For today’s episode, we met up with the British ambassador to Iceland, Michael Nevin, who showed us his favourite place in Reykjavík. There, we discussed the pandemic, Brexit, and if he has any security concerns in the country, like the American ambassador—who reportedly asked for a knife vest and bodyguards to ensure his safety in Iceland—currently does. Of course, Pollý the Grapevine dog was also present for this important discussion.
Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
