Johannes Koch & Jacob Sundberg
The new religion of recycling is a German obsession - but also an act of humanism
Show Notes
Germans religiously follow the recycling dictates of the authorities and get chastised by their neighbors if they don't flatten their cardboard packages. Johannes argues that recycling is a German obsession - but also an act of humanism. Jacob Sundberg is a Swedish author (http://jacobsundberg.se) and Johannes Koch is a German journalist. Together they hypothesize, entertain and enlighten you about a wide variety of topics ranging from the trivial to the existential - and usually spin them out into their illogical conclusions. At times philosophical, at times psychological but hardly ever researched or serious, they jostle with a new (Un)cultured Hypothesis every other week.
