My first podcast is broadcast: The Fall of Heidelberg

What is there left to say? Thanks to the diligent help of my colleague, Detlev Scholz, a hazy picture of whom you will find below, my first story podcast has been broadcast. My translation out of Michael Buselmeier's 'The Fall of Heidelberg', read by myself. Do feel free to post any reactions to the story at the bottom of this blog post.

Are there many visitors to Germany's second largest book fair who really know what they're looking for?
