As an experiment, we at Karfan.is are putting out english spoken podcasts regularly about the Domino’s men’s and women’s leagues. Ideas and improvements to this show are welcomed and we ask that you send them to karfan@karfan.is.

In our eleventh podcast about the Men’s Premier League 2018-2019, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza, David, Axel and Helgi discuss the second round of the playoffs, where one team surprised and another team ran out of gas in our opinion. The seventh seeded ÍR team is going up against the fifth seeded and five time defending champions in KR. ÍR has already opened the series by stealing the home court advantage! We talk about who won or lost the game and go over strategies and dynamics for game two which is being played today! We talk about new stories in the league and go over the women’s semifinals and finals where Valur has taken a commanding 2-0 lead and can sweep next Saturday at home. Regína could not join us tonight but will be joining us for an end of season wrapup when the champions in the men and women’s leagues have been crowned at the beginning of May. Enjoy.

Hosts: Helgi Hrafn Ólafsson, David Patchell and Axel Örn Sæmundsson
