Moritz Metz is a radio journalist, podcast producer, hobbyist and urban activist. He produces reports and research features for national public radio stations Deutschlandradio and ARD, audio book podcasts for the Goethe-Institut, and interactive exhibition objects such as the ‘data pump’ for Wikimedia Germany. In his bi-weekly maker show ‘Netzbasteln’ (‘Net Tinkering’) he has been presenting Dlf Nova listeners with a new DIY project for over five years, from chili cultivation and bicycle brakes to microcontrollers, WLAN hacks and CNC milling. When his previously cobblestoned street in Berlin-Neukölln was asphalted in the fall of 2018, Moritz recorded the increase in speed of passing cars to call for traffic calming with the hashtag #Friedelspeed - with the help of an app.
