JellyBean 047 with Mads Astvad

There is very little rotten in the state of Denmark. I got Mads Astvad of scanfoam to come and chat to me about everything Danish. He didn’t do that. He had his own ideas. Brilliant.

Denmark; whats not to like?
They make all their energy sustainably.
They are now number 4 on the Human Development Index.
Copenhagen is always there or thereabouts in the various worlds most liveable cities lists.
It has the worlds lowest gap between rich and poor.
They like bicycles.
This is all good.

What about the medicine?
They do things differently in Denmark. And difference is good. There is a very different role for some specialities in Denmark and indeed across several Nordic Countries.

Whats the #FOAMed like? Have a listen and then go and visit scanfoam.org and then go and check @mr_astvad out on ye olde twitter and then try to pronounce Astvad properly!
