On This Week’s Stereo Sunday, We Continue Our Adventures in North Korea (Part One Can Be Found Here):

  • Gabe and Jordan traveled to North Korea (aka Democratic People's Republic of Korea -- or DPRK) together several times between 2011 and 2016.
  • As bizarre as you've heard North Korea can be, the reality is probably even weirder.
  • What do you actually do on a trip to North Korea?
  • How long does a typical itinerary last?
  • Should you strike up conversations with random people in transit (or let them tell you what you can and cannot read)?
  • What's so impressive about the Arirang Mass Games?
  • What should you do if you're accidentally caught up in propaganda production?
  • How do North Korean subways differ from what we've come to expect in the West?
  • How can throwing a frisbee thaw international iciness?
  • How much warm beer can you get for $20 cash money American?
  • Want to know what it's like to live out a scene from a David Lynch-directed musical? Just dine at a North Korean restaurant!
  • Will you get thrown into a gulag for performing the Star-Spangled Banner at karaoke in North Korea (or should you)?
  • Why did Kim Jong-il allegedly accompany his mother into battle as an infant?
  • In the US, we have freedom of speech. In the DPRK, you don't even have freedom from speech.
  • Why do so many Americans and Canadians own businesses in a town on the Chinese-North Korean border?
  • After talking about all the upsides of visiting North Korea as an American, what are the downsides?
  • If you visit North Korea, what will you encounter that you won't hear about on American network news?
  • We also answer some of our listener questions that came in live during the show!
