578: Yeonmi Park | A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom Part One
Yeonmi Park (@YeonmiParkNK) is a North Korean defector and activist whose harrowing experiences are chronicled in her book In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom. [This is part one of a two-part episode. Please stay tuned for the conclusion later this week!]
What We Discuss with Yeonmi Park:
- Why there's a black market for poop in North Korea.
- How the people of North Korea are kept isolated from the outside world to the extent that they use a different calendar, have never heard of Shakespeare, and don't even have words for "oppression" or "love."
- How North Korea's guilt-by-association policy can carry punishment for people who are within several generations of someone perceived as offensive to the regime.
- Why Yeonmi finds being on the North Korean regime's official kill list to be "liberating."
- How long it might take to watch Titanic in a country that only turns on the electricity for State holidays (and the ultimate penalty for getting caught doing so).
- And much more...
