rising. The country hasn't been as badly affected US off European power hoisted hoses like the UK France and Italy but there are fears that could change if lockdown measures lifted too quickly. Let's get more on this with on Rosenberg who is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy. Cigna M- Global an-and. Choice me on the line from the black forest in. South West and Germany good afternoon. How much has changed in? Germany changed since we spoke to you last week. Actually there's a lot of ambiguity about the fact if it has changed at all. There was a bit of noise yesterday because new data was released that showed that the infection rate has gone up somewhat marginally to one which is a measure that using here to see if it's going up or down and one or one point one is considered a dangerous state that could overwhelm the healthcare systems. But since the data was released yesterday there have been conflicting news coming out showing other numbers that actually show that it hasn't increased much. And that's just a normal fluctuations so all in all. I would say it has not changed dramatically yet so it is normal fluctuation when you look at those numbers until they they are not the same one all the time we see different reports. That's right that's how it seems at the moment however you have to keep in mind that the lockdown measures would just released a few days ago last week so in a way it takes at the minimum ten to fourteen days to see changes in infection rates because people have been stepping out more going more to shops etc. I would expect and a slight increase once the the numbers actually show the reality because just walking about over here at considered me say that there's much more activity on the streets. People are now going into shops more frequently. You even see kids playing with each other which they shouldn't be doing but you certainly see. That behavior has changed. Germans have been advised to stay at home as much as opposable is there. John's Berlin will still needs to rethink its next steps when it comes to easing restrictions. Yes there is a chance. I think that's not just the case in Germany. That said likely going to happen at one point throughout Europe. However the key thing about Jimmy's that these decisions are not taken on a on a national level for the most part Gemini is a Federal Country. Where with sixteen states where each state is pretty much responsible? For the lockdown measures it wants to implement and as a result you have very different measures and also some states. Favoring script lockdown measures over others for example. Bavaria has been on the forefront of very strict lockdown measures versus not invest fine which have been much Keno on prioritizing. The economy over health concerns. If you will so much disagreement. Has there been in Germany. Then over the speed in which. The lockdown measures should be east so over. There's an interesting shift in rhetoric occurring at the moment. Initially there was very strong support towards keeping the lockdown measures very strict. Everyone was in favor of that. I would say since the beginning of the week since the weekend that has been a clear shift in rhetoric towards the critics of lockdown measures becoming much vocal and everyone's starting to criticize the drastic measures and the impact on the economy arguing. That the deaths that we have currently seen do not justify the crippling of the economy. And we're hearing more and more prominent politicians make that point so even if you see an increase in infection rates. I think it's going to become politically more difficult for individual states and for for merckel overall to reimpose stricter lockdown measures simply because the the rhetoric and the discourse has moved on from where it was at the beginning Goodison. Could you tell us more about the situation? Merck finding herself in at the moment. So she has had an interesting few months obviously. She was a prior to the Kobe. Crisis in a very difficult spot with her party going through severe scandals and with the governing coalition being really close to collapse that was even talks about early elections. She has benefited tremendously from this crisis. Simply because this has happened across Europe by the way in times of crisis people want strong leaders. They do not want arguments between the opposition and ruling parties. So she has benefited from that. She has seen a surge in popularity whereas other parties especially the Greens and the IRA has seen quite a huge loss of popularity. And so she's been doing quite well but I do expect that we are now at the beginning of that popularity being eroded again and you can see that by the opposition voices becoming louder. Angela Merkel is due to discuss own thirsty as a matter of fact the next steps folded easing off lockdown restrictions with the state's premier's. What do you expect? We'll be destroyed them. Yeah so I don't think that. So many groundbreaking things are going to be decided. Some of the things. That aren't the agenda is to try and increase testing capacity further and also include new meshes in into that those testing results for example. They want to start to collect the people getting getting well again in in national figure something that they haven't been focusing so so much on they want to provide more financial support to 'em to care workers to healthcare workers. They want to increase a shorter works schemes. Germany has been quite helpful in providing salary support schemes for companies. They want to step that up and they're also going to increase the the ban on foreign travel. If you will so I think borders are going to remain closed for a little bit longer by the sounds of it Rosenberg. Thank you very much for joining us. Anna joins us from the black forest in southwest
"bavaria" Discussed on Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel
"Yeah I get it about the feeling left out. I really do I really do. I'm just wondering what I can do to bring him back at this point because it feels like you can continue to talk about how you know that you have at times. Shut him out my sense. Is that when you are somewhat insecure? You charge in fourth gear because that way if you go super fast you don't have to feel the fears. Doubts hesitations we just go force and when he feels insecure he becomes obstinate and apparently been because he made he is not in my face with his feelings and probably sometimes tend to forget them. I'm expecting him trying to send my feelings mirror if me can I say that? Give me love right. And because he never claims it and probably not the best lenient. Actually thank you for what you said. He's taking us. You know you're right because you always expect the same The same approach from the other person. So you probably would expect from me to share a little bit more feeling like you do in. I'm expecting from your that. You share a little bit more of love and passion with simple gesture as I do. Probably I'm thinking too stupid example but you know you not to have flour in the house. I'm figuring out alto by a lot of flour at the time when we are getting rid of them get the new one and so on but there are some moments where there is no exchange. You don't know probably what I definitely like. Like for you the flower so you are not even able to give me what I need or what I night because I'm not so good in explaining to you. There's also this side. I know only one thing you like getting from me. That is what is sex. You mean because you see stacks like an exchange for everything but can be Tenderness not necessarily a blow job. But even a say cadets our you know even is in the last week. I see the difference that I'm feeling every now and then unjust coming down in the kitchen where he worked to check. Check out what you're doing just to see you just to share one key. Sworn tenderness or anything. You never came up in the whole week. You had the most busy between through. I'm sure but you know often when I come down. There is not that exchange that we would expect from from what we say right now. I am very busy today. I Cook for you instead of doing something as I did that. And he said you don't appreciate appreciate but will have been better. If you will have make that call more I will have cook. And then even goes together. You eat busy your computer in front of your dish so it was a little bit strange sometimes. I don't know let's plan what make us up Maybe you did a great thing today to lunch but you did an avalanche with US heavy. 