Mike Litt in conversation with Siham El-Maimouni
How's it going, Düsseldorf?
Our podcast "Alle Rhein" is our platform for all those who ensure that you are almost constantly surrounded by culture in Düsseldorf - whether on a small or large scale. Our host Mike Litt talks to his guests about the most exciting projects and, along the way, clarifies what artists, organizers and other creative people love about their city and: where they prefer to be in their private lives.
In episode 38, Mike talks to Siham El-Maimouni, host.
Düsseldorf is her home, but thanks to her enormous media presence she can also be found in living rooms and on screens all over Germany. She hosts cultural magazines such as "ttt" (Das Erste), but also "Die Sendung mit der Maus". Siham El-Maimouni was honored as "Best Radio Presenter" even before her TV career. She turned down offers from the capital and other metropolises in order to lead her self-determined life in and from Düsseldorf. In this episode of "Alle Rhein!", Siham explains to our host Mike Litt why Düsseldorf and especially the Oberbilk district is the perfect base for Siham El-Maimouni, how she keeps discovering new facets of the city and at the same time experiences a very special sense of home. Siham El-Maimouni reveals herself as a soccer fan, gives some tips for visiting Düsseldorf, and talks about the "secret superpower" she uses to become invisible when she wants to enjoy Düsseldorf's many offerings to the fullest without being recognized.
Mike Litt was born in the US state of Virginia and lived in Bochum for many years. The globetrotter usually works in Cologne but lives with his family in the beautiful Düsseltal district of Düsseldorf. He is a radio presenter (1Live, WDR 2, DLF Nova), a DJ with Mayday festival experience and an author (‘The loneliest DJ in the world’).
