We've made more than 200 episodes, but there's still more stories to tell. We need your help to get back to the Faroe Islands this summer and record more episodes of our award-winning podcast. This year, we're putting special emphasis on visiting the outer islands that visitors rarely get to.
On each trip to the Faroes, we're able to record material for about 25-35 shows, so your support essentially guarantees we'll be able to produce shows for another year. (The remainder of our shows throughout the year come from Skype interviews, locally recorded material, and submissions from our team on the Faroes.)
We're also looking to upgrade our sound this year. We'll use a portion of this year's funds to invest in a new mp3 recorder. You'll hear a difference in our field recordings and especially in the interviews we do in the Faroe Islands.
We work hard to make this show sound like it's recorded by a professional production house or a well-funded tourism board. But in reality, it's created by a few volunteers who are really passionate about what we do. Your support helps us keep this show revenue-neutral and allows us to provide the shows for free.
Risks and challenges
One of the goals of this trip is to produce episodes on some of the remote islands in the Faroes,. And as you can imagine in a place nicknamed "The Land of Maybe," that can be a somewhat dicey proposition. Weather can delay or even cancel the helicopters and ferries we'll use to get to these islands.
But we're already laying out plans to make sure we'll be able to explore the remote corners of the country, no matter what the weather. Also, this will be our 6th trip to the Faroes, and we've become expert at getting a lot of work done in a short period of time. Last year, we gathered enough audio for about 30 shows. We plan to do the same this year.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