'cause we were between two. You're just five minute tweet and I prefer to anything we do. Besides you cooking to us eat you know what I mean would have been better if we would have shared those fifteen minutes of the launch. Absecon make it right. No there is. There is nothing wrong in your needs and the criticism. Yes but he's not he's not. I'm I'm just saying I would love to have lunch. Redo and I would prefer to cook instead of you if you have to spend us. Fifty million cooking for us is better that you make one call those fifteen minutes. Why I'm cooking. And then you dedicate the next fifteen minutes just to eat together. I not criticizing anything scared to ask you to again. See on things that you're doing right or the fact. I'm just cooking rent again. Wet Cigarette this moment was important if you've worked fast in missed this because you want to know if he cares and he just told you I would rather eat. Would you whatever than not be with you even if you cooked for me? He just gave it to you on a platter. But you only heard the piece of Would have been better if you can cooked. You didn't hear that what he meant with. That was because I would have wanted that time with you. I think that on some level you know that you acted in a way that was hurtful to him. And you scared that you're GONNA lose him because there's a part of you that thinks. I didn't act right but then when he actually does. Tend you how much she cares you so convinced. Now that he doesn't any more that you don't even hear it your assumptions interprets and become misconceptions. It's like you hear that which you want to hear even if it's what you fear hearing that you're not hearing what he's actually telling you and because he thinks of himself as or you think of him as the person who is not good at articulating feedings just articulated beautifully. And you've done it more than once. Actually near you just said I want to add rather be with you then and cook and then you said but you do so much already. That's than than you both say to the other and really appreciate what you do. I'm not so sure that nerve is gone but I think that the lovers have become invisible to the love. That is this while but the she just said. Oh my God that was the while effect anymore. The sometime as a couple and you will have tons of experiencing this. But I think you'll get to one role you stay in one role or one role to the other person. It's snake we lost off the side because I don't want to say we university knows but we probably lost of the side. The the change is that there were in our role in the last probably year or two or three years we are. We are not start. We are so deep connected or so deep into what was at the beginning. That was so strong and so huge that we didn't realize the changes. Something the way I imagining the beginning I but but I may be completely off but west is a situation in which you adored her up so I adore her right now as well come on was was a different situation or no she was. We were so young and you continue and want you to stop shaking your head. I adore you and you had shakes now. You had has no idea what he's actually feeling. But it is so on the defensive now it is so prepared not to get. It is so convinced that it becomes like a confirmation bias and my guess is you love to be adored. He adored you and he felt that he got this amazing woman that he never thought he could get like. He didn't think he would get the job in the fashion. That he didn't think he would get the house on the Florentine Hills and that he was blessed more than he ever thought he would have. And on some level wonders if it was just some fluke and it could vanish because it wasn't really the fruit of who he is. But more the luck of lights and when he's not there adoring you. You get very scared because in your idea it's like you are so special that just you being there should be just lengthy. No you're right but that's how it is and you always said let's be honest.

That he used it as the model for sleeping beauty's castle centerpiece of Disneyland and now the ubiquitous logo of Walt Disney pictures but if Disney known the real story of Nausea von Stein and it's fairy tale king an eccentric opera fan who was declared a madman before dying under mysterious circumstances says he might have chosen a different castle. Nausea von Stein.

He was raised in princely elegance in his father. Maximilian the seconds castle who Schwangau Schwangau. Where the young royal quote enjoyed dressing up and took pleasure in play acting? According to his mother Marie of Prussia from an early age Ludvig had a vivid imagination and flair for the dramatic how in Schwangau built in eighteen.

A legendary night of the holy grail. who travelled on a boat pulled by spawns when? Maximilian the second died suddenly in eighteen. Sixty four Ludvig then. Eighteen years old was thrust into power unprepared for any serious political leadership. One of the first things Ludwik did as king was to invite his musical idol vagner to come to Munich for an opera festival wagner was also obsessed with German medieval legends and an even written opera version of Balloon Greene story in eighteen fifty wagner who was in dire financial straits eagerly accepted ludvig said vegetation and the young king became one of the composers chief patrons when they met Wagner. Didn't know what to make of the other worldly ludvig Wagner Wagner wrote. Today I was brought to him. He's unfortunately so beautiful. In Wise soulful and lordly that fear his life must fade away like a divine dream in this this base world. You cannot imagine the magic of his regard. If he remains alive it would be a great miracle. Wagner couldn't have predicted it but just two years later in eighteen sixty six Bavaria and Austria suffered a humiliating defeat to Prussia in the seven weeks war and Ludvig was stripped of all real power it was then historians believe that. Ludvig decided to retreat into a fantasy kingdom in the Alps dedicated to Wagner and alternate reality in which he could play out his operatic. Attic daydreams full of Christian Knights Magical. Swans ludvig already. Had the perfect location picked out a rocky promontory near his childhood castle with three hundred sixty degree views of Pristine Alpine Lakes lush valleys and towering peaks. He wrote a letter wagner describing his plans to build a far more ambitious ambitious version of his. Father's Sean Gal. Quote the location is one of the most beautiful to be found holy and unapproachable a worthy temple for for the divine friend who has brought salvation and true blessing to the world to bring his vision to life. ludvig enlisted a theatrical set designer and scene painter from Munich Nick named Christian young to make some appropriately dramatic drawings of the new home Schwangau as Ludwik called it. It was meant to be an idealized version of medieval castle. Missile inspired by visit to the legitimately Medieval Art Board Palace but cranked up to an eleven ludvig. Wanted two hundred well appointed rooms cavernous cavernous singers hall for Opera Performances Ornate Walled Gardens and even a nights bath akin to the ritual baths used by the knights of the Holy Grail. But rather even being a complete throwback the castle was to include the latest technological comforts including electric lighting flush toilets central heating and an electric buzzer system for summoning servants. Since the first stone of Ludvik Dream Castle was laid in eighteen sixty nine he'd written to Wagner that he hoped to move in in three years but construction was still still ongoing when Ludvig finally moved into the first completed section fifteen years later by that point the scale of the castle had been pared down significantly and the the project had taken on a distinctly coach feel looted a deeply pious Christian had begun to identify himself. More and more with the Arthurian Hero. Parsifal another night in the quest of the holy grail. In the castle a space originally planned as an audience room for receiving guests was turned into a high donned throne room without a throne instead.

