EP 63: Arni Zachariassen on Icelandic PM's Visit to the Faroes

This week, we discuss the visit to the Faroes by Icelandic Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir and the controversy that came after a Faroese MP refused to dine with Sigurðardóttir because of her sexual orientation.

The program is a casual, mostly-unedited conversation with Arni Zachariassen, a Faroese theology student living in Aberdeen. He wrote an open letter to the Icelandic PM that has been cited by many news outlets covering the story.
