Did you catch the latest episode of Podkäst?

This week journalist Marianne Sundholm from Svenska Yle joins the discussion on workplace discrimination, after a ministry study highlighted again how difficult it is for people with foreign-sounding names to even get a job interview, compared to people with typically Finnish-sounding names.

We’re also talking about reporting the news in Sweden – Marianne’s new assignment – and what she’s looking forward to covering for audiences in Finland.

And two-time Paralympic athlete Esa-Pekka Mattila takes us on a tour of Helsinki by wheelchair and finds challenges where old meets new in the Finnish capital. Spoiler alert: cobblestones are the enemy of wheelchairs!
