On tonight’s show, we travel to the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea — better known here in the U.S. as North Korea.  Ellen Choy, Caitlin Kee, and Steph Lee visited the DPRK last summer as part of the Korea Exposure and Education Program (KEEP), an annual delegation of Korean American activists to both sides of Korea, one year to the north and the other to the south, to build person-to-person understanding.

We’ll feature an interview with Ellen, Caitlin, and Steph — as well as clips from a short documentary that was produced by JT Takagi, Hye-Jung Park and Chris Kang and Third World Newsreel.

Ellen and Steph are also part of Hella Organized Bay Area Koreans (HOBAK), an anti-imperialist group of diasporic Koreans here in the Bay Area. 

Hosted and produced by Marie Choi.  Marie is also part of HOBAK.
