In this week's episode: lay judges resign in 'snippa' case, tips for tax season, how to save money as food prices hit new highs, interview with Taiwan's representative, how the Sweden Democrats have grown more radical.


In the latest episode of our Sweden in Focus podcast, host Paul O’Mahony is joined by guest Jonathan Leman from the Expo Foundation, as well as panelists Becky Waterton, Emma Löfgren and James Savage

In this week’s episode we discuss why two lay judges (nämndemän) resigned after a highly controversial court ruling that hinged on an interpretation of the word snippa.

With tax declaration season soon upon us we’ll provide some handy tips to get you through it.


We’ll also talk about how food prices in Sweden just keep on rising to new record levels and how you can save money.

In the latest instalment of our ambassador series, we have an interview with Taiwan’s representative to Sweden, Klement Gu.

Finally, for our main topic today we chat to Jonathan Leman about how and why the far-right Sweden Democrats have become more radical since being welcomed in from the cold by the parties now in government.
