Mädels is the German word for girls.
The Mädels with a Microphone is a podcasting series from local journalists Jennifer Collins and Tam Eastley. Together, they strive to create informative and quirky long and short podcasts about the hidden side of Berlin. The podcasts are entirely self-produced using Audacity free software and trusty little zoom H2 recorders.
Spreepark is the place to go in Berlin for urban explorers. Once a popular GDR amusement park, then a privatized post-GDR fledgling amusement park and now an abandoned and creepy amusement park covered in overgrown foliage and trees, it's the perfect place to explore. Located in Plänterwald just beside Treptower Park, toppled dinosaurs, a 45-metre high ferris wheel that blows eerily in the wind, and ghostly abandoned fun park villages greet those who dare to hop over the fence.
As it turns out that the story behind the park, its collapse into bankruptcy, and the destruction of the family who owned it, is much sadder than the remnants of this once beloved place.
