Podcast: FREIHEIT DELUXE with guest Siri Hustvedt
"If you want to talk about freedom, you have to create free spaces," says Heidelberg-based writer and journalist Jagoda Marinić. With the podcast series FREIHEIT DELUXE ("freedom deluxe") she has created such a space for freedom and thinking. Marinić talked with US author Siri Hustvedt about ideas of freedom and morality, about misogyny, and about why women are only noticed intellectually when they are no longer perceived primarily as women.
