The Faroe Islands Podcast

The Faroe Islands Podcast explores the news, culture, and politics of the Faroe Islands... and it's in English so you can understand it.

Nov 30, 2019

On this holiday edition of the podcast, we have some fun. We sit in front of the TV with two of our best friends in the Faroes, Miranda Metheny and Uni Johannesen, and play Gekkur.

Gekkur is a cross between bingo and the lottery. But to win you have to watch this TV show and call in if you have the winning numbers and there are wheels to be spun and letters to chose and prizes to select and... there are a lot of rules.

We'll do our best to explain this Faroese phenomenon. Failing that, we'll just have fun.
