Theme Discussions

Hans and Jonatan brainstorm themes and headlines. Audience-pleasing topics like Hotel Breakfast and The Worst Guests are mixed with more demanding discussions about leadership and hotel security.

Is it a kitchen table or a podcast studio?

Both, the studio is portable, and in some episodes, we meet our guests at hotels.
