Austria v. Germany with Stefanie

Austria v. Germany with Stefanie

Austria and Germany have a sensitive relationship. Picture a sibling rivalry, but with countries and cultures that have coexisted in varying states of war and peace for centuries.


Season 3, Episode 17. Austria and Germany have a sensitive relationship. Picture a sibling rivalry, but with countries and cultures that have coexisted in varying states of war and peace for centuries.

Today's guest, Stefanie, grew up in Austria and, against all odds and cultural norms, married a German. *pause for gasps* The two live in Stuttgart, Germany, where Stefanie is experiencing a strange expatriation process after living in the UK for 16 years.

Stefanie delights us with a chat that manages to be both laugh-out-loud hilarious and thought-provoking. Highlights include us bonding over our love for the World's Largest Pig Museum and the perspective Stefanie's family's history gives her as a tour guide at a World War II museum in Stuttgart.
