It's an old tradition inscribed on stone tablets: each new Titanic editor-in-chief must make an inaugural visit to the Reformbühne Heim & Welt (roughly: Stage of Reform – Home and World). Thus Moritz Hürtgen, who took the reins of the definitive satire magazine from his predecessor Tim Wolff in 2019, has to curry the favour of the Reformbühnler before the humour tribunal in the Roter Salon. With his nifty actions like #miomiogate or Focus fake news on the eco-terrorists that manipulate exhaust measurements with air pumps, he's certainly already curried their sympathies. Now we'll see how he does with reading texts!
Danny Dziuk, in contrast, is an old hand in the German songwriting world. He's the music director of Axel Prahl's Inselorchester, has written songs for a range of artists from Stoppok to Wiglaf Droste and Annett Louisan, and above all else, he's a wonderful singer and musician whose texts have claimed places in the Reformbühne's all-time charts.
