I must admit that I was very surprised when I received an e-mail from Spotify where I was asked to record a live podcast when they arranged their ”End of the Year Party” for their employees in Sweden.
I’m not a big player - but Spotify sure is.
All their staff got to choose between different interests to match them to different dinner venues - and the ones that showed an extra interest in winter, skiing and mountains ended up at a after ski themed dinner party where I did a short live podcast to entertain them between courses.
My guest for the interview was a friend of mine - mountain guide Carl Lundberg.
Carl is interesting in many ways: first of all because he works as a mountain guide of course, but also because he combined mountain guide training with a PhD in Robotics.
But the main reason why I wanted to talk to him is that he started his company Skitouring Scandinavia three years ago where he now offers first class ski touring adventures with minimal carbon emissions - choosing trains over airplanes.
And yeah…since Spotify is the very definition of a global, international company the interview and episode is in English.
