Pod-a-Rooney with Joe Rooney

Kristin Vollset is a Norwegian singer/songwriter documentary maker and traveller who ended up in Dublin after travelling through Denmark, Holland, England and Scotland in her van.

She was looking for a free spot to park her van in Dublin city centre when she accidentally reversed into a wall and broke a tail light. Then a horse came out from a hole in the wall and the rest is history.

In this interview Kristin tells me how she happened upon a group of inner city lads who have a horse stables on Cork St. She ended up hanging around with these lads for the next 2 years and filmed a documentary about her experience. She wrote and recorded the song No Plan with some of the lads and the video for the song went viral.

I chatted to her via Skype in her home town of Bergen.
