    • Society & Culture

There's a good chance you've never thought much about the type of duvet you have.


But there's actually quite a lot of interesting history, science and culture bound up in the different approaches to co-sleeping, both in Denmark and around the world.


In this episode Sam and Josefine speak to people around the world about their experience of using duvets.


In Denmark it's common for couples sleeping on the same double bed to each have their own separate duvet(!)


In many parts of the world this is unheard of - and suggests that there is a lack of intimacy between the partners.


This first episode of What The Denmark we take a deep dive into something you may never have considered - whether you should try using a shared duvet or separate duvets when you go to bed.


Featuring interviews with historians, scientists and a variety of different Danes and Internationals, you'll no doubt think about your co-sleeping arrangements differently after listening!
