The Czech Start-up scene is currently growing, says Isabell Mayrhofer, an Austrian living in Prague

Isabell Mayrhofer decided early on that she would like to see the world. So far she has lived abroad for nearly 15 years now (USA, Germany, United Kingdom, Singapore, France). She is currently living in Prague and working for a Start-up Live Penalty which focuses on the development of a mobile game combining the real and the virtual world of football. 

Previously she has been working for another Czech Start-up (Automobilist), so you can take a peek inside this booming Prague scene. 

Before her Czech Start-up career, she has been working in the film industry in Hollywood, so you can look forward to stories from this part of the world. And of course, we talked also about the similarities between the Czech and the Austrian culture (especially when it comes to food :-)).

Enjoy!

P. S. You can check more about the mentioned Start-ups here: https://www.livepenalty.com/

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
