WorldLink: The Personal Stories with Global Voices ~ Weekly from DW

Series produced by DW - Deutsche Welle

Series image

In this age of information overload, personal stories are often sidelined by the roar of headlines. At WorldLink, we endeavor to redress that balance. Through exclusive interviews and reports from around the globe, our show offers a glimpse into how current affairs affect people's lives. We explore the German view of the world and vice versa, reflecting the questions that dominate people's lives around the globe.

WorldLink brings you 54 jammed-packed minutes of personal stories from around the globe. Listen in for exclusive interviews, sound-rich reports, profiles, opinion pieces and the occasional dash of humour.

The PRX Exchange version of WorldLink is a 53-minute version for NPR stations who wish to insert an NPR newscast, and also includes a 59-second billboard.

If you have any questions or feedback on the programme, please contact us at worldlink@dw.com or visit us on Facebook DW Global Society. You can also subscribe to our free WorldLink podcast on Itunes.
