This episode of Budacast, Hungary’s first English-language podcast, features an interview with former US Ambassador to Hungary Donald Blinken and his Hungarian-American wife, Vera Blinken, who escaped communist Hungary as a child, only to return as the wife of the top American diplomat in the country in the 1990s.
Host Drew Leifheit interviewed the Blinkens about their book “Vera and the Ambassador, Escape and Return.”
In the book they recount their experiences working to advance US interests in Hungary in the early years after the political changes the country underwent in 1990.
