New China – New Zealand Podcast

Well, actually it is the first podcast that has been recorded from China and New Zealand. In the third episode we finally broadcast our experiences directly from our two new home countries. Having some difficulties to actually select a recording time in our busy lifes Max agreed to wake up early and Bene skipped school. Topics of this episode are the unexpected Winter in New Zealand, a Chinese Wedding, Sleeping Bus drivers and broken Bikes.

Please excuse the bad audio quality but even after three podcast episodes we still face struggles to keep all of our equipment in shape. Enjoy the news from around the world and keep us posted what happens in your life – Comments and Feedback are (as every time) greatly appreciated!

18126,188 km

or 11263.091 miles have been the distance between Bene and me when we recorded our second podcast episode from Berlin (Germany) and Palmerston North (New Zealand). Considering the distance in length and time (11h!) we are quite happy with the results. I am still on a short holiday brake in Berlin and Bene has his gathered his first impressions from New Zealand. Topics of this episode amongst others are

  • Benes new room
  • my short holiday in Germany
  • Bavarian Nationalism in New Zealand

Once again we are happy for your comments (we will start to undress again next episode, right bene?) and will continue our journey with me in China and Bene with some real adventures in New Zealand. Stay tuned and safe everybody!

My very first, very own (partly), ..


Yes, some of you have already seen my episodes from Finland (Hyvää Suomi 1-10) which I sluggishly called Podcast. But to be true the series wasn’t really one. It was a collection of wonderful stories of which I am very fond. Nevertheless I never lost the feeling that something was missing. Usually those stories came out very much after everything happened and left out a lot of little details. Production was to time consuming to do more of them. You really do not want to sit in front of the computer the whole day, when you are in another country!

And now I am wiser? Well, I am trying!

Together with Bene we will conquer the problem of forgotten videos, photos and thoughts to share. Since we will call us around the globe regularly and privately anyway we just decided to record what we tell the other one. Its easy right? Not really – In reality we decided to do some weird recording setup which includes:

  • 2 SLR camera
  • 2 Laptops
  • 2 Headsets
  • 2 webcams
  • 2 Virtual cameras
  • ..

Well, you’ll get the idea. The first episode was a test to prove that we can actually do this technically. We are sure that this is the case. Can we do this intellectually – well, that’s up for you to decide.

How do you like our way of sharing our thoughts? Should we change something? What did you like especially? How often should we do this? How long should it be? Should it be audio only, or should we stick with video? Please feel free to post your comments under this article or directly to the video on Vimeo.

The first episode talks about this podcast, our preparations in Munich for China and New Zealand, loads of clothing, chinese language skills, and a very special blue shirt. Interested – go ahead and check it out!
