Fiete Gastro - Der auch kulinarische Podcast

Bei „Fiete Gastro“ wird das Prinzip Talk-Podcast komplett gedreht: Erst nachdem Tim und Moderator Sebastian Merget, der durch den Podcast führt, kurz ein bisschen „Wer bin ich“ gespielt haben, kommt der Gast ins Studio. Manchmal kennt Tim Mälzer seinen Besucher schon, ein anderes Mal hat er ihn noch nie gesehen. Was die Gäste eint: Sie sind bekannt oder stehen für ein ganz bestimmtes Thema – und sie bringen Tim ein Gastgeschenk mit. Im Gespräch geht es dann immer wieder um Essen, Kochen, Kulinarik und Gastronomie. Produziert von Podstars by OMR. #Promis #Stars #Interview #Talkshow #Humor #Comedy #KitchenImpossible

Verbrechen

Warum lässt eine Frau ihren Mann erschießen? Wie kommt ein Kommissar an ein Geständnis? Und warum lügen Zeugen manchmal? Was, wenn Polizisten kriminell handeln oder Sachverständige versuchen, ihre Irrtümer zu kaschieren? Und was, wenn Unschuldige in die Mühlen der Strafjustiz geraten – und niemand ihnen glaubt …? Sabine Rückert aus der ZEIT-Chefredaktion ist Expertin für Verbrechen und deren Bekämpfung. Sie saß in großen Strafprozessen, schrieb preisgekrönte Gerichtsreportagen und ging unvorstellbaren Kriminalfällen nach. Durch ihre Berichterstattung deckte sie außerdem zwei Justizirrtümer auf. Sie beschäftigt sich mit Rechtsmedizin und Kriminalpsychiatrie ebenso wie mit Glaubwürdigkeitsbegutachtung und Profiling. Rückert kennt die Welt der Verbrechensbekämpfung von der Polizeiwache bis zum Bundesgerichtshof. Mit Andreas Sentker, dem Leiter des Wissensressorts der ZEIT, spricht Sabine Rückert über die Fälle ihres Lebens.
