Having moved from my native Ireland to the then newly established Czech Republic in 1993, I was hired at Radio Prague in late 2001. Within a few weeks of joining the station I had got to interview two members of Monty Python (Jones and Gilliam) and thought, This is the job for me. Since then I have reported on all manner of subjects, ranging from Czech accession to the European Union to an oyster eating contest on Old Town Square. My steady feature in recent years has been the interview slot One on One and though it is challenging constantly finding guests it has been a fantastic experience. Recording the monthly My Prague has also been a treat, with subjects almost invariably taking me to at least one spot with which I had previously been unfamiliar.
