SKAM

Join us for the ultimate SKAM nerd-off! This week, we’re delving into the pastel-coloured universe of cult Norwegian show “SKAM” with VICE writer Soren Peter Knudsen. Find out why the unconventional teen drama has taken the world by storm, why a US version would be oh-so-bad, and what the hell a “russbus” is. Serr. … Like The Snak on Facebook.

SKAM

HANG THE DJ

“I also think in the future, AI will make music for other AI.” — Ralf Christensen is music editor of Danish newspaper Information and one-half of cult podcast Album. This week, he joins The Snak for a chat about robot composers, music festivals, how the welfare state helps (and hinders) Scandinavian artists, and why it’s a bad thing when Danish radio only panders to pop.

“Poor, low-income communities have been doing home-steading for centuries. Why is this now a trend? Why is fried chicken a trend?” — Hungry for The Snak? We’re back! This week, host Lena Rutkowski digs into Copenhagen’s food scene with chef and writer Amanda Yee. Join us for a chat about the stories we tell with food, and the stories food tells about us.

THE HYGGE HYPE

“It’s just, sometimes, really fucking boring.” — Can you overdose on cosiness? In our Christmas special, hosts Lena Rutkowski and James Clasper share a mulled wine with author Michael Booth and mull over the Danish concept of hygge: the instagrams, the industry, and the issues with culturally-regimented cosiness.

AARHUS STREET STORIES

This week, James Clasper goes on a walking tour of Denmark’s second city with David Rickerby--an English ex-con who has lived on the streets of Aarhus for the past 20 years and published a trilogy of novels about “the crimes he committed, the places he worked and the people he met.

AARHUS STREET STORIES

SECRET COPENHAGEN

Does a well-trodden city like Copenhagen have any secrets left? This week, James Clasper chats to writer Austin Sailsbury about his new book "The 500 Hidden Secrets of Copenhagen", the joys (and pains) of winter-bathing, and how the Danish capital has transformed from a beer town into cocktail-bar heaven.

SECRET COPENHAGEN

DRINK UP

This really should have been called the "they just voted for Brexit and James wants to get drunk" edition. It’s the day after the historic Brexit vote, and British host James Clasper fears his ability to live in Denmark might one day be jeopardised. But can he become a Dane instead? Probably not. This year, the Danish government introduced a revised citizenship test that reads like an ultra-complicated pub quiz -- packed with niche military history, odd legal facts, and questions only the most avid of Scandinavian cinema buffs could answer. To make it more fun, we turned it into a drinking game. Hosts James and Lena are joined by British comedian Adrian Mackinder and Denmark's cartoonist of the year, Stine Spedsbjerg. Will the Anglo-Saxons triumph over the Dane? Will they get blind drunk? Or will they all get deported for their terrible knowledge of Danish society and culture? Listen and

WHOSE DENMARK?

The ‘Whose Denmark?’ Edition Earlier this year, a campaign poster for the radical right-wing populist party Dansk Folkeparti cropped up all over Copenhagen. It depicted an all-white group of Danish people - and a badly photoshopped dog - under the tagline "Our Denmark - there is so much that we need to protect." In response, Alexander Nicolas Truelsen created a parody poster depicting a multiethnic group of Danes under the same headline. It quickly went viral. In The Snak's debut episode, Alex chats to James Clasper and Lena Rutkowski about Denmark's integration issues and why posters with real dogs are better. Like us on Facebook.