He he slept during the day and wandered the castle at night it higher musicians and actors for private concerts and operas and during various snowy winters. Journey out for nighttime sleigh sleigh rides in an elaborate custom-made sleigh sometimes in medieval costume by eighteen. Eighty five the still unfinished castle had gone wildly over over budget and Ludvig had tried the patience of his foreign creditors when he couldn't repay his debts. The foreign banks seized the property and threatened to bankrupt the state of Bavaria. LUDVIG ministers largely to protect state assets accused the King of insanity and removed him from the Throne Ludvig had clearly shown some borderline align delusional behavior and his obsession with building his new Schwangau plus four other lavish personal palaces and homes was all consuming whether or not he. He had any mental disorder. That would be diagnosed by. Today's standards is still debated Ludwig's ultimate fate is also shrouded in mystery days after.

"bavaria" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves
"We'll take more of your calls. Danielle fatal in just a minute at eight seven seven three three three three seven four to five as we get ready to explore of Varia on travel with Rick Steves by email you can reach us at radio at Rick Steves Dot Dot Com and in just a bit wildlife photographer. Marty tells us about some of his favorite animals and reptiles that he's encountered in the wild Danila Beatles our guide to Munich and Bavaria Right now on travel with Rick Steves and Catherine's on the line from Decor Iowa at eight seven seven three three correct Catherine. What are your plans for southern Germany. I'm taking my sixteen year old grandson communicative area and that guy was one of the places that he would like to visit and so my question I too is there easy public transportation from Munich out tobacco and back and then how can I best prepare him for that experience. visiting concentration camps good questioned Daniele. You're a parent you want your teenager to get a respect for what happened. In the Holocaust that takes a little bit of thoughtfulness well I sixteen. I don't know what they have been taught at school maybe to find out already what he we know so far about well if he says he wants to go there. It's probably interesting to find out why he would sixteen wants to go there so he must know something about it. then if if I'm not wrong there is a show recently about the Holocaust but you didn't know we we made a TV show on interesting ashes people that would be a very good thing to watch beforehand Karen. If you find the Rick Steves show about Fascism and you can stream that on the Internet easily and then you have plenty of museums also dedicated to the Holocaust so probably would be a new docu center immune immune goal so yes for the Holocaust and you would see that before going out to doc. It's a very good good exhibit. right in Munich. What is important I find personally very important is to make sure that your son understands the rising of fascism and not just out of context Holocaust and it has happened in Germany so I think you have we. We should try to get it puts in the context and then to get to Dachau and Beck is very easy with public transportation it takes forty five minutes so you you should dedicate probably a day to this the whole subject theme Minimum Day also tours in hood offered by companies and it's the parental rental thing for a teenager. I can see what Danielle is trying to explain because as a tour guide I'm sure she's dealt with it and some kids can handle it other kids. You'd have to be careful about this. DACA is probably a good example of a concentration camp for teenagers more than some other camps but you would wanna be there with them mm-hmm and help curate what they're looking at because it's it's a powerful powerful experience and it's a valuable experience good for your teenager for having a curiosity about it and good good for you as a parent to help make that happen does that help. Catherine yes and I've seen on the show them and but I don't believe my grandson isn't has seen it so that's a good suggestion to make sure that he's he sees that before we go and Germany's doing a very good job of sharing the lessons from it's hard history for travelers these days much. It's better now than twenty years ago so as you travel around there's a lot you can see do i. I would say something fascinating is going to work discarding where there's another documentation nations center where people that you learn about it and then you can actually go up into Hitler's Eagle's nest and that's quite a fascinating experience without the graphic heartache of a concentration camp. Thanks for your call Katherine Amandus calling in from Concord in California Amanda. Thanks for your call. Hi Rick Hi Danielle. Thanks for taking my call. My husband and I are planning a trip and we're planning on bringing our six year old daughter so I was hoping for some recommendations of places in Munich and around.

Even the tram goes down to public transport it's the Bavaria Film Studios where the Never Ending Story was filmed in where they still food. who were you know the dog kind of fluffy one? It's there and there's also in the forest as some wildlife where they have years bore and all the animals and they explain about the forest animals in in Bavaria so that's nice.

You can see the People Surfing yes also. There's a river where there's a constant wave and people are surfing just like you know in in the ocean right on the river in Munich which is a lot of fun for kids to watch and it's not nature but it's certainly interesting the deutsches museum exactly and that's down at the river so kid oriented things a wonderful planetarium and and and that would be like going to the Smithsonian Institute but in Germany and then of course all the robot on all the year lose rights that are surrounding the Louis Rights to do so if you have a car in the hills of the Debit Yeah Amanda the Ski Lifts in the summer they still run but they don't take skiers.

