Podcast 202: Faroese Anti-Whaling, Part 2

This week, part two of our conversation with Runi Nielsen. He's a Faroese conservationist and a vocal opponent of whaling in the Faroe Islands. Last week, Nielsen gave his specific reasons why he thinks Faroese whaling should stop, This week, Nielsen talks about the effect outside groups are having on the debate over whaling in the Faroes (spoiler alert: they're undermining their own cause). We also talk about what it's like to be a Faroese person trying to convince his countrymen to abandon a centuries-old practice.

Then we head out to a soggy football pitch and watch a 2nd division team practice.
