PODCAST: How to combat segregation, and is this Sweden's ugliest ever election?

A weekly, behind-the-scenes look at the biggest news stories in Sweden with the journalists who know them best. Every Saturday with The Local Sweden.


In the latest episode of our Sweden in Focus podcast, host Paul O’Mahony is joined by Stockholm University sociologist Andrea Voyer, as well as regular panelists Becky Waterton and Richard Orange.

Three Brits who all live in major cities and married Swedes give the same advice 3 times. There is no one who has ANY different experience that could be on this podcast in the whole of Sweden?
