    Ep. 9 - Bikes, trains and ... people? The Dutch cycling culture

    Ep. 9 - Bikes, trains and ... people? The Dutch cycling culture

    On today's show we dive into the incredible Dutch cycling culture. We look at everything from the history of the bike, to the way the Dutch have facilitated biking through daring infrastructure. To sort it all out, I talk with Chris and Melissa Bruntlett, cycling experts who moved to the Netherlands from Canada to live the Dutch cycling life. And, of course, you'll hear from Dutchomter Merijn Soeters.

    They have two books: Building the Cycling City and Curbing Traffic (to be released in June)

    Ep. 8 - There is no shame in fat

    Ep. 8 - There is no shame in fat

    Fat – it’s the age-old ‘hot’ topic, but it’s a sensitive one too. Why? Because there are still incredible stigmas around being overweight and obese and it’s about time that we deal with it. 
    Fat is not only vital for our evolutionary existence, when it’s in balance it contributes to a health daily life. But when it gets out of balance, it seems to almost control us. In today’s episode I talk with Dr. Mariette Boon. She is a doctor and researcher who studies fat – she literally wrote the book on it (click here). We cover everything from why fat is important to the serious societal and health implications of fat-shaming and stigmas about overweight and obesity. Of course, you’ll hear from the Dutchometer, Merijn Soeters.

    Ep. 7 - How the Dutch weigh-in against Corona

    Ep. 7 - How the Dutch weigh-in against Corona

    In this episode we look at overweight and obesity in the Netherlands with Dr. Karen Freijer. Just how skinny are the Dutch? What are the health ramifications of overweight and obesity? And why did this all become even more important with the coronavirus pandemic? Karen takes us through it all – including why we need to get rid of stigma around overweight and obesity. And, of course, we get input from the Dutchomter Merijn Soeters.

    Ep. 6 - How the Dutch Ditch Choice Stress

    Ep. 6 - How the Dutch Ditch Choice Stress

    We make on average 35,000 choices per day! The majority are subconscious, but what about the rest? Choice stress refers to the fatigue we feel when we have too many options to choose from – and even too many choices to make. But the Dutch might just have a solution. I talked to three experts to get the full scoop. You’ll hear from Happiness Pyschologist Josje Smeets, as well as Lifestyle Design Podcast hosts Tim Daalderop and Ruben Klerkx. And of course, you’ll hear from our very own Dutchometer, Merijn Soeters.

    Ep. 5 - Work, life and balance - A podcast to ponder for the holidays

    Ep. 5 - Work, life and balance - A podcast to ponder for the holidays

    In part two of the work/life balance theme we look at the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on work and life. Does working from home affect introverts and extroverts differently? Should we try to keep barriers between work and life? And - how two freelancers used the coronavirus to finally try a shorter work week. Spoiler alert - the freelancers are me and Merijn.

    I welcomed back  Josje Dikkers, who was on the last episode, to explain more about the coronavirus, barriers and work/life balance for freelancers. Josje studies work/life balance and lectures at the University of Utrecht.

Great way to meet the Dutch

Informative and fun podcast for anyone who is interested in health and lifestyle. Especially the combination of interviews with experts and immigrants is original.

A Dutch perspective in life

For everyone looking for a Dutch perspective on life. Includes historic, scientific and regular “man/woman om the street” view points. Even if you are Dutch there will be something interesting in this internationally focussed podcast. Recommended!

Fun and informative

Fun and informative podcast! The listener can hear Jillian O'Mara is excited to be in the Netherlands when she explains the research material. She uses some great examples to illustrate the vast information. Also appreciate the different input from Dutch and American experts and the 'Dutch-o-Meter'.
