An English interview about my new Korean podcast on Busan eFM

You may have noticed that I’ve started a new podcast in Korean. Called 콜린의 한국, or Colin’s Korea, it follows very much in the vein of my previous English-language podcast Notebook on Cities and Culture and its public-radio predecessor The Marketplace of Ideas.

Korean-speakers can subscribe to 콜린의 한국 on iTunes, and if you want to know more about the project, have a listen to this fifteen-minute interview of me about it on Busan eFM 90.5, conducted by past Notebook on Cities and Culture guest Chance Dorland.
