A year ago I did a post about my favourite podcasts. I still really enjoy listening to them. In the meantime I discovered three new podcasts.
The Bright Sessions (link)
This is my favourite podcast at the moment! Every episode is a session in which Dr. Bright talks with one of her patients. The patients are not “normal” people, they all have some kind of supernatural ability. The characters are amazing! It is very interesting to hear about those abilities and how the characters struggle with them sometimes. The podcast also has two LGBTQIA characters: one of them is asexual and another is still questioning his sexual orientation. By now I listened to almost all episode, but every two weeks a new episode is released. All the episodes together form a story, so if you are interested, start at the beginning.
Slow German (link)
In a month I am going on vacation to Berlin! As preparation I practice German. I did learn German in high school, but since I never use the language, I forgot a lot. I like Slow German, because the podcast teaches me both the language and interesting facts about the country. In every episode a subject regarding Germany is discussed in slow German. The topics vary from historical persons like Sissi and King Ludwig II to holidays in Germany. The episodes are short, only 5 to 10 minutes. You can also find the scripts, so you can read along or look up words.
Myths and Legends (link)
The host introduces this podcast as “original tales behind legendary stories.” It turns out that the original is often better than the popular tales you know! The podcasts tells the story behind fairy tales, the Knights of the Round Table and other legends. I only listened to a few episodes, but my favourite at the moment is 4-Mulan: A Likely Hero. Mulan was actually not insecure at all! She was trained by her father and so good nobody even questioned her gender.
