Arne Andersson was one of the first people I met when I arrived in Sweden.

In this podcast, Arne and I speak about his experiences growing up in Sweden, whether conscription is good or bad and as well his extensive experience in Afghanistan.

Arne spent three different tours in this nation and has a unique insight into the disaster that has befallen the nation since.

There is much to this podcast, in it, you can expect to learn about…

  • Arne’s early experiences + getting stabbed.
  • Arne’s experiences with the Swedish Military in Afghanistan over three tours.
  • The significance of Jiu Jitsu in his life.
