By the way. What is a podcast in our view?

Well we subscribe to "It’s on-demand audio. Like a radio show, but on-demand.”

That’s it. That’s all a podcast really is.

The “on-demand” bit is important. It’s the defining thing about podcasting.

The “audio” bit is important. Yes, you can get video podcasts, but the point of any podcast, even one with video in it, is as a piece of audio. (Close your eyes, and it should still work)".

    A Mexican in Banja Luka

    A Mexican in Banja Luka

    In this episode Tamara and I visit “Chiquita”, a Mexican restaurant in Hanište, Banja Luka.
    Chiquita is the only venue that serves Authentic Mexican cuisine in the city. Yes, there are Mexican recipes featured on our restaurants menus, but to be honest they really don’t “cut the mustard”.
    Adriana, who co-owns this small restaurant, tells us about the influences she has brought to Banja Luka as well as the similarities in culture, historical links and the food she prepares. It's quite the story

    Remembering Yugoslavia

    Remembering Yugoslavia

    This interview was recorded with a few hiccups due to buffering across our feed 😞

    In this episode I get to talk to Peter Korchnak, Podcaster and Writer, about the “Remembering Yugoslavia” Podcast.

    The Remembering Yugoslavia podcast explores the memory of the country that no longer exists. How do people of the former Yugoslav republics remember and imagine their former homeland?

    “I was born in a country that no longer exists (Czechoslovakia) and explore the memory of another (Yugoslavia)”.

    The Bosnian Who Lives on a Boat

    The Bosnian Who Lives on a Boat

    This interview was recorded with a few hiccups due to buffering across our feed 😞

    In this episode I get to talk to Biljana Lipić, a resident of Cornwall in the United Kingdom but originally from Sarajevo.
    Biljana lives on a boat anchored on a Cornish river. I first found out about Biljana from a story that I stumbled across online.

    I have to admit that I have always had an interest in narrow boating, and living on the water in general, so when I saw that someone from Sarajevo had achieved what was one of my dreams back in the day, I just had to find out more.

    The Italians of Mahovljani

    The Italians of Mahovljani

    Hello and welcome to the podcast, where in this episode we look at the legacy of a group of some 55 Italian families that came to the village of Mahovljani back in the late eighteen hundreds.

    Today all that remains of that Italian influence is its church, high on the hill, vineyards that those settlers founded (and by the way are still harvested and turned into wine), and families with both Italian first and second names.

    Many years ago I heard about this small former colony near where I have lived for nearly 20 years.
    I have been intrigued ever since.
    So, to my surprise and by pure chance, I bumped into one of the descents of one of the Italian families, Guilia, and asked her if she could tell me more about her community.

    She agreed, and so we met her, and her family, at the Italian church on the hill, looking down on the Vrbas valley, just like her ancestors must have done on their arrival over 140 years ago.
    It’s quite the story.

    The Documentary Photographer

    The Documentary Photographer

    In this episode I talk to David Harmes, a Canadian, who at the age of 22, was a Documentary Photographer for the Red Cross in 1993’s war torn Croatia, experiencing the effects of conflict and Dodging Mines.
    He came back to the region some 16 years later and this time was thrown out of one of them.
    It’s quite the story.
