Podcast 280: Football and Marius

This week, our good friend Heri Simonsen talks to Maurice Ross. Ross is a Scottish football (soccer) manager who is coaching the united Suduroy team, which merges three clubs on the southern island. While the three teams individually haven't had much success in the upper division of Faroese football, the merged team currently sits at fourth place in the EFFO league.

Then we'll hear some music from one of our favorite artists: Marius. He'll play "Shades", then we'll listen for a curious applause pattern common in the Faroe Islands.

Podcast 279: Maggie's on Nolsoy

This week, we travel back to Nolsoy to visit a cafe that has turned the small island of Nolsoy into a music destination.

Maggie's is actually located in the basement of a house on the island, and would seem like an unlikely place for a music venue. But, like so many other things on the Faroe Islands, it works brilliantly anyway.

We'll talk to the bar's owner and listen to some music and basically have a lot of fun.

Podcast 278: The Gay Whale Podcast

We've been doing this show for more than 8 years, and one thing we've learned is that the most popular podcasts are either about whales or gay rights. (Polish authors falsely claiming to be Faroese also do well, but that's another story.) So for years, the goal has been to do a podcast about gay whales because it would, we assume, produce amazing download numbers. This week, we find out if that's true.

On this episode, we talk to Eiler Fagraklett, the head of LGBT Foroyar about a children's book that features a whale that is... well... probably gay. We can't say for sure but, you know, probably. We'll read from the book and then talk briefly bout the state of LGBT rights in the Faroe Islands.

After that, we'll visit the newest tunnel in the Faroe Islands and see if its haunted. (Hint: it's not)

On this week's show, we attend a World Cup soccer (or football, if you're not American) match in Torshavn, The Faroe Islands took on Hungary in a surprisingly competitive match. We meet up with Skansin, the supporter's group for the national team, and march to the stadium before watching the match on a windy September evening.
