[Swedish: Two hundred and fifty-nine – It’s Darin!]

Fika, flat packs and fancy cars are all things that we can thank Sweden for. We are also very grateful for their pop music industry. One of our favourite Swedes is Darin and he took some time out of his morning to say hello!

Michael and Io had a chat with this out-and-proud singer, who has been making music since debuting as the Idol runner-up in 2004. Everything’s on the table – the beginning, finding a path through the industry, singing in Swedish and coming out.

Plus, Michael and Io scheme to keep Darin in Oz!

Check out the full interview in a special podcast coming soon.
