The third episode of the All Points North podcast features writer and political pundit Maryan Abdulkarim, who explores the thorny issue of diversity in the Finnish media after a media monitoring project suggested there is room for improvement on that score.
We also look at strikes and industrial action across the Finnish economy, interviewing a professional cleaner who took part in industrial action last week in defence of his Sunday bonuses -- as well as an MP who thinks they should not be written into law.
We also discuss Metro delays, the latest updates on the case of a Finnish man who died in Uganda and the sale of iconic Finnish booze brand Koskenkorva, as well as the extreme cold that has made Finland shiver this week.
This week's podcast was presented by Mark B. Odom and Egan Richardson with guest Maryan Abdulkarim. Reporters were Lydia Taylerson and Ronan Browne, our producer was Lydia Taylerson and our sound technician was Laura Koso.
