For this episode I had the pleasure to meet Ștefan Ionescu-Ambrosie - a Romanian writer and researcher currently based in Barcelona. His work was published among others in KAJET Journal, Hinterlands Magazine, [Inter]Sections Journal and Norient. Ștefan is also an author of praznumen - a blog dedicated to writings on cinema, books, video games, music and dance. During our Kitchen Conversations we mainly discussed two cultural trends in contemporary Romania: The New Wave and manele subculture, both in relation to mental health and intergenerational trauma.
