DMTF028 – A streak of good fortune

In this episode the podcast is hosted by Simon together with Patrick and Cynth from Canada to represent our North American listener. We waffle on about two games starting with the home win against Paderborn and then away in Koln. Before the Paderborn game some fans cycled to the stadium in solidarity with climate change protests – our intrepid reporter recorded some of the ride for our listener to enjoy. The Olympiastadion itself was warmer than I remembered as a member of the crowd stripped off and ran out the pitch to cool off causing some people to no see one of the goals. An eventful weekend was had by all and nice to see the old lady coming back into form.

We also talk a little about the continuing saga of the new stadium for Hertha and some of the recent developments. Also we mention the “new” fan based campaign for the right kind of stadium – “Blau-Weisses Stadion”.

Anyhow, here’s the latest episode as of October 2019 so give it a go . . .

Needless to say it is also available on iTunes if you’re an Apple person!

DMTF020 – Tinkle as you score

After just one rather shitty game, Simon and Jan have a little conversation about the home game against Wolfsburg and then drift off into urinals and other baloney. The end features a short interview with Graham of Roker Rapport fame.

Simon and Jan get into the first “real” podcast of the new year, discussing the away game in Nuremberg (awesome, Possum!) and home game against Gelsenkirchen (kinda cool). We also answer some questions from our beloved community and then ramble on as per usual… Little Easter Egg at the very end (Thank God for chapter marks…): We have our first testimonial. Check. It. Out!

Before the away game in Düsseldorf…

DMTF015 – The Sound of Silence

In our newest episode, we have a look at the away game in Dortmund (neat), the away game in the cup in Darmstadt (also neat), the home game against Raba in an unusually quiet Olympiastadion (not very neat) and we also have to talk about the reactions to the flares and violence in Dortmund (not at all neat), the club’s reaction (also not so neat) and the repercussions of the incident, the support boycott and the conflict between the fans and Hertha BSC (nothing neat whatsoever). We try to end on a few positives and will be back after the next home game against Hoffenheim.

DMTF014 – Old or New Hertha?

Here we are again with out latest Hertha podcast in English.  Well Simónir tends to gabble a bit but that’s not a separate language.  In this, our third episode of the 2018/19 season, we discuss the away game in Mainz and the home game against Freiburg and then get lost in other ramblings (again).

Chapter points are as follows –

00:00. –  Hello
00:32. –  Hertha away in Mainz
08:29. –  The International break
14:03. –  Hertha at home against SC Freiburg
40:49. –  Outlook and further ramblings
50:38. –  Its a wrap

We avoided the temptation to talk about American Literature mentioned in tweets before recording but Simónir reserves the right to digress into Norse mythology should we run out of ideas next time ;).
