What The Denmark | Danish Culture for Expats, Internationals and Danes

  • Publisher: Cofruition
  • Total Episodes: 8

Danish culture can be pretty confusing, especially if you are not from Denmark. This podcast is on a mission to resolve cultural confusion in the country, and help anyone understand how people in this unique country think and behave. Co-hosts Sam Floy (British podcaster, “The Outsider”) and Josefine Volqvartz (Danish TV journalist, “The Insider”) speak to experts and members of the public to understand and explain why something so normal in Danish culture is confusing to outsiders. Rather than simply point fun, or say something like “Danes have an ironic sense of humour” we go deep, by speaking to experts to explain why. Importantly, this show is as much for Danes as it is non-Danes. What The Denmark is an educational, entertaining and inclusive show where we take a curious look at things that seem normal in Denmark, and get to the bottom of why. The show is aimed at everyone with a connection to Denmark, and people around the world looking to learn more about the happiest country in the world. If you’ve ever felt that you want to understand more about Denmark and Danish culture, then this is the podcast for you! Learn more at

  • Publisher: LibriVox
  • Total Episodes: 53

Oliver Twist is an 1838 novel by Charles Dickens. It was originally published as a serial.Like most of Dickens’ work, the book is used to call the public’s attention to various contemporary social evils, including the workhouse, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals.

(Summary from wikipedia)

Reginald by Saki

  • Publisher: Loyal Books
  • Total Episodes: 15

Saki was the pen name of the British author Hector Hugh Munro (1870 – 1916). His witty, biting and occasionally odd short stories satirised Edwardian culture. Saki is considered a master of the short story and has been compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker as well as Noel Coward and Oscar Wilde (who clearly influenced Saki). His first collection of short stories, Reginald, was published by Methuen Press in 1904 though these stories first appeared in the ‘Westminster Gazette’. The stories in this collection are a foil for allowing the jaded and insider/outsider figure of Reginald to comment on some ridiculous or provincial attitudes prevalent in upper class Edwardian society, although one can easily recognize these same attitudes in our society today. Long popular and well known, Saki’s brilliant humour is as enjoyable now as it was almost a century ago.
