This week we take one last look at Whale Wars: Viking Shores. The program has finished its run in the United States and now playing in the UK and Ireland. We ask critic Andy Dehnart if the program was actually any good, and who "won" the faceoff between th Sea Shephard and the Faroese people.

Then we stand outside a big church and act glum.

Faroese stamps are highly prized among collectors for both their artistry and scarcity. This week, we talk to the people who produce these stamps, and even offer listeners a way to winn some stamps of their own. Then we head out the outskirts of Torshavn and imagine the future.
