Awards Update

Just a short note to say that we did not prevail in the "Travel" category in tonight's podcast awards. We were up against a Disney-themed podcast, and it's not easy to go up against the mouse. But we understand that we performed respectably, so we can all hold our heads high.

And in the process of competing for this award, we picked up a bunch of new listeners. So to the new members of our little family, we say "welcome."

New Christmas podcast is on its way next week.

Podcast 76: Carjacking and Culture



This video of a man in a lion suit pretending to steal a car is considered funny by some, while others have condemned it as irresponsible. This week, we talk to the man in the suit and ask him what this was all about.

And we'll continue our conversation with Birgir Kruse, one of the most interesting people in the Faroe Islands. Then we'll wrap things up by hanging out at the harbor... but not in a creepy way.

Shameless Plug

You may have noticed the banner ad at the top of our blog and wondered just why it urges you to vote now. That's a good question, and we'll answer it right now.

We've been nominated for a Podcast Award in the "travel" category and we couldn't be more pleased. The winner will be decided by popular vote, so yes, we're in the middle of a popularity contest. And the competition is stiff. We're up against no fewer than FIVE podcasts dealing with Walt Disney World. And two of them have been nominated for the more prestigious "Best Produced" award, which means they likely have a large and motivated fan base.

But we here at the Faroe Islands Podcast believe we can pull off a major upset simply because the Faroe Islands is better than Disney World. And with a little help from all of you, we can make this happen.

All you have to do is click on the banner at the top of the page or go to http://www.podcastawards.com and vote for us. The "travel" category is at the very bottom of the page, so you'll have to scroll down a bit. After you vote, the site will (almost always) send a confirmation email to your account. Click on the activation link, and you're good to go.

Under the rules of the competition, fans can vote for their favorite podcast once a day until December 15th. That means our small but loyal fan base can turn themselves into an outsized number of votes during the next two weeks.

So please vote and help us spread the word about the podcast and the Faroe Islands. Thanks.

Never fear, it's not he end of the road for our plucky little podcast. Instead, we drove down a road, and when it ended, we found ourselves in the fun little town of Fuglafjørður.

There Is No Podcast #36

We'll be coming out with a new podcast in about a day, and the nerds and completests among you may notice that it has podcast #37 attached to it, despite the fact that the previous podcast was #35. This is because we didn't attach a number to the Christmas Bonus podcast. But for cataloging purposes, it's just easier to have the podcast number and the number of podcasts be the same, so we're making the change with this podcast.

We understand almost nobody cares about this, but if you don't explain it, then the internet goes insane.

Media Player

We're sad to report we've had to disable the media player due to technical issues. Hopefully they can be resolved soon.
