Bilal Qureshi
Hear Now! Bilal Qureshi, NPR's All Things Considered
Listening Event at the Goethe-Institut
Tuesday, January 22nd

"In the tradition of radio as a space for dialogue and integration between German and American ideas, Bilal Qureshi spent a year as a Robert Bosch Transatlantic Fellow conceptualizing and producing a new English-language audio magazine inspired by Berlin's multifaceted identity, a magazine filled with audio essays, field reporting and interviews from across the city. The show's two hour-long episodes featured stories ranging from the fallout over Gunter Grass' Israel poem to racism, food, and fashion in the Haupstadt. It was eventually broadcast in Germany on NPR Berlin, a radio outpost of the American network that rose from the ashes of what was once a U.S. military radio network. This is the story of Berlin Stories."
