RÚV English Radio


The RÚV English Podcast also sees the return of The Week In Iceland, which will feature as one of the strands of the new service. Each week we will take a look at some of the most significant news from, and in, the country. These shows will usually appear on Mondays, but we couldn't wait to get today's guest on! Darren is joined by former TWII host and RÚV Englishee Alex Elliott for his take on the week's news, and to have the RÚV English baton officially handed over!

Today we look at the shortest meeting in the history of Iceland's state mediator (and the likely consequences of the ongoing stalemate between Efling and SA), last weekend's gale force winds and the many hours stuck on the Keflavík tarmac, the Icelandic PM in Berlin and German chancellor coming here, and we preview the first big Eurovision weekend, as the ten songs battling to represent Iceland are unveiled on Saturday.

We play out today with You Complete Me, from Faroese-but-Reykjavík-based Sakaris' new EP Domestik Disko 106.
