Robots with mustard, take six: How funny is the state of emergency? Are we done laughing yet? What is it like living in a world with distancing? What has happened to personal closeness? Do we need more or less distance? What is to become of humanity? 

To answer these questions, we decided to invite this time around a documentary filmmaker who knows better than anyone how to use his charm to get close to people. Plus an author whose literature deals in part with losses in human history. And an up-and-coming writer who still doesn’t speak proper German and is actually no longer a newcomer.

Guests: Michael Reisecker (Reiseckers Reisen), Judith Schalansky, Tomer Gardi
Hosts: Daniela Strigl, Klaus Kastberger
Correspondent: Martin Brachvogel
Assistant: Die Miri – Miriam Schmid
Robots: David Valentek
Music: Julian Werl
