Episode 34 – A Wolf called Romeo

We could not be happier that Nick Jans, author of the best-selling book A Wolf called Romeo talking about the magical encounter with a wild black wolf during the early 2000s in Juneau, Alaska. An encounter that had a deep impact on the entire Juneau community and the power to change the view on wild wolf behavior.

This once in a lifetime story directly witnessed by Nick Jans himself over a course of six years Romeo would make his appearance and took Nick Jans three more years to be written down as one of his most famous best-selling books ever translated into a variety of different languages.

In the summer of 2019, we had the pure pleasure not only talking about the encounter itself but on a much broader variety of subjects, e. g. climate change, the return of wolves in Germany, the legacy of Romeo and much more.

We hope you all will enjoy this interview as much as we did. Feel free to comment on each and everything you want to let us know.

Thank you so much for listening.

Episode 25 – Dialogue With A Composer- Takeshi Furukawa

Friday, 24th of August 2018. Downtown Cologne. Near Neumarkt. A wonderful almost midsummer afternoon offered the perfect framework as a reward for weeks of intensive preparation for this most eagerly awaited encounter. As part of Soundtrack # 15, we were able to win the award-winning composer Takeshi Furukawa for an in-depth dialogue. For more than two hours, he should give us answers to many questions concerning his person and his works. So it was particularly important for us to choose a course of conversation that brings us closer to the person Takeshi Furukawa, what his motivation is, how he describes his compositional process or what role his Japanese roots still play.

From the good two hours 90 minutes can be heard here, which are accompanied by some special selected wonderful music pieces and their background story by Takeshi Furukawa himself from the Playstation 4 videogame The Last Guardian. And since there has never been a conversation translated into German with Takeshi Furukawa, we are celebrating another premiere with this one of our most elaborate episodes yet.

We hope that you like this particular episode as much as we do. A very personal thank you Takeshi for making this all possible!

This episode serves as an introduction to the wonderful interview with the award-winning composer Takeshi Furukawa, which we will finally release on November 11, 2018.

Who is this Takeshi Furukawa? How did this personal meeting come about in the first place? Why should a music lover remember his name well? We discuss these and more questions once again in a relaxed manner at the kitchen table and hope to make you all even more curious about our next Episode 25.
