Säg till om det är något speciellt du är intresserad av så kan jag försöka rekommendera något passande på svenska. Av ren nyfikenhet, hur svårt är det med olika dialekter när man lär sig svenska?

(Translation: Let me know if there’s anything specific you’re interested in and I’ll try to recommending something in Swedish. Out of curiosity, how hard is it with different dialects when trying to learn Swedish?)

I had to stop listening to it on the bus because of all the weird looks from me giggling.

Lately I’ve been falling asleep to The History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps. I’m 60 episodes in and have only gotten to the Stoics.

The Paris Review Podcast is great for poetry and short stories. I think they also pointed me to LeVar Burton Reads.

Other than that I follow a bunch of F1 podcasts, to keep up with the gossip in the off-season.

Oh, and Snedtänkt, the best podcast in Swedish you will probably never listen to. Topics include the subculture of Gothenburg, Jules Verne, 70’s pornos and anxiety sex, pilsner movies, and the dark history of amusement parks.

This might have been suggested before, but I think it would be nice to be able to buy badges to give to people. I don't post or comment much, but I visit hubski almost every day. There's many posts I wish I could badge, being able to buy them would allow me to show people my appreciation for their posts and comments AND for mk keeping the servers running.

Just a thought.

I just finished a book on Swedish architecture 1000-1800, this unbuilt fortification plan by Erik Dahlbergh from 1680 for Landskrona I found fascinating. The plan was to make it the southern capital after the annexation of Scania.

Congrats on the non-smoking, I just passed the three-week mark for the second (hopefully last!) time this year. Enjoy your time off!

Worth noting is that Venstre (left) is a liberal party positioned to the right of Senterpartiet (center party). This is why the left and right is governing together.

You might have seen this the last time you went, but in many places you can find shelters and a fireplace which you can use for free, although you might have to share it with strangers if others show up.

Around Skåne, you could look up Mölle/Kullaberg on the west coast, Simrishamn/Kivik/Stenshuvud on the east coast, or Söderåsen somewhere in between. I'd check out lake Åsnen south of Växjö, but I haven't really spent much time there myself. If you're going up the east coast, you could make a small detour and see Öland. Or, driving up the east coast of lake Vättern from Jönköping to Motala and you will see lots of nice places. Closer to Stockholm, I'm actually not so sure where to go, except out into the archipelago. I can ask someone who's more familiar with the area.
