We are really, really excited about our second episode, which will be the first episode for us to tackle the fields of history and literature! During the 1930s, many well-known writers (among lots of other people, of course) had to emigrate from Germany to avoid being prosecuted by the Nazi regime. One of the most famous immigrants to America: Nobel prize laureate Thomas Mann. Here I will talk about the way he saw America and especially the one person who, for him, encorporated everything that America was about.
We feature Eldorado, Arcadia, campaigning, good and evil, the devil and the monk.
Tune in, get hooked and please share with all of your amazing friends!
