Welcome to the reboot of The Creamcast! From the studio of Popup Chinese, RFH and I welcomed Andray Abrahamian, Executive Director at Choson Exchange, and Simon Cockerell, general manager of Koryo Tours, to talk about all things North Korea — spying, journalism (7:35 mark), coffee (21:43), reunification (27:30), and whether animals cry (this was really a predominant theme).
Obviously we also discussed The Interview (35:20) and the merits of Katy Perry.
Other topics included: the Daily Mail’s profile of Simon, beginning with this headline –
A love of killer high heels, dog ribs in gravy and why Bend It Like Beckham is a smash: Man who’s been to North Korea 140 times shares his unrivalled insight into ‘normal’ life in the world’s most secretive nation
A quick note: this episode wasn’t without its technical difficulties, and for that I offer my apologies. But we’ll try again this week, and promise to do better.
