The Icelandic language has remained so stable over the centuries, speakers can read manuscripts from 900 years ago without too much trouble. And when they need a new word for more recent concepts, there are committees to coin one, so that the modern Icelandic lexicon includes such things as the internet, helicopters and mansplaining. Defending the language from the encroachment of English, however, is rather more challenging.

In this episode we explore the life and times of the pioneering Icelandic saga translator, historian, womanizer, drunkard, witch-defender, and murderer Thormod Torfæus (1636-1719). Following him from the miseries and nerdery of his native Iceland, to the jingoistic opulence of the Danish court, and finally to the shores of Norway. A voyage through the utter insanity of Early Modern scholarship. A world of grand claims, lovecraftian grimoires, espionage, crimes against humanity, narwhal-ivory-snorting alchemists, and the meandering chaos of a life that eerily paralleled that of the anti-heroes of ancient Scandinavia.

“The village of Mountain in Pembina County is the center of a sizable Icelandic community,” writes Father Bill Sherman in his classic study, Prairie Mosaic. The settlement in North Dakota spun off from the colony of Gimli, in Manitoba, and comprised not only Mountain but also Hallson and Gardar. Mountain, however, was a cultural center.

While there are certainly more than five trailblazing women in Iceland's history, I thought it would be helpful to start off with these women first because they have made a significant impact on Iceland and the progression of the society for everyone. You might have heard of some of the women I'm featuring but there are others that you have probably never learned about. Before I jump into speaking about each woman, I will first give a bit of history about Iceland regarding suffrage and the significant impact that Icelandic women's organizations had in the country. These organizations were formed before women had the right to vote. After going over each of the phenomenal women's backgrounds, I share a little timeline of significant moments in Icelandic history that are related to women rights and equal rights. Next is the random fact of the episode and I will end off with the Icelandic word of the day. I found a lot of information on the Women's history Archives website. The Archives was founded in January of 1975 by Anna Sigurðardóttir, Else Mia Einarsdóttir and Svanlaug Baldursdóttir. Since 1996 it has been a special entity within the National Library of Iceland. There is so much information there and I will have links to the website in the show notes if you want to check it out. A Short History of Voting Rights in Iceland I think it is important and super fascinating to share some history about Iceland and how the country being governed by Denmark played a significant role in the rights of women in the country. At the beginning of the 19th century Iceland did not have many people residing in the country. The ones that did live here were farmers, their wives and kids, people who worked as laborers and maids. There was not a middle class until later into the 20th century. That is significant because it is often thought that the middle class are the backbone of social movements. In fact from 1845, the right to vote for men in Iceland was limited to those of a certain age that paid taxes and had property.That changed in 1903 but still that means that more than 50 years went by where only men with certain status in society had the right to vote. What is so interesting to me is that the Icelandic parliament discussed women's suffrage more than once in the 19th century and most parliamentarians supported it. However, all bills that contained women's suffrage were vetoed by Danish authorities. Those bills also proposed changes in the relationship between countries as well. I'm sure that had a lot to do with the bills being vetoed. I was surprised at how progressive parliament was back about this topic. And for those who are not aware, Iceland didn't become a sovereign state until 1918 and declared independence in 1944. The role of Women's Organizations in Icelandic history Iceland's first women's organization was founded in the countryside in 1869. It's focus was to foster more unity and cooperation among women in the region. They also collected money to buy a knitting machine that all members could use.Most women's organizations at the time were focused on helping the sick and the poor. Iceland didn't have a national healthcare system then and municipalities were barely providing any social help. By stepping in to help, these women organizations played a significant role in shaping the welfare state of the country. These organizations provided home care for the sick and created a healthcare center in Reykjavik.Because women were only allowed to get the most elementary education from the established institutions at the time, Icelandic women decided to create their own private schools between 1874 and 1879.Icelandic women gained the parliamentary vote in 1915, but the right was, however, blemished by the fact that only women over 40 years of age got the vote. Nowhere else in the world was women's suffrage restricted in this particular way. Certain circumstances in Iceland contributed to this unique decision,
I've been learning so much about the world. I had no idea Satan had his fingers so curled. It isn't much like the time of my childhood, What was once sweet now reeks with wormwood. I find no rest in what I used to enjoy. The world seemed a bit brighter when I was a boy. The more I walk these streets and watch the news, The more I feel doubt about what I learn in the pews. But then I turn to You, oh Lord! Your path narrow as an Icelandic fjord, Your wisdom comforts me when I lie down, And in the morning I still see that I wear a crown! So now Lord I know I will see your face, When Satan still seeks for my disgrace. You have never left my side, my King... And you are as close to me, as a bird to its wing. • Alexander Childs • Have you felt stressed or even overwhelmed by the news or by learning more about the world we live in? God cares about the world's hurts, and He is near to those who are suffering (Psalm 34:18). Jesus came into our broken world, and He suffered with us. His death and resurrection guarantee that one day, He will make all things new! In the meantime, He is with us (His forgiven followers) through His Holy Spirit, His Word, and His people. And He is always working to draw people to Himself, to heal all kinds of brokenness, and to set people free. • God invites us to come to Him with our frustrations and sorrows, even (and especially) when we're having doubts about Him. He can take it. What is weighing on you today? For with much wisdom is much sorrow; as knowledge increases, grief increases. Ecclesiastes 1:18 (CSB)