That's going to be even bigger. More than seven million. People will then probably seven seven million of that's a lot of two weeks a lot of a lot of oxygen a lot of oxen on a spit. Yes a a lot of chicken. A lot of happiness call it. The fifth season in October. Pets is the fifth season of the year it overwhelms it takes over the city in a beautiful away just coincidentally because of my work. I've been in Munich two times for October fest in the last two years and both times when I went to octoberfest Daniela at occurred to meet. It's not really touristy. It's very local local people I mean tourists go there a lot but this is a chance for locals to celebrate their or clan their their friends their style. Each tent has a different personality. I think if you have the chance to go to the octoberfest on the weekend and also in the middle of the week then you see the two different worlds of October fest on the weekends. It's the tourists in there and if you go at lunchtime during the week that's wonderful. It's calm it's quiet. The weather generally is very beautiful still so beginning of October end of September. You have warm weather. You can sit outside and there it is common. The locals and people makes up and I noticed the security security is very good and injured in Europe. There's a lot of soft targets in Germany like France and and he has had to be careful of people that want to make a terrible event yeah and Germany is very good at not closing down but just making good security so the grounds would be controlled and there's one or two entries and exits in each of those you have police checking you and then I noticed beg check and so on and I think it feels it just feels wonderful inside and I'm so thankful they can still have big parties like that. Yes it is it is somebody told me the biggest risk is people fighting with a with a glass mug which was always which was always the biggest. I danger because some people when they get drunk. They're they're just crazy. Physical and these mugs are ounce a leader. It's a it's a liter of beer ear and when you are empty with that you've got it in your hand in your anger you can. I understood that it's like it's considered a a serious crime if you hit somebody with a Mug just because they have to. I'm very careful about that. They're even designed to the handle breaks easily. Yeah I talk about interesting things when you're sharing beer doctoral best so they want interesting still wanNA keep them up because at some point but it is dangerous so they have to design it so they handle breaks off if you hit somebody with it but they wanted to forbid one time was to stand on the bench is actually actually to dance which did not go through so you cannot smoke anymore into tents which you still they did not get through with not standing on the it was traditions in fact. I've got a photograph of my plate with the beautiful Sauerkraut and and so on and the pork knuckle with two big German boots right next to it because people were standing ending on my table and I was just thinking. Don't step on my crowd. Our crowd never step on tour guide. Dan Yellow fatal is giving us. That's a good taste of Bavarian culture today on travel with Rick Steves then yellow also lead small group Tours in Europe and Morocco and displays her beautiful photography work at had her own gallery in Avenue in France. Our phone number is eight seven seven three three seven four to five and Doug selling in from Bristol in Maine Doug. Thanks Spear Call Hi Rick and Danielle my wife and I are traveling to Europe for the first time and we're we get TAB TAB two days in Munich and obviously we're doing the research on what to see Munich and it seems like everything starts with Marian and plots and the Glock and Spiel but everybody then mentions you gotta go to the Hoffbrau House in that's the beer whole you need to see but here in Maine everybody wants to lobster and seafood in they want that quintessential seafood dinner and end phrases fine where the locals eat and that's where you're going to get the best seafood dinner at the restaurant that has the tour bus and so the Hudson how songs you know like fun but would you recommend like other beer halls in the area that maybe the Munich people actually have a beer at the end of a workday they were we could feel in meet some German people right all right doug. You know it's so important to see the hoffbrau speeds. It's historic. It's classic. It's got live music but remember. It's just a touristy thing. I really really enjoy the hoffer house actually for a lot of reasons. The history is there. It's too stretched in history but people have there's many beer halls and different people have their favorites Danielle. What would have different beer hall to consider a different one would be definitely and if you want to meet the locals and probably eighty percent of the locals agree on that the best Bayern Munich is to Gustin beer so augastine Augustina like the monks and so one beer garden is for example behind the train station can walk there from the train station Augustina via garden close to the train train station. You just have to ask people noise so there you have ever locals people from all over the place and then there are these gardens all over the city spread out in the different neighborhoods so if you who are adventurous and you get yourself a public transport pass and you go out and then applets is a good place w. e. n. e. r. Vena like Vietnam Edna written in German that you write it out and then you'll find it and then you go there. There's another Augustino Beer Garden and that is the one where I grew up flakes. Okay so Augustino. That's a very very good idea because it's great beer and Beer Gardens Nice evening. You're outside and you're going to experience this wonderful word that as a tour guide in Bavaria you always he's probably have to deal with Kate. Yes you'll feel that in the in the garden in the beer garden what is what is communicate communicate this phenomenon. We have I would say in Bavaria in the pre Alpine on the Alpine air is communicated coziness. You feel safe. it is if you're outside in a beer garden. Obviously this is not the case generally. It's a little bit too warm where it's community. because you are close together is a closeness cozy. It's sir you feel just comfortable and you time. Maybe there's no importance him. Every winter it would be shelly or somewhere in a hut in a mountain hut in somewhere so particular invade smaller space smaller areas so communities tied yes in the beer gardens with the music so that's probably something maybe maybe an in a small cafe or field he doug. Thanks for your question and enjoy your trip to Munich. Thank you one quick question. What's the Radler Rattler Radler a mix of sprites lemon sprite like you have it here. half sprite have lager beer and Radler is called a biker occur rod means spiker in Bavarian and so after that you easily ride with your bike through the city on the bike path didn't put that together rattlers for the bikers yeah. If you want to feel like you have a beer but you're not that interested in drinking cut it with your seven up and if a real beer drinker you don't order rod leads to sweet rhetoric and it's kind of the feminine drink to a lot of a lot of women will go for the radnor but the men will be insulting so that's like an English. There's publish and it's too. It's a Shandy handy but another good drink to know about is a apple surely absolutely apple all schol- as an apple apple means apple now so it's a mix of juice which generally are other sweet and we don't like things so sweet often and so we wanted refreshing and then you mix it up with bubbly water so so half half refreshing or insurer any any throw any choose mixed with a public water. I like Radler your woman. I'm a bike lake riding one he doug. Thanks for your call. uh-huh.

