Bohemian Classical Music Composers - Smetana & Dvořák - podcast with Czech pianist Tomáš Hostýnek
Michael G. Maurer is an American who studied high-school in Texas and then moved to California to pursue his film-making dreams. And maybe he would be still living in L. A., if there wouldn’t be a lucky coincidence of him meeting his future wife Markéta, a Czech from a city of Pilsen.
Michael is now living in Bohemia for more than a decade and he will share with you his insights from an American-Expat point of view. He has also many interesting stories from his travels around the world and from the movie industry (f. e. Spider-Man, Legally Blond 2,…), so you can look forward to hearing about that as well.
I fell in love with the Czech Republic because of the Weather, says ex-Californian Michael G. Maurer
