»Off the Record« – Podcast von Deutschlandfunk Kultur (De)
What does protest sound like? Do protest songs have a political impact or are they just good soundtracks for demonstrations? How much empowerment lies in a good anti-song? In the podcast »Off the Record«, Vero Schreiegg talks with a guest about a given topic and the songs that go with it. In the joint back and forth, a soundtrack is created: inspiring, humorous and empathetic.
Recorded live at Pop-Kultur, this episode welcomes guest Claudia Roth, Minister of State for Culture, whose life has been strongly influenced by culture and music. For example, before becoming the leader of the Green party, Member of the European Parliament, Vice President of the Bundestag and now Minister of State for Culture, she worked in theatres and as manager of the band Ton Steine Scherben. Her personal song selection is sure to be surprising.
