Faroe Islands news, culture, politics, and music.

This week, we've got an update on our Kickstarter campaign, and we visit the small town of Ephraim, Utah to see why the city was flooded with people dressed as Vikings.

This week, we launch our Kickstarter campaign to help fund a new season of the podcast. You can help support the podcast by going to our Kickstarter page and showing us a little love.

But we're not all business here. We also get an exclusive performance from Torshavn's Olavsoka choir. It's a really great song.

This week, part two of our conversation with Joel Cole. He's an American artist who moved to the Faroe Islands four years ago. We'll talk about the artistic community in the Faroes, and how an artist who works with wood gets his raw materials in a country almost entirely devoid of trees. Then we'll head out to the village of Skala and look back at a brighter past.

This week, we talk to Joel Cole, he's an American artist who first visited the Faroe Islands more than 25 years ago, and now calls the islands his home. In part one of our discussion, we talk about the long journey that took him to the Faroe Islands. Then we visit the coolest club in the Faroes and spend time at a mustache contest. (Spoiler: We don't win.)
