Why?- Episode 28 Sealand with Prince Michael
Jun 10, 2019 Season 1 Episode 28
Heidi Hedquist/ Luke Poling
Prince Michael of Sealand talks about his country, his father and what it's like to be royality.
Show Notes

Sealand is the smallest country in the world. Located just off the coast of the UK in international waters, the country was 'founded' when Prince Michael's dad took over an abandoned World War II defense post and turned it into a pirate radio station. How do you keep broadcasting AND keep her majesty's government off your back? Claim you're not part of the UK. And it's worked. Sealand has happily existed since 1967.

Prince Michael talks with Luke and Heidi about the country- how did they form, what's their relationship like with England and does he ever get mail intended for other princes? For more information about Sealand, to become a Lord or Lady, or to just buy some really cool stamps, visit their website.
