Welcome to the first episode of Source Code Berlin, a new podcast project from Wikimedia Deutschland. Our goal is to better understand the talented, creative, and driven Berliners, especially in the world of open culture projects and open source programming. Who are they? What do they do? Why are they here? The big questions on the road to understanding what seems to have become a global phenomenon. Photo 27-09-14 14 04 14

Today we start with the long view, the observations of writer, journalist and historian Marcel Krueger.

Then we move indoors and get more specific, a look into the world of Wikimedia Deutschland with help from free culture enthusiast and Wikidata Project Manager Lydia Pintscher, as we explore some specific projects and how they connect with the big picture.

Additional music on this episode includes: Hungaria by Latché Swing
