Episode 18: The Gumption of the Bertha Benz

Recommended Posts

I know we've covered this one before ages ago on the channel, but I really love the story of Karl and Bertha Benz and couldn't resist doing it on the podcast ?

Just a quick very late feedback: in German, "pf" is a voiceless labiodental affricate (an affricate being the same kind of sound as English ch, which is t and sh together), and "pf" is a single sound that has both a p and f sound in it. 

There are some sound samples on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiceless_labiodental_affricate?wprov=sfla1

sorry if you already figured this out in a later episode, I am still listening through them in order lol
