Swedish Speaker

Twice in the last six months, the speaker of the Swedish Parliament stopped by the University of South Florida. The second most powerful man in Sweden’s government sat down with students for lengthy conversations both before and after the U.S. Presidential election. We’ll get some of his thoughts on the changing direction of politics, both in here in America and across Europe, on the next University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
