Podcast 317: Let's Play Gekkur

Photo Credit: KVF.FO

On this week's show, we play Gekkur. It's kind like a national lottery mixed with bingo, mixed with Dialing for Dollars, mixed with a PBS pledge drive. Is it confusing? Yep. Are there lots of rules? Oh, yeah. Is it a fun way to pass an hour? Definitely.

Introducing: Home and Away



Home and Away is a show that documents the life of foreigners in the Faroe Islands. On each show, host Stella Zachariassen, a Faroese woman of Sri Lankan descent, talks to someone who immigrated to the Faroes and asks what their lives were like in their country of origin, and how they've adapted to life on the islands. We'll be featuring episodes of Home and Away in the Faroe Islands Podcast feed for the next few months.

On this first episode, Stella talks to  Ved Nagersheth from Mauritius. We hope you enjoy these programs. As always, you can listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Podcast 316: Volleyball, Volunteerism, and Vexing Trees



This week's podcast features an interview with Sandra Brunke, she's a woman from Germany who helps volleyball players from around the world find placement at colleges in places like the USA and Canada. She was interviewed by Oli Samuelsen on FM 1.

We also hear an extremely short interview with our friend Darius Lewis after KI Klaksvik won the top league in Faroese football (soccer).

Then we walk through a confusing set of woods that can confound a foreigner, like the host of this podcast, but are actually quite common in the Faroes.

Podcast 315: Dan Olsen




On this podcast, we talk to singer/songwriter Dan Olsen about how he went from football (soccer) to music and then from the Faroes to Austrailia to London. We'll also her a sample of his new song, "Still Be Gone." If you'd like to hear the whole tune, you can listen on the video at the top of the page.

Then, in honor of Halloween, we revisit the spooky tunnels north of Klaksvik, do some beatboxing, and... maybe... free some troubled spirits?

Podcast 314: Darius Lewis in the Faroe Islands

This week, we catch up with Darius Lewis, the American striker playing for KI Klaksvik. When we last spoke in January, Lewis was preparing to move from his home in Florida to the Faroe Islands. Now that he's had a few months to settle in, we ask what it's like to play football (soccer) so far from home and how life in the Faroes is treating him.

After that, we stand underneath the newest traffic light in the Faroe Islands.

At the end of the interview, we mention a Dutch TV story about Darius. You can find that story here.
