    🎙️ About the podcast

    This podcast is a space for the international community in Finland to share their unique stories of what brought them to this beautiful country and how they are "mastering" the Finnish way of life. We are here to provide practical tips, learning opportunities, and a sense of belonging to our listeners.

    The podcast was founded in autumn 2019 by Petra and Jean, who met in 2017 while studying a Master's degree at the University of Jyväskylä. Jean decided to step away from the podcast in June 2021 as Petra continues with this project.
