For his book »Auch nur ein Mensch«, the SPIEGEL author Marc Hujer met politicians in their private circles.
He cycled with Sahra Wagenknecht, hiked with Anton Hofreiter and played tennis with Markus Söder.
How different are top politicians outside of their offices?
How much authenticity is even possible in politics;
how much staging is necessary?

SPIEGEL author Marc Hujer talks about these questions with Green Party leader Katrin Göring-Eckardt and former Federal President Christian Wulff in the podcast.
Before the interview, the actor Ulrich Matthes reads excerpts from the book.
