Being a more or less stable part of the RSI English team since 2009, Zuzana still found the time to acquire a university degree in Sociology and Media. Therefore she feels at home in covering social and cultural issues, as well as various Slovak travelling destinations, festivals and occasional sport. She is also known to be the section's biggest expert on the traditional Slovak folk culture. Be it folk instruments, music, dance or handicrafts - Zuzana knows (and loves) them all, and she is very eager to spread this fascination around.
Martina used to work in the English section from 2000 to 2006. Even back then, she went all cultural. Exhibitions, concerts, books, films, theatre performances, artists, singers, writers from all over Slovakia can be found in the Thursday show. Martina understands poetry and started competing in reading it as soon as she turned 5. She can sing and, oh, yeah, she can also draw a bit too. It's safe to say she hunts for the beauty in any performance. She's happy to be back once again doing the work she loves!
Mojmír has been a part of our team since 2015. He covers sport, social affairs, tourism and education. Apart from working in RSI, he also is an actor working on projects in theatre, on the internet and TV as well as films. Having played ice hockey for 10 years, Mojmír likes sports too.
Marianna has been working for Radio Slovakia International since April 2021. From the beginning she wanted to show that ecology affects many areas around us. In reports and interviews, she emphasises the need to protect nature and think about our future. As a graduate of journalism at Comenius University in Bratislava, she is also interested in current social issues in Slovakia. A lover of quality Slovak music and festivals, Marianna also used to be active in the theatre, acting in several plays.
Ben Pascoe hails from Canada but has been living in Slovakia for more than 20 years. He enjoys reading and drinking a beer while arguing about current affairs. When he is not busy searching for interesting stories for his radio show he teaches English and runs a small café/used bookstore. He has made Bratislava his home and lives there with his wife and 2 children all of whom enjoy laughing at his frequent Slovak language mistakes.
