Everyone has a story, everyone comes to Sweden for a reason be it love, economic or political. Martin tries to keep the interview as organic as possible to let the guest tell their story. In this first special episode Martin meets Lewis Lebolt who came to Sweden in 1973, it wasn't just a move of convenience. Lewis moved from Chicago Illinois in the United States to Sweden because he didn't want to be drafted into the U.S. Army and have to fight in the Vietnam war. It took Lewis years of careful planning to legally immigrate to Sweden, so please join Martin and Lewis in the studio to hear his amazing story.
