Episode 2 - Simon


In the second episode of Humans of SDU, you will meet Simon. With an American dad and a Danish mom, Simon shares his perspective on living and studying in these two countries.  Besides that, he shares his “dangerous” travel story from Turkey. Make sure to listen to the very end otherwise you’ll miss his fishy joke!

  • What does he miss most from the US?
  • How is student life different in Denmark than in the US?
  • Where else did he live besides Denmark and the USA?

How did we find Simon?

Funnily enough, Simon was actually our podcast test bunny! When we first borrowed our equipment from the university in December 2019, we wanted to have a test recording before we would do an actual one we could publish. And who better for this than Anna’s adventurous classmate! Therefore, during a Christmas dinner with some beers, we started recording. Unfortunately, the choice of beverage made the episode unfit to be published so we invited him back when we started Humans of SDU for real!

Portrait of Simon

“When I came to SDU, they also had all these things like student parties and so but it wasn’t that crazy. And that is quite refreshing to me. I like it. The most important thing is the education and not having a super nice pool.”


While the first recording was not fit to be published, we managed to sneak in a bit of it – Simon’s “fishy” joke. Make sure to tune in to the second-ever Humans of SDU episode and listen all the way to the end to hear the punchline!
