Covering the Korea Beat with Elise Hu
Covering news on the Korean peninsula can be a hectic task. With all the rapidly evolving developments in economics, politics, and society, it's often hard for journalists who cover the peninsula to keep up with everything that they need to cover on a daily basis.
NPR journalist Elise Hu talks about her experiences working as the first NPR chief in Seoul with KEI Senior Director Troy Stangarone. She discusses her hectic first day, how things have changed drastically in both North and South Korea over the last year or so, and what life is like as a foreign correspondent.
*Please note: The podcast was recorded before the announced cancellation of the Trump-Kim summit.
