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

This week, another in our series on the immigrant experience in the Faroe Islands. We talk to Kinga Eysturland, who was raised in Poland, speaks perfect American English, and is married to a Russian who is a Faroese citizen who is obsessed with Uruguay. We'll talk about the joys and struggles of being a foreigner in close-knit society structured mainly around families.

Then we'll go to a living room in Gota and hear the beautiful and haunting voice of Eivor.

As a reminder, this is the last week to sign up for this year's Nordic Obsession Tour. To learn more, visit the Nordic Obsession Website.
