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 are two Australian expats living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

In 2017 we started our first podcast, Stuff What You Tell Me. This will be followed by “Free and Fearless: The Story of the First Parool Trial”, to be released in January 2019 and we are currently working extremely hard on the History of the Netherlands podcast.

Julian Smith grew up in the 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.
