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

It's Olavsoka time again. The two day celebration kicks off on July 28th, and in honor of that, we're listening to recordings we made on Olavsoka a couple of years ago but have never shared until now.

On day one of Olavsoka, we watch some football, hear some music, and observe a lot of horse poop.

When we last checked in with the 12 Olsen siblings in 2012, they were celebrating their combined 1,000th birthday. You may have thought, "Is that a world record?" Turns out, it is. 

On this week's podcast, we hear the story of how the siblings came to be recognized as the oldest (in combined years) by the Guinness Book of World Records.

It's the second night of the G! Festival and we've got two interviews recorded by Jóna Nicolajsen for Ras 2. First, we'll hear from a Finnish woman who is volunteering at the festival, then we'll hear three members of Daughters of Reykjavik, an all-woman hip-hop collective.

Special thanks for Heri Simonsen for helping us get these interviews.
