Lost in the North – S2.E4 Nordic stereotypes

:thought_balloon: What stereotypes and clichés are there about the Nordics, and are they really true? In this episode of Lost In The North recorded in Göteborg, Marcus is joined by Birk, Magdalena, Katariina, and Vilhem to discuss how Nordic populations perceive each other and the various misconceptions that exist about our countries. What lies behind the Sweden-Norway rivalry? What makes Danish people so “cool”? Is there truth to the cliché that Nordic people are somewhat closed off?

Nordljud News Weekend – Gothenburg 2023

In just a few days, the Nordljud News team will meet for a long weekend in 🇸🇪 Gothenburg!

Are you in Gothenburg from the 11-13 November and would like to join us? Make sure you scroll all the way down and fill in the form!

It has been over three years now since the first joint board meeting between Studentradion i Sverige and Studentradioen i Norge. This was the start of what then became Nordljud, The Nordic Studentradio network.

The News Team is the baby within the bigger project, as it´s only a few months old.

We first started developing the news concept a year ago, when we met in 🇳🇴 Bergen. This was also the first time we got to see many of our stations’ representatives in real life.

Broadcasting from Studentradioen i Bergen

In Bergen we brainstormed on how the Nordic Studentradio News concept should take shape.

At the beginning of 2023 we kicked off the work with a fantastic course by Sveriges Radio P3 and NRK P3 during which we got to learn from the pros how radio news is made in an engaging way.

Shortly after we started producing our own news, in our first episode one of our reporters interviewiewd the Prime Minsiter of Norway!

Since then we worked on improving the format, both when it comes to sound but also in regards to our website and social media.

The evolution of of Nordljud News graphics over the months

In just a few days, from the 11th to the 13th of November 2023, the Nordljud News Team will gather in Gothenburg for a long weekend of activities including team-building, talking about improvements and producing radio together.

It’s especially a time for us to return to the drawing board. What works well? What can be improved? How can we make our Nordic Studentradio News more interesting and relevant for our audience? Thanks to these questions we aim to continue developing Nordljud News, that to date is one of the few (or possibly the only) newsrooms that produces a Nordic-level news broadcast.

We would not have got this far if it wasn’t for all the studentradio members from the different stations who worked hard in building the project from scratch and dedicating time and passion into developing the collaboration.

Particular thanks to Nordic Culture Point for supporting us from the very start and providing the financial means for running the project and covering the costs of when we meet in person.

Nordljud is on a mission to find out what life is like for internationals who choose to study in Scandinavia, in particular in Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Oslo.

We will be publishing the results on Nordljud News and making a longer podcast reportage and share our findings, later this year.

This is a collaborative project together with Spionen, Gothenburg’s Student newspaper, Radio Nova – Oslo’s Studentradio and Globalnyt, an online magazine in Denmark.

Are you an international student in one of these three cities or do you know anyone that is? Then please help us by sharing the link to this post – it would help us a lot!

Thank you very much

Lost in the North – S2.E2 Freedom of speech in the Nordics

:speaking_head_in_silhouette: In this episode, join the team in discussing what freedom of speech looks like in the Nordic countries and how the summer’s events have reignited debates about what it should entail.

:studio_microphone: Magdalena Johnson and Alexander Maxia were at the Göteborg Book Fair and interviewed the hosts of the podcast ‘Norsken, svensken og dansken’. Listen to Hilde Sandvik, Åsa Lindeborg and Hassan Preisler explain how their Scandinavian project started and why their favourite discussion topic is – very fittingly – freedom of speech!
