Hello to Berlin

Hosted by

Los Angeles is officially a sister city with Berlin. Unofficially, it's a city that shares tight bonds with LA; for starters both are highly attractive to designers, artists and musicians.

DnA is going to Berlin with KCRW's Madeleine Brand and Jason Bentley. Before heading there we heard about Berlin from LA's vantage point.

Decades founder Cameron Silver revisits his album of torch songs celebrating Weimar era Berlin; Justin Jampol toured us around the 1949 Culver City bunker that will be the new home of the Wende Museum, an archive of Cold War era artifacts.

And, Germany's Deputy Consul General Stefan Biedermann shares just what makes LA and Berlin natural “sisters.”

Also featuring: Pae White, Jennifer Marmon.
