Description

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!]

  • Why Yeonmi finds being on the North Korean regime's official kill list to be "liberating."

  • And much more...
