BERN, Switzerland, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - The English service has launched an
audio Podcast service. As the successor to Swiss Radio International,
swissinfo is continuing a tradition that began more than 70 years ago with the
words, "This is Switzerland calling".
The current affairs Podcast highlights the top stories of the week in
Switzerland as well as offbeat and cultural news. The reports give a voice to
the people making the headlines or who have a unique story to tell. The
Podcast compliments the news and feature texts available on our website, and
- because it can be downloaded to an MP3 player - gives users the advantage of
listening when they want, where they want and how they want. Of course, the
Podcast can also be played online.
This week, hear how American-style politicking has come to Switzerland
and why a magic line could become the next best thing to a world wonder.
swissinfo is an enterprise of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation. The
internet information platform http://www.swissinfo.ch provides news about
Switzerland in the form of text, image, audio and video reports in nine
languages. The focus is on Swiss politics, business, social affairs, travel &
culture as well as science & technology.
