Podcast 266: Metal, Whaling, and Phone Booths

This week, we talk to Tyr frontman Heri Joensen about his upcoming tour of Europe. The tour became a target for activists after Joensen posted a photo of him cutting meat off a slaughtered whale. Some called for boycotts and others called in anonymous death threats to venues where Tyr was scheduled to play. We talk to Joensen about the controversy and how he chose to react to it.

Then we'll take shelter at a bus stop that has a film noir quality to it.

As always, you can listen on iTunes, on Stitcher Smart Radio, or on our media player at the top of the page. You can also download the show directly here..

Also, below is the video Heri made explaining Faroese whaling, the photo he posted, and the boycott against his band.
