Culturemobile.

The Literature Podcast of the BMW Group.

Great works of world literature in English and in German.

Culture is knowledge, a haven of beauty and depth. Meaning and tranquility far from the maddening crowd. A solitary experience of empathy, especially during these trying times. As a corporate citizen, the BMW Group has been involved in hundreds of cultural initiatives worldwide for almost 50 years. Since 2003, “CultureMobile", an employee initiative, has drawn tens of thousands of colleagues' attention to the company's cultural programs and has invited them to participate. Due to the current situation, where many colleagues work from home, we now present "CultureMobile: The Literature Podcast". An offer to all employees worldwide, to enjoy outside their working hours. As well as for everyone who follows our company on social media. Tune in and enjoy!
