LIT - Čas proměn' (Time of Changes) w/Mark Baker

Guest: Mark Baker, journalist and author - new book Čas proměn' out now!

Writer Mark Baker has been in the region for most of his life, writing new articles, guide books for Fodor's and Lonely Planet, a blog and much more. When he was asked to evaluate the time of the Velvet Revolution from his own perspective, it gave him a chance to visit and re-evaluate that period of history as well as hid own life.  The result is Čas proměn', a personal look at a time when history became very personal indeed for a large swath of Europe.
