Occupied / Nobel Podcast
About This Show
Show Info: Three Americans and a Norwegian discuss the political-dramas "Occupied" and "Nobel". Created by Jo Nesbø, the TV show "Occupied" (or "Okkupert" in Norwegian) depicts a fictional near future in which Russia, with support from the EU, occupies Norway to restore its oil production. In "Nobel" two stories carefully intertwine as a returning soldier and family man becomes a pawn in a political international game. As the stakes grow higher he is forced to discover just how far one should go in the name of peace. Examining through cultural, geopolitical, and thematic lenses, the four share their opinions on these series.
