On This Week's Stereo Sunday, We Discuss Travelling to North Korea:

  • 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.
  • Do Gabe and Jordan have regrets about spending their tourist dollars in a country that routinely tries to goad the United States into nuclear confrontation and imprisons hundreds of thousands of its own citizens in slave labor camps?
  • What are the dos and don'ts they lay out for Western tourists in orientation?
  • First impressions of the airport and the island-isolated hotel where foreigners are kept.
  • Travelers are accompanied everywhere by a guide/minder.
  • Why tourists shouldn't argue with the locals about differing accounts of history.
  • Is everything a tourist is allowed to see in North Korea just an elaborate "show?"
  • Does everyone who lives there believe what the regime tells them?
  • Download the Stereo app here and participate with us live on Friday, November 20th and 27th, at 2 p.m. PST!
