Democrats Abroad Germany's Fundraising And Event Coordinator and Berlin Vice Chair, Emily Lines, on the political talk show Phoenix Runde on 18 December 2019. She talks about impeachment with Prof. Boris Vormann, USA-Experte Bard College Berlin, Benjamin Wolfmeier, Republicans Overseas Germany, and Sudha David Wilp, German Marshall Fund of the United States.
Our Press Coordinator Beverly Seebach was interviewed on the “The Americans” podcast.
This week’s episode of “The Americans” takes a closer look at the US presidency from a different perspective: geographically speaking. There are millions of Americans living abroad - who still care about what’s going on back home. With presidential elections coming up a year from now, a handful of the few thousand Democrats living in Germany are volunteering their free time to be an active part of politics in their home country.
Listen to the interview.

The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results. What a great book, it was well worth the wait. Watch an interview with the author.
Trump on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President by Justin A. Frank
No president in the history of the United States has inspired more alarm and confusion than Donald Trump. As questions and concerns about his decisions, behavior, and qualifications for office have multiplied, they point to one primary question: Does he pose a genuine threat to our country? The American Psychiatric Association's Goldwater Rule constrains psychiatrists from offering diagnoses on public figures who are not patients and who have not endorsed such statements. But in Trump on the Couch Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Justin A Frank invokes the moral responsibility that compels him to speak out and present a full portrait of a man who presents us with a clear and present danger. Listen to an interview with the author.
