The contract a good receipt

Eventually the podcast "Doomsday" with Emelie Schultz and Oskar Hållkvist won. The podcast deals with the downfall of the earth and addresses various scenarios that may put a stop to humanity.

“This year's winners have shown samples of fighting glow, goal awareness and strong will to develop. When the end is near we know that the winner will stand on solid legs. Going from clarity to clarity is obvious for this year's winner”, reads the jury's motivation.

– Very funny. The contract is a good receipt that someone is interested in what we do and wants to hear more, says Oskar Hållkvist.
