EP 246: Eclipse Recap, Part 2

This week, the last part of our coverage of the 2015 total solar eclipse in the Faroe Islands. We talk to eclipse chaser Kate Russo about her experience watching the eclipse, and her impressions of the Faroe Islands now that she's returned home to Northern Ireland.

Also, we visit a village on Vagar that gets lots of traffic but little tourist love, and we'll see who won this year's Podcast Awards.

EP 145: The Island and the Whales

This week, we talk to filmmaker Mike Day. He's working on a documentary about the Faroese whaling called "The Island and the Whales." Unlike most work on the subject, "The Island and the Whales" is quite good and tackles a difficult subject in a fair and thoughtful way. We'll talk about the origin of this project and when the film might hit screens.

Mike is raising money on Kickstarter to help get this film finished. You can learn more by visiting his Kickstarter page. The campaign ends on April 17.
