We are happy to present the first in a series of podcast collaborations with the Mädels with a Microphone, exploring different expat communities in Berlin.
The Mädels with a Microphone is a podcasting series by local journalists Tam Eastley and Jennifer Collins. Together, they strive to create informative and quirky long and short podcasts about the hidden side of Berlin. The podcasts are entirely self-produced using Audacity free software and little zoom recorders.
Suckers for community and sharing, the friends use Creative Commons music from SoundCloud and make all of their podcasts free to use and share. Additionally, they translate their own interviews, and are entirely self taught.
To date they have reached over 10,000 followers on SoundCloud and were awarded the coveted title of SoundClouder of the Day in June of 2012. Podcast topics include love, ghosts, protests, Weimar Berlin, Club Mate (which proved to be very popular), Spreepark, and the Rixdorf Christmas Market.
