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

We've noticed that our podcasts about whales get big download numbers, as do our shows on gay rights. So, we thought, how about doing a show about gay whales? Consider it done!

We talk to Eiler Fagraklett, the head of LGBT Foroyar about a Faroese children's book that features... wait for it... a gay whale. OK, maybe it's gay. It's probably gay. So we read from the book and talk a little about how life has changed for LGBT people (sorry, whales) in the Faroes over the last ten years.

Then we stand in a new tunnel that definitely is not haunted.