"It's getting to be Tober fast and a great time to be in Bavaria well explore Munich southern Germany next on travel with Rick Steves where at eight seven seven three seven four to five for six centuries. Bavaria was a distinct nation from the rest of what we now call Germany it had its own ruling family and its own favourite foods and culture culture from its capital Munich up into the Alps. Bavaria is a region that provides many Americans with the images picture when we think of old world Germany today nick is often called Germany's most livable city. I like that it's pedestrian-friendly historic core kind of makes the big city feel like an easy going Bavarian town. It's also where tour guide than yellow fatal was born and raised she joins us now on travel with Rick Steves to explore the highlights of Munich and Bavaria and they help us kickoff kickoff the October fest season with a look at what's unique about southern Germany Daniele del Carmen. Thank you for inviting me Rick Scott Gross Gut. There's a good example. You wouldn't say Truscott in Berlin. Would you know he wouldn't you would only say that. Chris got in Bavaria into southern areas particularly air. Maybe even over the border to titled. We'll tyrol in Austria Austria or in Bavaria. You would have that charming southern kind of dialect when we think Danielle of the dialect between the north and the south of Germany. That's the little sort of the little topping of a deep cultural difference between the north and the south. How would you as the Bavarian characterize the difference between somebody who lives in Prussia in the north and somebody who lives in Bavaria in the south so me coming from the South. That's probably a little bit subjective but I would say that in the South the language of ideas different language a little bit slower. We drop a couple syllables. Bulls were used the wrong articles and we don't mind that and everyone else minds it otherwise I would say probably people a little bit more relaxed than the idea of the German people take their time. They want to be outside. A Lot. People are Mubarak and when I say Baroque I mean it's always a little bit too much a little bit of too muchness whole Ed like oil the top. Yes we like to celebrate in the in Bavaria. Much I was going to say when you talked about your talion in the south and Bavaria and in Italy when somebody is over the top they're easy mo Maybe maybe the Bavarians a little bit you see see more often you hear even in Italy that people from New Orleans would say or Italians would say that Munich is the most northern Italian city that day is now that relates. It's also to the religion because the pope I think took good care of Bavaria because Bavaria was up sort of foothold of Catholicism in the land of the reformation and so the pope central extra dose of relics Tube Riveria to Munich so that they felt closer to Rome is very dense net of Abbey's Abe's we have Benedictine averaging particularly countryside in various so when you drive through the countryside the pre Alpine lands you have beautiful most of the time Baroque style counter reformation style. Abe's is simone is simone various. Does you see some church. Maybe the vs Kirk exactly Obama overall or go you know the onion domes the onion domes that you see all over the country sites that are very recognizable. I think that is typical for the Bavarian countryside and you would not see that in Hamburg no spire northern story Protestant spire and in Bavaria. You've got those elegant onion domes because also is that often think Germany is considered as being a Protestant country yeah because we connect or particularly in the United States maybe connect with Luther Luther and so we think Protestant. It's not southern Germany now. Everyone moves in so things generally in the south particularly in Bavaria. Varia people are Catholic. One of the most impressive relics I can think of is in Saint Peter's Church in Munich you walk into Saint Peter's Church just as you enter. There's this it's amazing jeweled skeleton. that was a gift from the Church you step into the church and he go whoa. This is not Martin Luther country. This is like Catholic Komo. It's it's way you have these baroque style on the ceilings to open ceilings with the Pastel colors and a lot of gold and richly decorated rated. Now you said on the dialect then you have some wrong. sounds like you're saying intentionally wrong is we're you know the standard. German the formal German his Hawk Deutsche Right. Yes and you can write in hall storage. Yes you probably have to write in high German. That's formal but you don't speak in like a Shakespearean Experien- actor exactly on the countryside so you mean what's an example. Can you give me a little a dialect to Berliner Hamburg. Let's say so we go to a restaurant yeah in dodge so in written German we would save again in festival. We used arresting go to we are going to the restaurant okay beginning restaurant and in Bavaria we would say McCain Gustov to begin an interest along so gear gang gang a person from another city would know Oh. This is a a bavarian. It would definitely whenever they have. I've traveled there with no notes from the person from the south somewhere or with the article for example it is we say the plate. The plate is Taylor right in the very thus Taylor. No you get the set mixed up. Yes totally. I didn't know you can do that. You can when you Bavarian because that's why I quit. Germany was because I couldn't remember if it was dared dior. Dust there is a male or female neutral pronoun and I was all stressed out about that but I could have just said hey hey. I'm very whatever you want you. Just celebrate that you have particular. You'll give you an exceptional. It's a declaration of independence. You know we're not been not berliner been kind berliner. I'm also a bill inner. Let's like that. I'm also besides that I'm Bavarian and I'm also villain okay so you've got your your independent spirit traveled. Steve's we're talking with Daniele Vidal and she's proud of ovarian. She's a guide who who gave to all over Germany and we're talking about the difference between Bavaria and the rest of our country when we're talking about this I almost think about how proud people from Texas are in the United United States and there's that sort of spirit that yes we can do it. We don't need to be told how to do it from New York or or California. Is there a little bit of that between Munich and Berlin Yep. I do feel I do think that there are some malaria as far as the perception and maybe also do consciousness between Bavarians and Texans in the way that there are similarities in the sense that its various rod a conservative Bundesland state religion place still quite important role then then Dr these islands Indus conservatism like I think in Texas too so the countryside is rather conservative very Catholic and then you have Munich for example as an island ray social democratic graddick government since Second World War so the state government of Bavarian could be very conservative and if the tourist goes to Munich they would think no this is liberal. What's going on well. It's that urban rural divide that we have here in the United States as well. The perception may be also from the outside what I experienced with the guests how Texans sends in Texas is perceived of course it's I mean they're wonderful people everywhere but it's the same thing that other Germans would see always with a little bit yeah uh-huh added today they are different and they want to be different to. We like like the lone star. Texas has Lonestar in Bavaria has the loan I do yeah. Ill make our rules. Do it your style now. When American thinks about Germany there's certain cliches but a lot a lot of times. Those German cliches are actually not German but very yes. What's an example well for example. I do believe that a lot of Americans think that all Germans humans eat pretzel or big the Big Pretzel yes or that everyone who is kind of in the folkloristic club has a lederhosen or whereas dwindle that in all the cities are may pull in when you're happy. Yodel and Yodel everyone and everyone plays the we say entered a music you say papa music the data and that's these are all things that are German but they are particularly are Bavarian and so you would never find anyone who eats a Schwann's huckster or pork walking Nakal in Hamburg. They hearing it's so funny because I'm just thinking of Hamburg because Hamburg is like close to Denmark and it's a long way from Rome. Yes and you don't have the dirndls. You don't have this lap-dancing. No you don't have the yodeling but the American would think all those things.
