From Norway to the World Podcast

Norway podcast

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. This could be a fellow foreigner giving their perspective on expat life, or a Norwegian expert in an interesting area.


What's a podcast? If you're new to podcasts, don't worry! A podcast is just like a radio show, except you can listen to it anytime, anywhere.
