There is something about silence. There is a conversational reflex, to fill the gaps of silence with something. Usually, it's not me who does that – it's my guest. My name is Kristoffer Triumf and I am a Swedish podcast host, writer and sometimes also a comedian. In VARVET INTL, I'll take on one guest a week for the rest of 2014. There will be musicians! Comedians! Authors! Chefs! Actors! And other interesting people in, and around, the global entertainment industry. In 2012, I started interviewing Swedish people in my podcast VÄRVET. Two and a half years later, I've recorded som 140 conversations – with Sweden's Prime Minister, rock stars, artists of all kinds, and so forth. Any day, these interviews have been downloaded 20,000,000 times and it keeps growing with a million a month. I am humble and grateful about that fact. And although I'll keep doing VÄRVET, it's time to take on new challenges. That is: VARVET INTL. I hope you want to follow me on my new journey with VARVET INTL. I hope you'll like it. Best, Kristoffer Triumf Vällingby, Sweden
