In business news, the economic fallout from the Covid-19 virus continues to mount with a new report warning that GDP will shrink significantly this year.

Rank #15: Radio Sweden Weekly: Why do some people live in climate denial? Controversy on the eve of Nobels and a shift in Swedish politics?

Podcast cover

As the UN climate talks continue in Madrid, we examine scientific evidence for declaring a state of planetary emergency.

Climate denialism still exists, but who are these climate sceptics? A new book takes a closer look. And Moderate Party leader Ulf Kristersson said he would never stage talks with the leader of the Sweden Democrats - so why the U-turn this week when the pair meet on Wednesday? And with the Nobel laureates arriving in Stockholm, we meet one of the Swedish Bosnians who are upset over the awarding of the 2019 literature prize to Austrian Peter Handke.

Rank #16: Radio Sweden Weekly: failed Olympic bid no 11, landmark Facebook ruling, new Liberal leader, extended smoking ban, Sweden-Germany match

Podcast cover

Stockholm/Åre or Milan/Cortina? Ullenhag or Sabuni? Two make-or-break decisions dominating the news in Sweden this week.

We speak to the mayor of Åre who cried when it was announced that the Winter Olympics for 2026 would not go to Sweden. This was the 11th Olympic bid that the town has lost. Only one person is left in the leadership race for the Liberal Party. How will electing Nyamko Sabuni change the party and the Swedish political landscape? Plus: a landmark ruling that could change the use of social media platforms; the new, extended smoking ban that could change the scene in many outdoor cafés and restaurants; and Sweden is through to the quarter finals in the women's World Cup - we look ahead to this weekend's football game.
