Starting out in a new country is tough. We know, we’ve done it, too.

From figuring out where you get your groceries to finding a job, how do you even know where to begin? Well, we’re going to try and help.

What started out as a digital community has transformed into a weekly podcast listened to by thousands across the world. The Swede-ish Podcast is a series of conversations about the paradox of life between two cultures. If you’ve ever found yourself immersed in a foreign country or embedded in a new culture you’ll know what we’re talking about. That cognitive dissonance one feels with a foot in two, or three, or four, or five different cultures. Clashes, crashes, booms and bits of cultural identity flying all over the place.

The podcast peels back the layers of life in Sweden for first and second generation immigrants and short-term residents. Every Tuesday a new episode lands focusing on a different topic or current affair. Your hosts, Kat Trigarszky and Jill Leckie, digest the theme from the point of view of the Swede-ish lens.

Newbie or native? Or, neither-ish. We’re Swede-ish…
