Almut Finck, Heiner Wember, Helge Schröder and Theresia Jägers
The historycast is produced in cooperation between the two journalists and authors Dr. Almut Finck and Dr. Heiner Wember and the Association of History Teachers in Germany (VGD) and is funded by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media. Twelve episodes are published per season. Current discussions and issues in historical scholarship are presented in an exciting and sophisticated way. The starting point for the interviews with well-known scholars is a current book on a historical topic. In this way, newer questions, perspectives and research results can be made accessible to teachers and pupils - in each case taking into account school issues. The podcast touches on the big questions of our time in order to contrast the omnipresent "media hype" and fake news with a serious perspective. Each episode is accompanied by teaching materials developed by experienced practitioners of history teaching. In this way, the podcast can be used profitably in various teaching situations, but can also provide the basis for smaller or larger projects. The workshop will discuss the history, impact and possible future perspectives of the podcast in an open format. You will have the opportunity to experience the team live and to set impulses.
