057: The Currywurst

The Currywurst. Or perhaps “curry-ketchup sausages” are as common in Germany as perhaps hamburgers in the States. It’s a beloved snack, and an after-party savior. Currywurst has an interesting post-war history, and even started from an American GI influence in Berlin (or Hamburg)—yet never made it back to the US. Except when you buy Heinz Curryketschup in a German Delikatessen. A show by podcastnik.com — visit the site for all projects and news. ☞ Check out our new show, Past Access!

056: The Stone Bridge of Regensburg

The stone bridge in Regensburg, built in 1135, has been through a lot. It's the oldest standing bridge in Germany and also spans some 300 meters. It's an heirloom of German history that even has its own lore around it. Swedes destroying one of its guard towers, Nazis blowing up a portion to stop American troops, medieval executions. Enough events and legends that it needed its own episode. Also, Regensburg is amazing. The "podcard"--as the kids are calling it--came from Klaudia Zotzmann-Koch. Author and podcaster extraordinaire, resident of Vienna, but from an area we recently covered (Episode 51), she gives us more insight into the area. https://www.zotzmann-koch.com/buecher/ (I believe all in German) https://www.zotzmann-koch.com/blog-podcasts/ (in German) A show by podcastnik.com — visit the site for all projects and news. ☞ Check out our new show, Past Access!

Pete and Trav's Podcastnik Year Six!

055: Staufer (Hohenstaufen) I: Conrad III and the 2nd Crusade

The first monarch to start off the Staufer dynasty (often Hohenstaufen in English after their castle) is Conrad III. His reign is marked by difficulties and spends time practically to poor to leave Parma, starts his career as an anti-king, goes to Jerusalem as a pilgrim, and later as a crusader. And not even an Emperor is above Malaria. A show by podcastnik.com — visit the site for all projects and news. ☞ Check out our new show, Past Access!

054: Medieval Medicine and Science: Hildegard of Bingen

Saint Hildegard is one of only four women Doctors of the Church. A 12th century visionary and medical author, Hildegard is making a pretty big comeback in folk medicine (in German speaking countries). There's a lot more to her story, and she gives a rare insight into women's lives in the high medieval period.

051: From Swamp Castle to Emperor: Lothar III of Supplinburg

Lothar III and his marsh castle of Supplinburg was a one-emperor German dynasty. An interesting character himself, looking at his lifetime also allows us to summarize the Salien dynasty and foreshadow the (Hohen)Staufers a bit, like Keiser Barbarossa.

050: Prussian Authority: the Pickelhaube of the Captain of Köpenick - Heirlooms 2

That spiky Prussian helmet has become such a symbol of Germans that it is the actual sign for "German" in many sign languages. The story of the Captain of Köpenick embodies that sense of authority well and is one of our favorite stories. That and we celebrate 50 episodes!
