The best DPRK, North Korea, Hermit Kingdom, can of Super Awesome, podcast in the world. Join our three heroes as they add what this whole topic has been missing for years... some humor, flavored with actual research, about your next vacation to the land of the Kim's. That is, unless Trump and Un decide to wreck all the fun with a few nuclear button pushes.

Does North Korea really have no COVID-19 cases? Has Kim Jong-un really executed people with a flamethrower? Is everyone there forced to get a Kim Jong-un haircut? As a North Korea watcher, in this podcast I do my best to provide short but detailed responses to these and other most common questions about this country. The podcast is powered b ...
 
'My Mate Went on Holiday to North Korea' tells the story of exactly what its like to visit the so-called Hermit Kingdom - everything from booking your trip in the first place, through getting on the train in Beijing, to creaking across the boarder, an Alcatraz-like hotel and seeing the embalmed corpses of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il - as seen through the eyes of Luke Pearce, who travelled there on vacation in 2016. The interviewer is @Dave___Smith
 
North Korean leader Kim Jong-il died at 8:30am on December 17. He was 69 years old. In late 2010, he anointed his youngest son Kim Jong-un as his successor. This course examines the leadership of Kim Jong-un in the Democratic Republic of Korea and its implications for reunification on the Korean peninsula, U.S. relations with South Korea, and the prospects for renewed talks with North Korea.
