In our first show we take you along to Leon in the North of Spain. Some guest in a tapas bar tell us about the social aspects of the tapas culture. Dot from Sweden wonders when Spanish people ever get their sleep and Indre from Lithuania tells us the heart-breaking story of a Lithuanian basket-baller and his Israeli girlfriend who have different religions and whose wedding plans are overshadowed by gossip in their respective countries.
The Hosts of the show are: Anne Fox and Dr. Elmar-Laurent Borgmann
Chief Editor: Karsten Kneese (the pod-Karsten)
Welcome to the first ever intercultural podcast.
‘Absolutely Intercultural’ is its name and, as far as we know, this is the first podcast in the world to deal with intercultural issues. We’ll be releasing a new episode every second Friday evening, looking at all intercultural aspects of human intercultural communication.
For example, we’ll be hearing from students on foreign work placements, looking at inter-cultural aspects of the forthcoming World Cup, asking how teachers can make use of inter-cultural exercises and simulations in their classroom and sharing with you any intercultural gossip we come across.
‘Absolutely Intercultural’ won’t be so much about passing on information but more about starting an intercultural dialogue between the makers, the contributors and the listeners.
So, join in the conversation, the rest is just bits, bytes and RSS-feeds!
Anne Fox (from Denmark) and Elmar-Laurent Borgmann (from Germany)
