Appearance on Polsat News

These past months have been fairly busy – so much so that I didn’t get a chance to update this website. I will be adding links to my recent appearances and articles soon. In the meantime, I’d like to share a link to my conversation with Polsat News 2. Together with professor Aleksander Stępień and Grzegorz Dobiecki, we discussed the Bundestag’s last session before the parliamentary election in Germany on Sept. 24.

Recent appearances on BBC, TRT World and N24

As the judiciary crisis escalated, foreign media had an increased interest in the developments in Poland.

Here’s one of the appearances I made for TRT World.

Before that, Donald Trump visited Poland before heading to the G20 summit in Hamburg.

Holy carp! My Christmas article in the Guardian

Just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of visiting 12 nuns in their abbey some 20 minutes away from Krakow. They are saving the place by farming carp. You can check out the story under the link below.5184.jpg


Women only debate on TVN 24 BiŚ on abortion

It’s a format hardly seen on television: four women debating women’s issues. I’m glad to have been invited and to be able to speak my mind on women’s rights, an issue I really care about.

Here’s a link to the program aired on October 21 (in Polish).
