Iceland Airwaves 2014 Documentary Airs 2/21+ 2/23, Hear Outtakes Now

Our Iceland Airwaves 2014 audio documentary will air February 21st at 10am and the 23rd at 6pm on WCRX 88.1 FM and WCRXFM.com. In the meantime, check out some outtakes below.

Producing and editing our audio documentary about Iceland made for a few hard pronunciations and disjointed script attempts but ended in high spirits.

Airwaves 2014 was a whirlwind of deadlines, late nights and new experiences. But in the spirit of a friendly, good-natured country like the tiny Nordic Island, enjoy our outtakes!

Icelandic Culture: Viking presence in modern day Iceland (Listen)

We’ve had a great time covering Iceland Airwaves and discovering and reporting on Icelandic culture. Here’s an Icelandic cultural interview culled from our time there. Be sure to stay tuned for our final radio documentary, which will air on WCRX-FM 88.1. Visit our Iceland Airwaves blog to read/hear more from our time in Iceland. 

Check out my story on Viking culture and the presence it has in today’s Icelandic culture. I interviewed Sverrir Jakobsson a midieval history professor at the University of Iceland and Jon Pall Bjornsson a historian from the Viking settlement exhibit in Reykjavík.
