About Breandáin O’Shea I’m a freelance journalist based in Berlin. I’ve been working in Germany for over 20 years and produced and presented two weekly programmes for the English programme of Deutsche Welle Radio and Online in Bonn, before moving to Berlin in 2013. While initially I am an arts and music specialist, I’ve worked for diverse magazine and media outlets, including the ABC, CBC, DW and the BBC. I’m fluent in German and have a good working knowledge of both Italian and French. I also have access to production studios in Berlin. Additionally, I am a guest lecturer on arts journalism at Berlin's University of the Arts (UdK), Goethe Institute and Stavanger University Norway. In 2018 I launched Tall Poppies, The Podcast, which profiles Australian luminaries living abroad.
