Ep 25 - Our foreign correspondent with Linnea Dunne
Did you know that Swede's lived in other countries, too? LOL, yes of course you did. But, sometimes it's easy to forget that there is another side to being Swede-ish. I'm delighted to welcome Linnea Dunne, author, journalist, columnist and general all-round wordsmith, to the Swede-ish podcast. Originally from Sweden, Linnea now lives in Ireland. In this week's episode of the podcast we talk about whether or not life is greener on the other side of the fence of Swede-ish-ness, seeing Sweden from an outsider's perspective, and female migration in general. Head to our weblink to find all the ways to read Linnea's work and read more.

Ep 21, Natasha Webster - Intersectional immigrants
