I like that there is nothing to worry about in Czechia, says Vietnamese-Czech journalist Viet Tran

The Vietnamese are the third biggest group of foreigners living in the Czech Republic. If you’re surprised by that fact, you can check my previous podcast with an explanation of a bit of a Czech-Vietnamese history.

Currently, there is already a new generation of Vietnamese-Czechs who were born in Czechia. What is it like to live as an Asian looking person in a central European country? Is it a good idea for Asians to move to the Czech Republic? Where should you go if you are planning a trip to the Czech Republic and you would like to see a bit of Vietnamese community life?

Viet Tran, a Czech journalist living in Prague answers these questions. And as he is also a Moravian he adds few tips for foreigners wanting to see this part of Czechia. Viet is also a gaming journalist, so you can look forward to a brief introduction to the world of Czech games and he also adds few tips when it comes to Czech movies and food.

Enjoy!

P. S. Mentioned Czech words: Postřižiny, Spalovač mrtvol, špička, větrník, Kroměříž, Brno, Olomouc

Trump or Biden? Who would be the next Czech president in a parallel universe? Podcast with Tomáš H.

Both I and Tomáš Hostýnek enjoy a bit of a talk about politics. We decided to play a small game – we imagined a parallel universe where Donald Trump and Joe Biden are Czech presidential candidates. Who would have a chance of winning? 

Surprisingly we found quite some parallels to the last Czech presidential elections – where it was a battle of president Zeman running for his second term and of academic Jiří Drahoš, a favorite of the liberal part of the Czech society.

Enjoy!

P. S. If you speak Czech, you can also find our podcast on the second channel „Expatka Katka“.
