Podcast 91: Census Working Overtime

This year, the Faroe Islands will conduct a census for the first time in nearly 35 years, and on this week's show we'll talk to the man in charge. Also, we head out to what's easily the deepest beach in the Faroes (pictured above). It's on Suduroy, and it's mighty windy.

As always, you can listen on iTunes, or on our audio player above. Or you can download the show directly here:

This week, we're recommending people go onto Facebook and become fans with our good friend Marius. He did a special musical performance on the podcast in 2009, and has just started a Facebook page. We heartily advise all our listeners to check out his page, and "like" it. And who knows, he just might be coming to a club near you this August or September (offer open to US residents only).

Podcast 90: A Day At The Races

This week, we head out to the village of Sørvágur to watch some traditional Faroese rowing, and maybe, learn a little something about life. Well maybe not. But we do see some rowing.

Bonus Batter

On this week's show, we talk to one of the founders of Faroese sweater-makers Gudrun & Gudrun.

We've got a great interview about the company, the importance of Faroese sweaters throughout history, and how the company has gained international fame through a Danish crime drama.

Here's a short segment of the interview that didn't make the show. In it, Guðrun Rógvadóttir talks about the design aesthetic at Gudrun & Gudrun and the sweater that made them famous.

(Note: This interview was conducted before the earthquake and tsunami in Japan)

Podcast 88: The Rigors of the Road

This week, we deviate from for format a little bit to bring you our travel diary from last July's trip the Faroes. It's a tale of sleep deprivation (see photo above) and the insanity that comes from spending too much time in an airport.

So strap on your headphones and take a journey across the Atlantic using only your iPod.

Podcast 87: Life in the Sort-Of Big City

On this week's show, we continue our conversation with Agnes Mortensen, who is pursuing a PhD in New Hampshire. We talk about the adjustments she had to make to live in the big city. Well, not exactly the big city, but larger than you'd tend to find in the Faroes.

Then we head out to the beach at Gota, even though the G! Festival isn't on.
