The show tries to foster civil dialogue in Berlin and beyond, and its topics will range from local, including the inaugural episode, “Who is a REAL Berliner?” to transatlantic discussion on the U.S. presidential elections and their impact on the sister cities of Berlin and Los Angeles (KCRW Berlin is partnered with KCRW in L.A.) “Common Ground” is a must for the large, English-speaking community of Berlin trying to make sense of urban life in Germany’s complex capital city.
