About Us

If you or your organisation is looking for innovative and modern ways to explore, learn about, communicate or exhibit any period of history, then contact us, and we’ll have a chat about what we can do!

Republic of Amsterdam Radio is a group of history nerds with a passion for telling stories, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 2017 we started our first podcast, Stuff What You Tell Me. This was followed by Free and Fearless: The Story of the First Parool Trial, the product of over a year of research made possible with help from Stichting Democratie en Media. Our latest project is the History of the Netherlands podcast.

Julian Smith grew up in Australia and the US, studied History and Philosophy of Science and has spent nine years giving tours of Amsterdam by foot, bicycle and boat. He moved to the Netherlands in 2009 to see what all the excitement was about. It was so exciting, that he is now officially Dutch.

Joe Wegecsanyi grew up in Australia and Germany, studied History and randomly procured his very own EU passport when he was 19. When he was 22 he decided to go travelling for a bit and, making his way from London to Berlin, stopped in Amsterdam to see what all the fuss was about. 10 years later and he has not made it to Berlin, nor does he even know where the exit is.

David Cenzer grew up in Sweden but left as a young adult, pursuing his university studies in San Francisco where he earned a degree in Photojournalism. He moved to Amsterdam by accident some 10 years ago and truly believes he has found his ‘home’ after many years of not knowing where it is. In David’s ideal world, a game of football would involve 22 players each playing with their own ball.
