The Newbie Guide to Sweden Podcast


01x06 Newly arrived in Sweden - first impressions and studenten!

Season 1, Ep. 7

It's a week until Swedish Midsommar and it is also the final episode of Season 1 of The Newbie Guide to Sweden podcast - all about life in Sweden as an expat!

Thank you for listening to the podcast so far, there will be plenty more expat personal stories and interviews during season 2!

To wrap up this season, I talk to a freshly-arrived Newbie, who also happens to be my good mate. Enjoy hearing Josh's first impressions of Sweden, including work cultures, friendliness, snus, lös godis and Swedish pronunciations. We've all been here.

We also briefly discuss Studenten and the bizarre traditions surrounding this rite of passage for teenage Swedes!

Big ups for Andrew from episode 1 taking on the Vätternrunden. More info on that can be found at:
