The Faroe Islands Podcast
Faroe Islands news, culture, politics, and music.

This week, we travel to the island of Skuvoy. We're there to spend the day with a field biologist who's studying the birds Skuvoy is named after. We'll take a choppy boat ride, then stroll through the islands only village before preparing to head up into the hills outside the village.

 

Reminder: There's still time to sign up for the Nordic Obsession Tour this July. To learn more just head over to our website.

 

Also, we're putting out hat into the ring for this year's Podcast Awards. Please go the Podcast Awards website and nominate us under the "Travel" category.

This week, we look back at last July's Faroe Pride march. It has been two years since Faroe Pride drew massive (by Faroese standards) crowds to Torshavn to march in favor of LGBT rights. This year, the crowds are a bit bigger, but has the atmosphere turned... routine? And if so, is that a good or a bad thing?

We'll hear some sound from the march, then talk to Eiler Fagraklett about the march and what it all meant.

This week, we visit the Faroe House in central Copenhagen. The house helps provide services for the thousands of Faroese people living in Denmark's capitol. We'll talk to the homes director, then we'll head off to Torshavn and see if a grinding billboard motor can tell us anything about the Faroese economy.