Sam and Emma host Will Stronge, co-director of research at the think tank Autonomy, to discuss his recent book Overtime: Why We Need A Shorter Working Week that he co-authored with Kyle Lewis. They start off by reflecting on the late night infrastructure bill passage from last Friday night, as well as Josh Gottheimer's mealy-mouth pledge to support the reconciliation package regardless of what the CBO score is. Then they dive into their conversation with Will, starting with an outline of the history of the 5-day work week in the U.S., specifically tracing the origins back to the administration of FDR. Will then gives some context as to how this movement towards a shorter working week has manifested in other countries, specifically in conjunction with union/labor power. Sam, Emma and Will then discuss why specifically a 4-day, 32-hour schedule is what's been floated mostly, and what problems specifically implementation of this policy can solve. Will, despite touting the policy as a "multi-dividend policy" with multi-dividend solutions, qualifies that the 4-day work week is no silver bullet, before outlining a study from Iceland that showed the policy having an immensely positive impact on the subjects, with more and more Icelandic citizens wanting to switch over to the 4-day plan after the study concluded. In the context of COP26, Sam, Emma, and Will also reflect on the positive environmental impacts the policy can have; despite seeming second-order before, they certainly seem to be a priority now. They end on discussing the gender gap, the idea of the "second shift" of unpaid labor for working mothers, optimal deployment/enforcement mechanisms for such a policy, whether it's completely out of reach for the U.S. to actually implement, and how COVID laid bare the inequities that "good work" and a better working schedule could mitigate if implemented. And in the Fun Half, the MR crew discuss Greta Thunberg's scathing dressing down of COP26 at a protest outside the summit, and juxtapose that with "private citizen" Barack Obama joking that he has to sit in traffic to come to these now, but also, if it's any consolation, doesn't have to wear a tie anymore. They then take a look at YouTuber Shaun's surgical dissection of Jimmy Dore's anti-vax talking points, how he's been lying by manipulating sources to buttress those points, and that he's still taking cues from cranks like the "mRNA founder" Robert Malone. The crew also takes a look at some data showing that Trump counties are still more adversely affected by COVID, then take a look at a CNN piece on a family's struggle with inflation (the family has like 12 kids and is receiveid $2,700 from the government via the Child Tax Credit, but that's neither here nor there).

So many people around the world have fallen in love with Icelandic music because of the amazing artists from this tiny country in the North Atlantic ocean.

