THE HUMANS INSIDE THE PODS
HOW IT STARTED
Back in 2017 I moved into a coliving House in he heart of Stockholm. I thought it would be for 3 months, I ended up staying 3 years.
This experienced impacted all aspects of my life and I now work within the coliving industry as a content creator, communications manager and community builder.
As much as I love my job, I noticed the voices of the residents are not always heard loud and clear and that's how I got the idea of the podcast. That, and the fact that I was missing my housemates and the endless conversations we would have at the dinner table.
I wondered if I could recreate these moments with residents from all around the world, experiencing coliving, its challenges and learnings in different places and ways.
My goal is to share stories about living life in community, the good stuff & the challenges, and democratise a new way of thinking about Home. I also like the idea of safekeeping these stories which mean so much to their protagonists.
The podcast launched at the end of August 2020 and I have now talked to over 40 people and counting. I am very much looking forward to exploring new places and hearing new stories! Join us!
I also send out a monthly-ish newsletter to keep you up to date with the latest episodes and what I've been up to in the world of Communities.

Support the Humans
This is a passion project which gives me great joy and has allowed me to learn a lot of new skills and meet many great people along the way.
It does takes a lot of time to look for new guests, edit and put everything together and does not bring any money in. It's ok, because it's a choice I make. To dedicate time to this. And it makes me happy. What makes me even happier...? To hear back from you.
So if you ever feel like you want to do something nice to say thanks or "good job"... I made a little list of suggestions:
Simply reach out to let me know what you thought. It means everything!