"bavaria" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves
"The castle. If I remember there's a funicular but I prefer to walk whenever I can on the other hand. We had a wonderful guide ride with us. Who would give us information that I wouldn't have gotten if I had done it completely on foot without any help so the whole experience was great. I love to take pictures so then I get away and try to find the quirky little things whether it's the lovelock's through the shoe's on the telephone wire or some other strange range states that I saw but all in all it was a great day. That's great well. Thanks choice for your for your call and your memories this is travel with Rick Steves or emails emails radio at Rick Steves. Dot Com and Jabe has emailed us from Titusville in Florida and JP rights. What are the taste treats of this region not to miss he. He says I remember the spicy grilled sausages and the seasonal fruits and vegetables are they're special tastes from your experience that we should plan on trying. Your plan is right in the middle of the country so really cut influences from all sides of Slovenia in Slovenia is small but it's very diverse so you get the sausages from the north and the the Sauerkraut Sauerkraut is actually excellent in Louisiana and on the market you have to try to for autumn winter times and then from the Hungarian influences from the East from the Atlantic coast wicket pastas center risotto's everywhere into Blanda. You will get all of that. It's all OK P ties excellent in Louisiana Ana but now this traditional blonde dishes are coming back to the city centre and one of them fried frog legs really if you're Louis Frog legs land not sleep right wow so when we talk about a cultural crossroads where Italian Germanic aw it's also the cuisine and also liberty was the green capital of Europe in two thousand sixteen so it's a lear in sustainability and climate change sensibilities allergies and so on what makes locally on a special from a green environmental point of view there was so many things were done in the bladder in the last last fifteen years. I mean according to the traffic regulation. We kicked out cars from the city centre. It's all bicycles Sustainability Green Energy in the city centre recycling product lots of trees. It's very green. Lots of parks and people love recreation. They all live with this project and also whatever was done into plan. It was done for the people who live there so not for the tourist tourists can enjoy it. Of course there are welcome but it was done on for us and I think it shows that's an interesting point because in Europe now there are many cities suffering from tourism that are just too popular and in Libya. You don't feel that you feel it is done for the people it is still down for the people I mean more people are coming but for now also I would say that there are so many little places to explore that we we don't experience the big line sent. You know that there is no rush to see one important. Thing is just you can disperse to different areas and just enjoy either side so cameron. You're an expert at knowing where the big sites are the marquee sites in these great cultural capitals and Liberals WanNa. There's not the marquee sites exactly exactly as Barbara was saying because there's not any big name sites. It's easy to spread out and everyone can kind of discover a corner all to themselves beautiful cobbled old town. This is travel with Rick Steves Steph's who've been talking with Cameron Hewitt and Barbara. Cope each about the lovable capital of Slovenia. We're out of time but just like one more little capper from each of you cameron when and you're going to be on a what's some experience or insight you'd like to share. We'll you know I'm not much of a shopper but it's one of my favorite places to just go shopping walking down the main streets and browsing and it is kind of up microcosm of this whole little country where you can get sea salt harvested from the seaside in Slovenia. You can get mountain scenes from the mountainsides It's just a very charming place. Were you can sample different aspects of the of country and Barbara. Lubiana is heading towards new products and our mayor. He was now reelected for the fourth time. It has this new ideas to improve our life to maybe make the develop planets are suitable for swimming.

Why Werner Herzog loves cat videos
"Today on studio. Three sixty what energizes the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog sometimes when I don't know how to order my thoughts, I switched on crazy cat videos and immediately. I'm rejuvenated. We talk a lot about cat videos, the art of narration and his latest movie meeting. Gorbachev. Plus from the first time you heard this song, it was just absolutely mind. Melting. The story behind when doves cry, which prints released prepare to feel old thirty five years ago this week. This is what it sounds like the head on studio. Three sixty right after this. This is scheduled for sixty I'm currently at I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial this first level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's vegetable, I'd like to have the roasted chicken very well done, editing is all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject must get sick of your place, right? Three, sixty with good Anderson. Werner Herzog has made more than sixty movies. They're often about man versus extreme forces, the Amazon jungle in FitzGerald. Oh, active volcanoes in the documentary into the inferno. His latest film meeting, Gorbachev also fits into that frame. It's the story of Mikhail. Gorbachev versus a crumbling political and economic system. Food consensus, Kevin over a six month period last year and the year before Hertzog went to Moscow and interview the very last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Sekkei bitch. I'm sermon. And the first term and that you probably met wanted to kill you. Hertzog and a co director Andre singer, combined interviews with lots of archival footage to tell the story of the one Soviet leader almost everybody in America, and the west light even adored, and the film is all held together by Herzog signature narration here. His home village is it looks today. It is hard to imagine that from such a godforsaken place in the middle of nowhere, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century emerged. And when Hertzog is here with me now to talk about meeting Gorbachev, sir. Welcome back to studio. Three six eight thank you. Thank you for having me. So you feel three long conversations with Gorbachev. How did you prepare for those mostly reading I did a lot of homework? I read compensates memoirs Rhoda most excellent biography by William helpmann. Otherwise, I arrived without pain, my hands. I didn't have a catalog of Chris that would rectal down. It was just a conversation from men to men carried on by curiosity. Wave. I was gonna lead me or us. Was unknown the film talks about how Gorbachev is beloved and considered a hero by many Germans, and obviously being a German, a west German at the time, you must have paid keen attention to the Soviet Union at that moment. Sure. And among other things when Germans reunification were somehow abandoned, give him up the real real big thing, about reunification, these it came without bloodshed. It came without violence. Gorbachev allowed peacefully his predecessors would send tanks in and, and suppress the liberation movements of countries like Hungary Poland is terminal. You just name, it