Lydia Warren has a particular kind of amnesia. She vaguely recalls arriving in Santorini with a one-armed man whom she calls David Copperfield, who takes care of her. Lydia spends her days watching the sea and the changing light, trying to remember who she is. She takes walks, befriends a kindly old antiques dealer who might have been a Nazi and a French woman who helps people remember their past lives. Bits and pieces of what might or might not have been past lives appear in brief visions. A lamp she buys from the antiques dealer reminds her of an New York apartment she once lived in, but it's the 1960's, well before she was born. Then she's visited by someone from The Hague investigating war crimes, and she learns that she has an uncle who lives like a hermit behind a monastery, also somewhere in Greece. This is a story about memory, the mysterious workings of the brain, and the human capacity for forgiveness. Jessica Sticklor earned a BA from the New School and an MFA in Creative Writing from the City University of New York. Before The Weary God of Ancient Travelers, she wrote The Beekeeper's Daughter (Bedazzled Ink Press), Betwixt and Between (IG Publishing), Nod, and the young adult Pan Chronicles Series (D.X. Varos). Her short stories have appeared in The Warwick Review, The Hawaii Pacific Review and Wasifiri, and her nonfiction has appeared in The Writer Magazine, Ms. Magazine, and Tor.com. She has worked as an editor at THe Global City Press and the The Global City Review and has taught creative writing at both high school and university level. She has published young adult fantasy under the name J.M. Stephen, lives in southern Vermont, and writes for the very local newspaper, the Deerfield Valley News. Jessica grew up in the Chicagoland area. She has lived in New York City and Southwestern Vermont. She loves skiing, hiking, Virginia Woolf and anything Icelandic. I interview authors of beautifully written literary fiction and mysteries, and try to focus on independently published novels, especially by women and others whose voices deserve more attention.

Guys. Holy crap guys. This week, the show is simply bursting with content. First, Chris and Matt discuss the much-anticipated Dune: Part 1, the passion project of First Run favorite Denis Villeneuve. Is it gorgeous? Is it exciting? Is it as weird as its source material? Only one way to find out. Well, two if you count watching yourselves. The guys then give you not one, but two, bonus discussions on Ridley Scott's latest sword and shield historical epic, The Last Duel, and an Icelandic horror fairy tale thing with Lamb. Then the Body Horror Marathon continues with The Incredible Melting Man, one of the only films reviewed for the podcast that is also the subject of an MST3K episode. So there's that.

Icelandic ghost stories have been told over the centuries and there is one in particular that I am sharing in this episode. “Deacon of Dark River” or Djákninn á Myrká is a spooky story that involves love, Christmas and the undead. Over the last couple of years, Halloween has become more popular in Iceland, even though there is another holiday (Öskudagur), where kids dress up and sing for candy. However, that holiday happens on Ash Wednesday and not much happens during this time of the year, so it makes sense that Icelanders are gravitating towards celebrating Halloween. Random Fact of the Episode “Trolls in the Knolls: 35 Icelandic Folk & Fairy Tales ” is the book I referenced in the episode. It has some fun stories that are a mix of bizarre, fascinating and a little scary.

Back and better(well, probably the same) than ever, the guys are back to talk your ears off about two new releases.

Icelandic-born, Sweden-based singer/songwriter/pianist Anna Gréta was born in music (her father is acclaimed jazz saxophonist Sigurður Flosason) and has performed with some of the great Nordic jazz musicians of today. On October 29, she will release her debut album, Nightjar in the Northern Sky, via ACT Music. The record emerged from a period of two years and was partly influenced by the isolation of the global pandemic. It includes twelve original compositions, shaped by tinges of the familiar sonic Nordic surrealism, nature and Anna Gréta's own process of self-discovery. As an official press release puts it, "with each of the tracks on this album, she creates self-contained worlds that are part of a bigger picture, light-footed, relaxed, reduced, concentrated. And a remarkably multilayered, immersive and beautiful experience." --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jazziz/support
In the Icelandic capital city of Reykjavik during the 1970s the population was only 220,000 people, for reference that is less than the population of Reno NV in 2010. So with a small population, the number of violent crimes is one of the lowest in the world. This is why, when two people went missing in a year in 1974 the whole country was pressuring the police to solve the cases. Two missing people, six confessions, and zero bodies. Was there even a crime committed?

