I just found another German podcast that includes transcripts, helpfully linked from Slow German.
Der Explikator. What a cool name. If an English-language podcast tried to get away with using that ‘K’ it’d just look pretentious, but since it’s German, that’s just how it’s spelled.
The narrator enunciates clearly and speaks at a medium pace. There are more than 500 episodes, so there’s surely something for everybody. A few episodes I’m excited about:
- Kinder und Smartphones
- Die Vegetarierin
- The Thief and the Cobbler
- Vermin Supreme, and of course
- Die Muppet Show
I kind of wish this podcast was in English so I could listen to them without having to work so hard. Which is exactly the attitude I should have, since it means I’m using the German as a means to get to the message, rather than vice versa.