chuckle Slovakia, take a Slovak, yo cyst that was attitude of the Soviet Ryan and Gorbachev completely different in his approach and is in west Germany had been separate countries. For essentially your entire life. It just must have seend being a forty odd year old man, having never known anything else impossible that this was never going to happen. Yes, I personally believed I would not see during my lifetime something of that magnitude would take much more time history would be slow, but I was surprised. And when the wall came down in Idi nine and reunification happens, as you say, in the film. So quickly crazily quickly. What was your feeling when I heard about the wall coming down? I was in the southern tip of South America, a mountain, and with five days delay through shortwave radio hurt that the won't had come down, and it's this kind of joy in the shadow of elation, his never left me, I was pleased, given the seriousness of the subject by the touches of humor in this film, like. When they're cutting down ceremonially cutting down the barbed wire between Austria, Hungary, and spend a long time showing this bit of the Austrian nightly news that night I'm going to play that clip. Busy plea for the entire world. I n curtain started to be lifted. However, Austrian evening news was curious about the magnitude of the event retail two minutes. I didn't really metric their lead story was about slugs. It's very funny because they advise you to fill up old with beer in slugs, as lovers of beer would crawl it get drunk and you could harvest them in the morning, then on the miscellaneous much later. So the anchorwoman comes to mention that I am curtain. Being lifted. So it points to that sometimes news completely clueless. In other news, the Cold War is over. Yes. Yes. Do you feel as though humor is, is central to your sensibility, as a filmmaker as a creator, I think this human almost all of my films, and I've been labelled as grim teutonic sort of God knows warrior who, who is determined to risk his life in all all this, all this kind of nonsense. So what you spot it is. There's a lot of human gover of, of course, a lot of human other films. I wanna talk more about your narration, and how you do it. Do you begin with some rough draft? Or do you make the film? I know I the Nori I write the take spontaneously during editing and I know here heft to explain something and I write it down. On incessantly and in the editing room. I have very professional microphone, and I speak the commentaries. Right, then and there while I'm proceeding and sometimes I notice the texts overlaps into the next scene. It's three seconds too long. So I would delete one or two words and rephrase it a little bit in speak again and it would fit. That's amazing. So literally, as you are cutting scenes together, you're coming up with the necessary narration, and recording simultaneous. Yes. Exactly. Is that what I do that extrordinary? Well, I realize it audiences like the way I narrate in not, it's not only my voice. It is a text the context that I create the observation said, I make. So I'm writing the commentaries, and I'm speaking them and ended makes a lot of sense and gives a coherence to films that they would otherwise not. What have? And in his someone there, directing you. You know, saying, hey Werner, let's let's do another take that. No with exception of the editor. He is the only one who would tell me the phrase, doesn't sound right? The grammar is a little bit crooked. Why don't you change? So earth of words, his says to me pronounciation of the word should be different in, in English. So I, I do have helped India seek advice. That's amazing. And also, I'm I'm struck by how demystifying you are of the process. There is nothing. Mysterious about filmmaking. It's just professional work period. Here is a great example of that work from your film, grizzly, man. One of my favorites. This is some of the last football shot by the subject, Timothy Treadwell, a grizzly bear enthusiast. It's a close up of one of his bears, and what haunts me is that in. All the faces of all the bears that trade will ever filmed, I discover no kinship now understanding no mercy. I see only the overwhelming indifference of nature. To me, there's no such thing as a secret world of the bears. And displaying stare speaks only of a half board interest in food, but for Timothy Treadwell despair was a friend, a savior. In a way in that makes film, different and unique I Esa filmmaker heaven ongoing argument with treadmill. Sometimes trade will say something very new agey into how fluffy these Baz I in to hug them, and you have to sing to them and, and here on of sudden night. Chime in say here. I differ with Treadwell in my opinion, wild nature is different. It's chaotic and in dangerous and murderous, not fluffy, like involved, his knee movies. So I just have an argument with him. You didn't always narrate your films, in fact, in your early films. There are other people doing their rations. I believe it was, the, the great ecstasy of would cover Steiner in the seventies that was your first first one. Here's a bit of that finished Pessoa Costa sheaf league in his. Emas. He even so what, what made you decide to start doing that? Forty five years ago. I didn't. Yes, I didn't decide it, it was the signature of TV series all the other films have filmmaker appear in the film and giving the chronically, so right? Not only my voice, head to be in a head to be physically onscreen, as well. I hated the beginning. And, and then I thought when the film was finished I should do at least voice myself I felt uncomfortable but I hit the feeling afterwards, that was something good about it. Steiner's Esther training spoon. Sponsored Fatu got. Wow, your voice was so much higher. You know how Americans feel now about Werner Herzog narrations do Germans here. You're germination think nothing special about that. No. Since I speak own mother tongue. It doesn't really stick out like a sore thumb and insurance, of course. Yes. You'll sense that my first language was Bavarian dialect. It's like let's say Texan, drawl, ereck ignites must come from Texas while he must come from Bavaria, right? The earliest one documentary of yours that I can find that you narrated in English was herdsmen of the sun, which is about a nomadic tribe in the Sahara. This is a clip in the Republic of new Shia. The voter behalf gathered for the annual celebration of care covari towards the end of the rainy season in the month of September tribal meetings are held all over the half desert. Now we hear that we go. Of course, Werner Herzog. That's what he does. But when you first started narrating thirty years ago, was there any pushback from US distributors country Lee say so that was very quick. Aknowledge -ment that audiences feel comfortable and they like the way I make things clear. He really understand what I'm saying. Although I speak with the Nexen with a heavy ex and not as heavy as, for example Kissinger, but that's true. That's true to audiences responded favorably. And that's always a good sign. Your voice is part of the attraction ES, India can tell that it's very easy to make satires and to imitate my voice, you see the internet is full of imposed us. Do you know there's a? Actor and writer Paul Tompkins who has done one. Do you know it, let me play a bit for you and see what you think this is him doing the character on Andy dailies podcast? Okay, if you don't mind I've just uploaded this review to yelp. This is the trader Joe's on hype urine.