On the show, Chris Hedges talks to documentary filmmaker and investigative journalist John Pilger about the upcoming appeals hearing in London for the Julian Assange case. On Sept. 26, Yahoo! News published ‘Kidnapping, assassination and a London shoot-out: Inside the CIA's secret war plans against WikiLeaks'. The article detailed discussions within the CIA to kidnap or assassinate Julian Assange. The revelations came a month before a hearing in Britain's High Court that will see the US government appeal a decision that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange cannot be sent to the United States to face espionage charges. These revelations also coincided with the arrest of an Icelandic man who played a major role in the FBI's case against Assange and who has now admitted he lied in his testimony about Assange to US federal investigators. The most recent revelations, coupled with the numerous legal anomalies of the Assange case, including leaks that show that the Spanish security firm at Ecuador's Embassy in London, where Assange sought refuge for seven years, turned over recordings of his meetings with his lawyers to the CIA, amply illustrate that the judicial pantomime carried out against Assange is a political persecution led by the US government and the CIA because of embarrassing and damaging revelations about the inner workings of the US military, intelligence agencies, and the political class repeatedly exposed by Assange and WikiLeaks. The goal of the US government is to shut down WikiLeaks and organizations like it, and to make an example of Assange, who, if he is extradited to the United States, faces 175 years in prison, to dissuade others who might consider replicating his courageous reporting. The upcoming appeals hearing is on October 27 and 28 at Britain's High Court, London.

Members of outlaw motorcycle gangs in Western Australia have been advised to hide face tattoos under make-up and plasters, as the state rolls out harsh laws banning people from showing off “prohibited” patches and insignia's. The Icelandic police believe that the Bandidos Motorcycle Club has earned validation in Iceland from Bandidos MC in Sweden, and that its members count more than ten, in addition to a few support groups. The club's headquarters are in Suðurnes, on the Reykjanes peninsula, Southwest Iceland. Timestamps
Jared Bibler, author of 'Iceland's Secret: The Untold Story of the World's Biggest Con' discusses the collapse of the frontier market's economy and market in 2008, a chapter in financial history largely unnoticed in the US because America was going through its own financial crisis, caused by the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Bibler notes that the three Icelandic banks that imploded at that time were -- to the small country's economy -- ' the size of 300 Lehman Brothers' representing about 90 percent of Iceland's stock market as a result of stock buy-backs that are similar-yet-different to the ones Americans see happening domestically every day. Also on the show, Ted Pulsifer discusses a Piplsay.com study on how buy-now/pay-later programs are becoming increasingly popular, which may also be making them financially hazardous, investment analyst Kyle Guske of New Constructs puts a mutual fund in 'the Danger Zone," and Chuck discusses the latest twist in his annual 'Cash or candy' Halloween experiment.
Glaciers matter to the people who live near them – but how do these communities respond as more and more ice melts away?

2021 has been such an interesting year for me and I was just as shocked as anyone that I was able to interview the President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. I talk about how the opportunity to interview Guðni during the podcast episode because it is quite unusual. The President was very kind to answer all of my questions, including the questions that the members of the All Things Iceland Patreon submitted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTJo-K3_PV8&t=1s Here are the questions I asked the President of Iceland during the interview: What motivated you to run for President of Iceland in 2016? Can you explain a bit about what your duties are, and what kind of power you do have in the Icelandic government? - What have you learned from previous Icelandic Presidents What is most challenging about being President of Iceland? How has COVID impacted your Presidency? What He likes about being President of Iceland The myths about Iceland he wants to debunk The President's favorite history about Bessastaðir (The Icelandic President's Residence) Has there been anything interesting and/or strange that have you experienced since leaving behind your life as an ordinary citizen and becoming the head of the Icelandic state? One of the most surprising things I read about you is you're a very distant cousin of Barack Obama. Was it shocking to you when you found that out? Also, have you met the Obamas? What is your favorite Icelandic word or phrase? Questions From my patrons on Patreon Before assuming the office of the president you had an academic background in Icelandic history. When you leave office what do you think you will focus on studying or writing about? As an individual who has translated the works of Stephen King into Icelandic what is your favorite work by the Author? Is there any literature you would love to see translated that has not been?

