The Germany Experience
★★★★★

Entertaining and infuriating

Found this podcast by accident and got curious about what immigrants think about my country. The show is quite entertaining, although somewhat infuriating. After ~60 episodes I'm convinced this whole thing is an elaborate scam with the sole purpose of triggering German listeners by sneaking in small mistakes and misconceptions, just to trick them into sending angry letters with corrections. I found this concept rather original and amusing until the host brought in allegedly German guest Nina who had the audacity to claim Köftespieß was the same as Kebab. That's just not funny anymore. Other than that the host and guests seem nice enough. I told my expat friends about the podcast and they said (quote) "You know you've really run out of stuff to do when you're listening to podcasts about learning how to live in a country you've already been in for 35 years" and they're not wrong.