"bavaria" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show
"I think is line is the Duke of Bavaria this. There's something to be said for this Christians are the ones who are dancing while they're being fed to lions Reich Rhys-Jones of the ones who are you know, we're we're talking about the prosperity gospel your best life. Now, the apostle say to Christ. We wanna follow you crazy. Really do. You know, what that means? He says to Peter you you're gonna follow me. And you're going to be crucified upside down. I think there's quite a lot to this. The argument for the American revolution. Is that? It was a conservative revolution that it was it was conserving things and recognizing nation that already existed that was separated. But I'm I'm quite empathetic to. I understand the point. He's making this. We're in scripture. He's getting to that point. Actually don't agree with him. I think that that what the Christian has to be a Christian in his time. He has to be a Christian. No matter what the moment is. And that may be the moment when you take up arms because it has to be done. And I think that I don't think that there's necessarily anything wrong with with Christians taking up arms in a great cost. Other slightly different point of view. Although I'm very sympathetic to your point of view mine is that I don't think that the purpose of Christianity is to be a great Christian. And in the gospel is the freedom to be wrong. God wields people who are wrong because those are the only people that he has to willed. And so I'm I'm not a fan of the Catholic church. I I don't hide it. And yet I recognize the mini great contributions of of the Catholic church to western civilization. Meiringen is that's a recommendation of God, not a recommendation of the Catholic church. And well, that's from my point of view, an extreme example. I would use the same example, even for things that we think are good or that we all collectively agreed good that we make the mistake of of of attributing kind of godliness things that we agree with only when the reality is that God is unfolding histories moving the action. So. Maybe it is the case on some theological level. The founders were mistaken in in pursuing the revolution. As I can granted that premise might be accurate. But it's neither here nor there because certainly what they did was bit by God for some of the greatest good that the world has known in the terms of the Bill in terms of the building of this nation. And when they face their creator, the fundamental question is not going to be. Did you get all the theology, right? Were all of your actions perfectly rooted in scripture was all of your logic, perfectly sound, no. The the question that we're going to I would say that we're gonna face when we stand before God is what did you do with me? What did you do with? God. Not what did you? Figure out guys sitting around waiting for us to figure it all. Here's the power. I'm happy to be. I don't really have to worry about all this stuff about like. Well, you know, leave it to the Princess get to rule and all this stuff. Now. I mean, we're celebrating a holiday right now. Actual regime. So none of this exists in Judaism, the basic standard of his constitutional monarchy by which it says in the Old Testament that the the.
German chancellor Angela Merkel will not seek re-election in 2021
"Germany's Angela Merkel has held her CD you party that she will not run for reelection as its chairwoman. It follows disappointing results in the country's regional elections will let's get the latest on this with Monaco's contributing editor Jessica bridges. Jessica thanks for coming in. Again. Was this expected? Did we did we think she would stand on given the results? I don't think it's unexpected. This has been something that's been discussed since the results following the national elections. And then giving the results in Bavaria last week her stepping down as chairwoman is not unexpected importantly, the she's not saying that she's stepping down as chancellor. No, she saying that she would like to keep the chancellorship. And that's an interesting thing to split the two because typically they've been related the governing the largest governing party has also held the chancellorship. So we'll have to see what happens with her role because let's keep in mind that she's an important voice on the world wide. Stage as a national
Germany, Greens and BMW discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"Searched, the carmakers offices or many of the big names affected by these Gators out in BMW are based in Bavaria the region which saw political upheaval this weekend. So has diesel gate had anything to do with a political mess? Various main politicians have found themselves in, let's begin with you Florence, you would immediately countered that wouldn't you say actually, no. You have experience of working in Germany, but the the Bavarian elections, we had a drop in the support for the ultra-conservative ceus. You have been in power for what seven decades, but the big big winner. With the greens? Yeah, I would say in Germany, that was always an even in Bavaria like a strong feeling for environment. I mean, well, before I would say in the rest of western Europe. So this is kind of a really uncle tradition in Germany. This movement, what's writes me more? Yes. It's the fact that the is is losing ground. Now, as you said, there'd been poorest in seventy years, so maybe it's time for a change in the end. And they are also in a way associated with the miracle and are very, very tolerant policy towards migrants, which made also the extreme right. We win grown. I mean, everybody's happy because the green still have more voices than they have. But definitely the also was one of the say winner of of this election, so I wouldn't personally linked to to the gate, and by the way it is gate has also had some kind of, let's say, a contradictory reserved for the German industry. You said it was a blow said it was bad for them, but in a way, forced them also to. To diversify and to, to develop more of for electric car to develop more other techniques than techniques depending on diesel so India. And I think the can't products the prophet of the crisis to renew themselves. So I think the industry German is still have a future would be happy to me saying that very surprised at least the next few years. I mean, given flaws has really good a very good point and it hasn't she. I mean, BMW the pioneers both high end of every day pretty much upmarket. Electric cars. Audi has just joined the the the, the Dale as well. This is something that has been perhaps that moment when diesel gate has constantly been a thorn in the side of German car manufacturing hasn't it. I mean, the fact that it has gone on day after day after day the last three years with new manufacturers being exposed, a new secrets being unveiled. I think it's something to do with the politics of German industry and the heritage from the reconstruction of the great boom of Greg grand coalition of earheart in the sixties. I respect Florence associates in the kind of people that she talks to probably the top end of the business. I have a nephew and niece who are very much involved in Germany's German industry and high tech, a new tack. My Minnie's Catharina who's banker was lost and was extracted as a sixteen year old should go to the Humboldt. She just finished Kim, dossier of when the wall came down, they are both and their friends, and she went to NC at the the great school at Fontham business go. They think the German approached business technology and industry is very old fashioned and these two and their friends say, why on earth did Merckel continue to bat on
