LRT English is partnering up with Lithuanian Dream to bring you a weekly English-language podcast. Visitors will be able to find a wrap-up of the week's episode and also listen to it directly on LRT.lt.

"Lithuania has a flourishing economy, a burgeoning cultural scene, and a surprisingly prominent international profile in world affairs,” said Rūta Naujokaitė, host of the podcast.

“However, our Baltic homeland remains an enigma to a lot of our friends outside the country. We are happy to join LRT English in continuing our goal of bringing Lithuania to the world and the world to Lithuania,” she added.

Lithuanian Dream Podcast was launched a year ago, and is run by Rūta Naujokaitė, Sean Donovan, Milda Šukytė, and Gabrielė Valodskaitė.

With 40 weekly installments already under their belt, the team has previously interviewed key political, business and cultural figures, and provided explainers of what makes Lithuania the way it is.

Featured guests included the poet Tomas Venclova, the author Ruta Šepetys, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius, and a co-founder of the Lithuanian tech success story Vinted, Milda Mitkutė. You can find all the previous episodes here.
