my Swedish friend Malcolm Thulin on Europe's obsession with America & his budding career in comics.

Malcolm Thulin-Carpenter, who I met while abroad in the fall of 2016, joins me today for a lovely chat about recently marrying his longtime sweetheart, who actually proposed to him because he waited too long! Then, we get into the perception that countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark are the happiest in the world, and whether that actually holds up. Plus, we discuss Europe's obsession with American politics and pop culture, differences in American and European culture, his very popular comics Instagram account and why I regret not buying Bitcoin back in 2016.

Malcolm is a really talented digital artist, so please support his work here.
