Who does the voices for the stories?

Because they're very enjoyable to listen to, and it's nice to hear genuine German voices rather than the text-to-speech. Are the actors native German speakers?

    Are the actors native German speakers?

    Given the accuracy of their accent I would say yes.

    Agreed, they sound pretty real also to me as a native speaker.

    Agreed! It makes me excited to hear what the podcasts will sound like.

    I'm even under the impression (can't remember where from), that they are Duolingo workers.

    Is it really important? If they sound correct and nice it is all that matters I think :-)

    It's not important, I'm just interested.

    I agree with everyone. It's such a pleasure to listen to.

    Dude, the female voice of the Spanish speaker is undoubtedly damn sexy for me. <3 One of the reasons that motivates me to practice caliente español ;)
