It’s been over thirty years since Glenn has been to Finland.
He was there as a young man, a college student hitchhiking around. It was at that time when Glenn discovered and fell in love with authentic sauna.
This upcoming trip to Finland is jam packed with everything sauna.
Glenn will be visiting at least 17 different special saunas around Finland. During these visits, he will be sitting on the sauna bench with very important and significant people surrounding sauna.
He will be recording most all of these interviews for Sauna Talk podcast.
Saunatimes values your input!
We would love to have your voice as part of these Sauna Talk interviews.
Please list questions you’d like Glenn to ask our guests for Sauna Talk podcast. Glenn will also be writing various feature articles during his visit. You can email [email protected], or type in the comments section below. Please list the sauna or guests’ name, if appropriate.
Thank you for helping us build a list of topics and questions for Sauna Talk guests!

Do you know someone from a media outlet?
Glenn will be honored to represent authentic sauna by writing a piece for a publication. The story is compelling. We are on the cusp of an urban public sauna revival, and a sauna revolution! We are all feeling it. It is great to help share the awesomeness of authentic sauna with others.
As you know as a reader of Saunatimes, we are committed to the authentic.
From Glenn: “Many Saunatimes readers have been fans of good sauna for a long time. It is exciting that sauna is becoming a bigger deal. People used to make fun of us, now they want to join us on the bench.”
This trip is a celebration of the Authentic! Thank you for joining along.
