Cold War Conversations

Cloak & Dagger in Cold War Prague (9)

Listen on

Episode notes

Mark Baker is an independent journalist and travel writer who’s lived in Central Europe for more than two decades. 

 I heartily recommend his travel website which is an eclectic mix of stories about his adopted hometown of Prague and stories from when Central Europe was the “Eastern bloc” and he was a full-time journalist trying his best to cover it. 

 Mark tells an intriguing and compelling story and I urge you to listen right to the end. I hope you enjoy our chat and I welcome Mark Baker. (the drawing is by Stewart K Moore and is a representation of Mark’s Czechoslovak fixer during the 1980s)
