Show Notes

Chris Condon joined the Budapest Week just over a year after we launched. He started as a reporter, worked his way up to News Editor, and eventually served as Editor-in-Chief.

Chris belongs to a generation of journalists, Hungarians and foreigners, who cut their teeth reporting for the Budapest Week.

He also worked for the paper long after I left, which means he was able to share a few stories I hadn't heard. For example, moving offices and discovering a gun concealed in a wall cavity since 1944.

Chris went on to write for Business Week and the Financial Times. A few years back, he moved back to the United States to work for Bloomberg, covering the Federal Reserve.

However, Chris took a little bit of Hungary with him to the US: his wife Dora, and two daughters, Siobhan and Shannon.
