I en stad (in a town) - season 1 & 2

Podcast and music

The podcast

I EN STAD (In a city) is a storytelling podcast for kids and their grown ups with stand alone episodes. There is a lot of music involved and songs that turned into grammy nominated albums.
The stories, the lyrics, the world and its inhabitants were created by me and the music was composed by Nils Berg.
We wanted the project to be something that kids and parents enjoy together, we want it to be something that parents can endure and love. This means our target audience is kids aged 4-10 and their parents – together.
It also means this is not for everyone – the music is jazz, the artists singing are indie and mainly known by a older audience.
The podcast has 20 regular episodes (30 min) and a bunch of special episodes where two characters Borgmästaren (The mayor) and his right hand man Pip are answering letters  from kids.

The concerts

Having all this music and amazing artists connected to the project the need of doing concerts felt urgent. We’ve done several concerts around Stockholm and Gothenburg – with a lot of play, animation, exciting guest appearances and storytelling. Send me a email, or visit our showpage (in swedish),  if you’re interested in booking us.


I love to meet up and talk film, music videos, children’s culture, games or life in general.  You’ll find me at any of the coffeshops around Södermalm, Stockholm or on discord or any other social media platform.

The song “Vi var trouble” (We were trouble) is a nostalgic trip back to the nighties and a mixture of Anjas and my own troublesome memories. It’s an ambitious zero budget production.
