Marianna Deinyan is a freelance journalist, host and podcast-host and lives in Cologne. She mainly works for the WDR, but also for the Deutschlandfunk Nova as well as Audible.
Marianna was born in Yerevan in 1992, about half a year after Armenia left the Soviet Union. Her family moved to Germany due to the lack of perspectives in Armenia. She has been visiting Armenia regularly and did a research on the departure of many young Armenians. In August 2021 she visited the country shortly after the second war in Nagorno-Karabakh and made the podcast “Heimatmysterium” about it.
