“The pictures! They’re alive!” – Abe Simpson
The Conversation Podcast has come about by some strange, but delightful twist of fate.
We come from very different backgrounds, but now we have our lives intertwined through our girlfriends, which are best friends. They have always been close and the fact they now live in different countries hasn‘t changed that one bit. When they both found out they were pregnant with their first child and had a set date a few days apart, it was no real surprise to any of us. So, in three wonderful days in March, we became fathers and everything was different. All of a sudden, free time was something we remembered we used to have, but now was in short supply.
Spending most of the summer together in Iceland, us new fathers got to know each other and found out we shared this passion for film. The problem was finding the time to enjoy movies like we used to. So, The Conversation Podcast was our answer. By committing to a bi-weekly podcast, we‘d have to make time for movies and we‘d get to continue discussing them.
And here we are. We don‘t pretend to be experts, but we’re definitely having fun. Who knows, maybe someone else can enjoy our talks.

I am just a dad who loves movies, technology, and his beautiful daughter and girlfriend.
I have worked with film/video productions for several years and my main focus is at the post production phase, such as editing, compositing and post sound work.
Also, I am working in the university sector, acquiring a lot of experience with e-learning, web development (LMS’ such as Moodle), and filmmaking aimed at television and broadcasting.
Now I am here, producing and hosting a podcast about film. You can read more about.me/runekj and find my social links.

I’m an Icelander with no experience in the film industry. However, that doesn‘t stop me from being opinionated when it comes to film. Lets just say I tend to know what I like and what I dislike.
My day-job is as far from the arts as possible. I work in the fishing industry in Iceland for a big company called Þorbjörn hf in the small fishing village of Grindavík. There I handle logistics, manage stock and various sales related jobs. I live with my girlfriend and my little boy in the capitol region, in a town called Hafnarfjörður.
My interests other than film include literature, sports, health, cooking and of course spending time with my family
