 On this episode of Out of Office: A Travel Podcast, Kiernan chats with The New Yorker’s Alex Ross about his recent article “A Grand Tour of Germany’s Opera Paradise.” Ross explains how the German government’s investment in the arts allows directors and actors to take more artistic risks—and keeps ticket prices within reach of the average person and tourist. Germany’s network of over 80 opera houses means that even small towns can be home to extraordinary theater. Plus, bratwurst!

I'm undecided on whether I want to continue listening to these podcasts. The first few times I listened to it, it wasn't particularly intriguing because it's probably not my style. You can play this song repeatedly; you can develop an addiction to it https://wordsfromletters.co/

I can't decide if I want to listen to more of these podcasts....*sigh* some of this was good.... some of it was serious eye rolls (imminent doom ... really?).
