S.A.N.K. 027 – Interview With Wendy Simmons, author of “My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place On Earth”

SANK LOGO_027-01

The boys pull it together long enough to read a truly interesting book, written about one woman’s solo vacation to North Korea and her humanizing yet frustrating experience with various handlers and government officials. They then (John actually) extend themselves and set up an interview with the author, Wendy Simmons. She was funny, gracious, and at all times honest in her criticism and praise for the country and people of North Korea. Listen in and hear the amazing conversation three degenerates and an author end up having.

  • Having heard the podcast – I’ve now read Wendy’s book. FWIW – I found it useful from the point of view of someone planning a trip to NK.
    But the fundamental point is surely – DO NOT undertake a solo trip. She certainly had bad luck in getting such an awful Guide (with a reputation for being one of the worst). I wonder how different Wendy’s experience and opinions might have been had she travelled with a small group of people where (hopefully) there was some friendship and fun within the group. Obviously too late for her – but thanks for the podcast and thanks for the book.
