This episode's guest Anders comes from the very south of the very north of Europe, namely from Lund in Sweden. We talk about inter-Scandinavian communication, a (not so) Swedish Chef, what makes the Swedes "sing", the definite way to mark definiteness, the assimilation of loan words, the rise of a new pronoun, somewhat bizarre traditions, and why many Swedes don't pronounce Anders' first name correctly.
