Are you interested in the life of Slovak books in the German-speaking world? Would you like to meet the people who support them? Or do you, perhaps, have friends in Germany, Austria or Switzerland who might want to learn more about Slovak literature? If yes, Lit_cast Slowakei, the first German-language podcast about Slovak literature hosted by Michal Hvorecký, is what you were looking for.
The guest of the sixth edition is Lydia Nagel, born in Wisbar, who studied Slavic studies and culturology in Berlin, Belgrade and Moscow. She was the director of the program for students visiting from Ukraine and Belarus in Brandenburg. Later, she was a scholar at the University of Vienna. She has translated plays of the theatre group SkRAT as well as plays written by Michaela Zakuťanská and Viliam Klimáček from Slovak. She is the founder of the Drama Panorama association and she was awarded multiple artistic residencies for her creative work.