Dr. Vidar Magnusson is an anesthesiologist, intensivist and EMS physician in Reykjavik, Iceland. He is the current National Medical Director for pre-hospital services in Iceland, a post he held both between 2011- 2014, and again from 2016 to the present. He has extensive EMS and air-medical experience including serving as a medical officer with the British Army NATO coalition forces, ground EMS in Iceland and the Icelandic Coast Guard Medevac helicopter. He has worked in several air-medical systems in Europe including London HEMS, KSS HEMS and the Norwegian Air Ambulance. He represents Iceland in the Scandinavian Society for Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine (SSAI) prehospital guidelines group as well as the SSAI Critical Emergency Medicine (CrEM) postgraduate training program. In addition, he holds a master of business administration from Reykjavik University. In this episode host Stephen Wood, a former HEMS paramedic, discusses the differences between air-medical systems in several parts of the world. The conversation starts with the London HEMS system, considered one of the best in the world. Vidar discusses the extensive training program, research and quality assurance that goes into this system. Stephen and Vidar discuss some of the differences of the U.S. based programs that less often feature physician-led teams and how the two compare. The Norwegian system was next on the agenda, another robust program but with a different crew configuration and design. Lastly, the pair chatted about the Icelandic system, which is new and up and coming, but still in a growth stage. Vidar and Stephen discussed some of the differences in HEMS requests, flight and weather operations. The conversation closes with a view of HEMS in the future, particularly for the Icelandic program, and how each would envision a robust HEMS program.

We went and saw Lamb, and I'm still wondering about what I saw. This moody and intimate Icelandic horror movie may not have a lot of scares, but it serves up plenty of dread, and will stick with you for a while. (1:31) - Intro(7:03) - Synopsis(7:31) - Review(9:13) - Score(22:59) - Spoilers(58:06) - Rotten Tomatoes Game(1:07:24) - Horror Movie Whooooores @dgoebel00 on Instagram provided this amazing artwork. Follow him and check out his website. Lamb can be found in theaters now Synopsis Lamb is about a childless couple working a farm in Iceland that discovers a unique lamb born in their barn. They take special care in raising this lamb, but something's not quite right. You can tell because some of the other lambs have shifty eyes. https://youtu.be/hnEwJKVWjFM Review of Lamb This is a very unique movie. It's one of the things I crave in a moviegoing experience: novelty. There has definitely never been a movie like this one. The story is very simple and spare, but somehow punches you in the gut with vague allegory. It's almost hard to come up with what this movie is about without just describing the plot, but the themes go into nature vs nurture, seeking happiness where you shouldn't, motherhood, loss, jealousy, and synthpop. It is definitely slowly paced, but that isn't to say that it isn't engaging. It held my attention, and affected me on an emotional level. The visuals were stark but beautiful, reminding me a lot of A24's other recent release The Green Knight. https://www.horrormovietalk.com/2019/10/16/the-witch-review/ If you think all of A24's movies are pretentious garbage, then you'll hate this movie, but if you want to see something that you haven't before and are willing to soak in some melancholy for a couple hours, I highly recommend it.

Við elskum þig, Raja! It means ‘We Love You, Raja!' in Icelandic and we really do love her. She's the winner of Season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and the very first Asian American to win a Drag Race franchise title in 2011. We discuss Asian representation on Drag Race and the big changes that television brought to her career. Raja is kind of a big deal and has even guest starred as herself on The Simpsons. Because she is so iconic, we had to ask her about her influences including her time working as a fashion forward makeup artist for industry giants such as Iman, Twiggy, Alex Lambert, Tyra Banks, and more! These days she's got her very own podcast with Delta Work in which they discuss beauty, culture, and the most unforgettable moments from their club days.
