In the previous episode of What the Denmark, we covered the theory on making friends in Denmark and why it can be more challenging than elsewhere.
In this episode, we leave behind the theory and dig deeper into the practical advice.
Our guests include Ana Sofia, a student from Portugal, and Emilie Møllenbach and Camila Vicenci who are a successful Dane/non-Dane friendship.
The episode starts with hearing the struggles that Ana Sofia has with reaching out and connecting with Danes.
Sam and Josefine then take a look at "The Strength of Weak Ties" and how the public and private spheres are quite distinct in Denmark.
We then hear from the successful friendship of Emilie and Camila, and how they can inspire others to make friends in Denmark.
Sam and Josefine finish with practical tips from research and experience. Spoiler alert: if you want to make friends with Danes - invite them around for a wine tasting!

What The Denmark | Danish Culture for Expats, Internationals and Danes
Danish culture can be pretty confusing, especially if you are not from Denmark.
This podcast is on a mission to resolve cultural confusion in the country.
Co-hosts Sam Floy (British podcaster, "The Outsider") and Josefine Volqvartz (Danish TV journalist, "The Insider") speak to experts and members of the public to understand and explain why something so normal in Danish culture is confusing to outsiders.
Rather than simply point fun, or say something like "Danes have an ironic sense of humour" we go deep, by speaking to experts to explain why.
Importantly, this show is as much for Danes as it is non-Danes.
What The Denmark is an educational, entertaining and inclusive show where we take a curious look at things that seem normal in Denmark, and get to the bottom of why.
If you've ever felt that you want to understand more about Denmark and Danish culture, then this is the podcast for you!
