The Faroe Islands Podcast
Faroe Islands news, culture, politics, and music.

This Christmas Eve, we're listning to a conversation we had with Heri Simonsen on December 24, 2009. We talk about Christmas in the Faroe Islands and New Year's celebrations as well.

 

Merry Christmas to you and the people you love.

This week, Heri Simonsen talks with Hungarian journalist Gaor Lantos. They talk about football (soccer) and how sports can be good advertisement for a country.

Then we'll travel to the heart of Torshavn and feel a little like Omega Man.

This week, we talk to American journalist and masters student Miranda Metheny about her research on how the Faroese are portrayed in international media, and how the Faroese present themselves to the rest of the world. The results may surprise you.

Then we'll watch as the Norrona, the massive ferry that connects the Faroes with Iceland and Dermark, glides out of the harbor.

The Faroe Islands is a place where hitchhiking is both safe, legal, and socially acceptable. So this week, we give it a whirl. We'll hitch from Torshavn to Gota. It's normally about a 45 minute drive, and that's about how long this podcast goes. But happiness is a journey, not a destination, right?
