Hi everyone,

First of all - a big congrats. You are receiving the very first What The Denmark newsletter! In years to come you can tell your friends "I was there from the start" 😀

Quick update on the launch

What The Denmark went live last week on Thursday. The trailer video has been viewed ~20,000 times across different platforms.


You can see it here if you'd like.

In its first few days, the show has already become one of the top Society & Culture podcasts in Denmark, which is pretty nice to see


This week's episode

Making friends (Part 1): How coconuts and peaches help explain Danish friendships


Josefine and I talk about how some unique characteristics of Danish culture have led Danes to (in general) prefer a small number of deep friendships, and how this can feel exclusionary for people trying to "break in" compared to elsewhere in the world.

You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcast platforms.

Help spread the word?

If you've subscribed to this newsletter I hope this means you like what we're doing with the podcast!

At this early stage, getting more people listening to episodes is the best way for us to grow the podcast and be able to make more episodes.

Two things you can do to help:

  1. Write a review on Apple Podcasts: a star rating is great; a short, written review is even better 🙏
  2. Tell a friend!: everyone loves a personalised podcast recommendation 😎

Thanks again for your support so far, and questions/ comments/ feedback - just hit reply!

Happy Friday,
