Disagree with culture notes

I downloaded this podcast before going to Germany as an exchange student (with no German language experience prior to going there) Although the phrases that are taught in this podcast are great, I could have disagreed with practically every culture note. I would be listening to this podcast before breakfast and the podcast would say something about german breakfasts never having (...) and then I would walk into the kitchen and that would be exactly what we'd be having. I discovered during my time there that different parts of the country have VERY different culture, accents/dialects, etc, but I wouldn't recommend taking the culture notes too seriously. I also got really annoyed that the German girl would say something about Americans that didn't seem all that "polite" about us and the American guy would agree with her and almost bash his own culture. Lastly (and again it would depend on where in Germany you are) the American guy always pronounces words that ended with "-ch" (ie"ich") with a "shh" sound (ie "ish"). I pronounced ich as "ish" once and everyone laughed and told me that I sounded like an American. so be warned...

First eight or so lessons are missing from iTunes.

This appears to be nothing more than an elaborate ad to get paid members for their website. They seems they want you to sign up as a monthly member at access the first seven or eight "podcasts." Sure, you get a free 7 day trial, but you have to listen to the lessons on their site; no downloads. The podcasts here serve no purpose since you can't use them without the first seven or eight. Why would Apple allow this? If this becomes common it would ruin iTunes as every podcast turns out to be advertising for some pay-to-play monthly subscription website. That's going to get old really quick. It's enough to make me wonder if the reviews are even real. Smells. Bad.

i love this podcast

the lessons are great, but i wish they were longer. i subscribe to almost all of the free german language podcasts on iTunes and there are only 2 that work for my beginner brain. and this is one of them! great job and please post more often. danke!
