Glückauf!

This is Graukaue (Gray Coe), a podcast studio at the Fürst Leopold Colliery in Hervest-Dorsten.

I'm the coe's custodian (Kauenwärter).

Pits

The podcasts. There's Graukaue 1, which comprises three levels, and there's Graukaue 2.

Graukaue 1

This is the German-language pit; see graukaue.ruhr.

Graukaue 2

This is the English-language pit.

Big city whisper

Under the roof of Graukaue, there's a microphone for everybody, provided that she has a story to tell. Maybe she doesn't really take herself serious, but she's serious about whatever she does. Maybe she's rhetorically unreliable, but she's open and honest.
