Award-winning author and podcaster Rick Kaempfer talks with Brent about his latest novel “Back in the DDR,” a coming of age story wrapped in a Cold War spy thriller. His work is filled with food, too, some delicious, some stomach churning. Rick shares who makes the best schnitzel, what to get at a German bakery, and why he loves pickled herring. [Ep 208]
