Podcast 106: World Cup Super Preview

Why a super preview? Because qualifying play doesn't start for another year, that's why.

But nevertheless, the draw for the qualifying matches for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil took place last month, and we are duty-bound to look into it. The Faroe Islands National Team (out-of-date photo above) is in group "C", and they've got some stiff competition.

So sort this all out, we've got our International Football Correspondent David Scally in. He'll help us handicap Group C, and pick a team that the Faroes just might upset.

Then we'll visit the "nice" neighborhood in Torshavn and explore just what "nice" means.

As always, you can listen on iTunes or on our media player at the top of the page. Or you can download the show directly here:

Also, if you want to hear our initial interview with Scally where he tells the story of his wild trip to the Faroe Islands in 2008, just scroll down this page and look for the entry just below this one.

Bonus Brew: David Scally

Our guest this week on the radio show and podcast is David Scally. We're going to be talking about the World Cup draw, but it's worth revisiting how the lovely and talented Mr. Scally came to our attention.

Scally had a wild adventure while attempting to travel to the Faroes to see his beloved Manchester City take on EB/Streymur. It involved a fishing trawler, an emergency flight, and a trip to the hospital. In the process, Scally landed on the front pages of newspapers in both the Faroes and the UK.

So prepare for Scally's return to the Faroes by listening to his previous appearances on the podcast, as he shared his amazing story...

Podcast 104: LGBT on the Faroes

This week, we talk to Eiler Fagraklett (pictured above). He's on the board of LGBT Faroe Islands. We'll talk about he state of LGBT rights in the Faroes, and about the new ad campaign (also pictured above) where members of the LGBT community essentially out themselves.

Then we travel to an old Faroese village where the ferry no longer stops, but that hasn't kept it from being a thriving village.
