Podcast 254: Faroese Ham

For many years, the host of this podcast has driven past this rather nondescript building and wondered, "What's going on in there." This week, we find out.

On the show, we spend time with some Faroese hams, and an American who started a company that offers remote services to ham radio operators. And for those of you who say there's not enough Morse code on these podcasts, your prayers are answered.

As always, you can listen on iTunes, on our media player, and on Stitcher Smart Radio. You can also download the show directly here.

Note: Early registration has begun for next year's Nordic Obsession Tour. If you register before the end of the year, you can save $250 off your deposit. To learn more, go to the Nordic Obsession website

Podcast 248: Mykines, Part 1

This week, we head to the island of Mykines. Many Faroese consider this the most beautiful island in the country, and it's hard to argue against that. This western-most island contains a hike that combines, jaw-dropping beauty with thousands of puffins and a historic lighthouse.

In the first half of our journey, we survey the village that is home to just 13 people year round, and hike on the foggy highlands.

Also, there's less than two weeks left in our Kickstarter campaign. We're trying to raise $2,500 to fund another trip to the Faroes so we can record more episodes of our award-winning show. If you're able, please head on over to our Kickstarter page and show this podcast some love
