Welcome everyone to the Life in Norway Show. I'm your host David Nikel. Every few weeks, we are going to take a deep dive into Norwegian society, culture and lifestyle.

Most episodes I'm joined by someone for an in-depth chat. Usually, this is a fellow foreigner giving their perspective on expat life and their relocation story. Everyone has a different experience, and we can all benefit from hearing multiple perspectives.

Sometimes, I like to mix it up a little by welcoming a Norwegian on to the show! I do this when I find an expert in an interesting area.
