UV Podcast 047 - HW Rhapsody
Manche behaupten HW Rhapsody erfinden sich regelmäßig neu, andere mögen an ihnen, dass sie sich immer treu geblieben sind. Hä? Was denn jetzt? Öfters könnte man den Eindruck bekommen, sie wären ein kratzbürstiges altes Ehepaar, öfters wünscht man sich aber auch, selbst mit ihnen verwandt zu sein. Nebenbei sind sie der lebende Beweis, dass man...

UV Podcast 043 - Massimiliano Pagliara
What kind of connection was actually lost? Sometimes you happen to meet great and inspiring people and you feel there could be a special connection with them. Sometimes this is true and it actually happens. You connect with someone. Other times, it is perhaps more some sort of fantasy, an idealisation of a possible and...
UV Podcast 042 - Steffen Bennemann
