How do you tell the difference between a rollercoaster and a history tour...? Today's guide decided pretty quickly that jokes were not her thing. We talk pre-tour nerves, teenage bullies and the beers of the future.

Our guest today couldn't believe it snowed in March. Or that he couldn't get a corona-test while showing flu symptoms. We talk about improving our lives as guides, the inability to make decisions in times of crisis, and the mind-blowing effect of window-cleaning.

In their 14 years in Berlin this anthropologist and guide has seen the city transformed. And not always in a good way. We talk capitalist baggage, the death star of tourism and dancing for mental health.

Having broken her ankle last year, the Refugee Voices founder understands how precarious tour guiding can be. We talk to the star of her own tragicomedy about how a relatively comfortable crisis can still be triggering and how she plans to explain all of this to the baby she’s carrying.

This guide from the UK had a feeling that things might have to change. From severed connections to strengthened bonds, isolation has made his world curiously bigger. We talk about keeping it simple and why we can’t return to default mode.

This guide has been in the game since before the Berlin Wall came down. And now she’s a housewife for the first time. We talk about the importance of spending time apart and why she doesn’t give advice. And, of course, the value in seeing other people’s noses.

Beate is quarantining here. Conversation from April 10th 2020.

Today’s guide talks to us from his own private island. He moved to Berlin to get away from the countryside, but now rural Brandenburg is his refuge from city life. We talk about how much water it takes to wash yourself and why he’s wary of too many cars with Berlin number plates...
