Marco Marchica, Alberto Segantini
May 21, 2021 • 59 MIN
Episode 10 of Talking With Willie (and Tom) is an episode for lovers of the Beautiful Game. Football, soccer, Calcio, foci, whatever you call it, is a universal language. And football is what brought Willie and Tom together with our two very special guests this week. Alberto Segatini and Marco Marchica both hail from the north of Italy, one of the most football-crazed countries in the entire world. Together they all play for Budapest Celtic, the number one expat league in all of Budapest. Join these four friends as they chop it up about the hated European Superleague, the Italian game versus the English, what it’s like to play football in a foreign country, and some extra chat about bio organic dynamite, the emotion of oceans, and some untold tales from life in Budapest.

Talking w/ Willie and Tom aka TWAT is back for another pan-European discussion. A philosophical episode this week with questions about moral relativity and whether or not the sins and virtues of our past heroes should be judged by the values of the present day. Willie fills us in on his last two weeks voyaging through the lands of ancient Moorish al-Andalus, while Tom explains why and how he bought a literal mind control device. Plenty more chit-chat about the past, future, and for all but the most fleeting of moments, the present.

Today Willie is talking with Tom all the way from sunny spain. Come join this long over due catch up call as Willie and Tom discuss their respective trips to Dalmatia and Andalucía, enjoy some traditional wine from their respective destinations, ponder the future of travel, determine whether or not “The Alchemist” is a good book or a load of nonsense, critique the Chinese communist party, and prepare for their trip to Georgia (the country) in June. And more ... much more in fact. Enjoy!
Eddie and Emma Lovett
April 2, 2021 • 115 MIN
For lucky episode number 7 Willie is talking to international web camming super stars Eddie and Emma Lovett. Eddie and Emma aka Edvin and Marija met in Arizona a decade ago, completely oblivious to the fact that both their families emigrated from Yugoslavia during the war in the 1990s. Since meeting they’ve been married, exiled from states, moved to Croatia and then Hungary and have had their lives as celebrity sex workers documented by HBO. But above all else these two soulmates are just incredibly interesting people to talk to. Their conversation with Willie runs the gamut: from experiences tripping on DMT, why threesomes are easier in Arizona than anywhere else, stories of rescuing flea ridden dogs on the streets of Croatia and why the Sphinx is really a worm hole portal to another dimension. Enjoy!
Ádám Szedlacskó
March 25, 2021 • 56 MIN
Today Willie is talking with Szedlacskó Ádám the owner of Budapest’s world renowned Flex Gym. Since opening his shrine to body building in 2010, Ádám has found unparalleled success, attracting celebrity members such as The Rock, Jamie Foxx and a seemingly infinite number of professional weight lifters. But unquestionably the most illustrious member of Flex is none other than than Arnold Schwarzenegger himself! Which is fairly poetic considering Ádám’s dreams of one day owning his own gym were born when he read one of Arnie’s books as a young lad. Now, thirty years later, he counts him as a mentor, confidant, chess partner and close friend. Truly inspirational!
Flow State, Tokaj Region, Elon Musk & Stoic Mediation
March 19, 2021 • 132 MIN
Willie and Tom step through the doors of perception to discuss the concept of ‘flow’ and whether or not we, as humans, are destined to chase our death wish. Elon Musk, Aldous Huxley and David Foster Wallace feature prominently, and after a downright rigamarole of technological schizophrenics, Matty Poulton and Marecki call in from London and Berlin. Join these 4 friends for Episode 5 of Talking With Willie: a pan-European discussion on stoic mediation and creative fulfillment in the age of hyper communication.

Willie and Tom sit down for a night of whiskey tasting shepherded by a man known throughout the capitals of Central Europe as Whiskey Barlang János. In addition to his love for Smokey, oaky liquid gold, WBJ is a professional water polo player and budding furniture magnate who has treaded the jelly fish laden seas off the west coast of Australia and created havoc in the pools of greater Cyprus. Join these three increasingly intoxicated friends as they discuss the gritty secrets of Budapest night life, love and loathing in a lockdown and dreams distilled in Tennessee. Enjoy!
Teqball Edition
March 11, 2021 • 36 MIN
Teqball, the sport of the future. It’s soccer, it’s volleyball, it’s tennis, it’s ping pong, it’s a game from the matrix. And most of all it’s a hell of a hilariously good time. Oh yeah, and it’s Hungarian. Today Tom and Willie are broadcasting live from Teqball world headquarters. Tune in for a chat with fellow Budapest.fm host Attila, who moonlights as the “whatever his title is at teqball” as well as rapid fire interviews with some of the best young Hungarian athletes – male and female. One of them even faced down Ronaldinho!
