The Faroe Islands Podcast

The Faroe Islands Podcast explores the news, culture, and politics of the Faroe Islands... and it's in English so you can understand it.

Jun 20, 2014

This week, part one of our conversation with Pete Bethune. Bethune is a conservationist and animal rights activist. A couple of years ago, Bethune was preparing to assemble a group of 150 activists to patrol the beaches of the Faroe Islands and disrupt any whale hunts. But when Bethune traveled to the Faroe Islands to do some advance work, he abandoned those plans, even though he still strongly opposed the whale hunts. This week, Bethune talks about his first impressions of the Faroe Islands and what convinced him to change his plan to end Faroese whaling.
