Podcast interview with Katharina Kramer
Heute gibt es eine echte Permiere. Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte von Cipherbrain präsentiere ich ein von mir geführtes Podcast-Interview. Meine Gesprächspartnerin ist die Schriftstellerin Katharina Kramer.
As we all know, once must be the first time. So today, for the first time in the history of this blog, I present a podcast interview.
A few months ago, the Hamburg writer Katharina Kramer contacted me. She pointed me to her novel “The Language of Light”, in which numerous cryptological themes also play a role.
Since I had just planned a trip to Hamburg anyway, I suggested that we meet there. However, that was not possible for scheduling reasons. Ms. Kramer therefore suggested an interview conducted by video conference. I agreed and decided to turn this conversation into a podcast interview. And that’s exactly what happened.
Katharina Kramer studied English, French, journalism and education in Hamburg, Durham/England and Paris. She has worked as a non-fiction translator as well as a high school teacher, and as a journalist specializing in science and cultural history, writing for ZEIT, Süddeutsche Zeitung, SPIEGEL, GEO, mare, and PM-History, among others. “The Language of Light” is her first novel.
And here you can listen to the interview:
