North Korea

 

Lian Dolan, Julie Dolan and Liz Dolan of the Satellite Sisters on the weekly podcast featuring News, Talk & Laughs. This week on the show, Julie fills us in on what’s happening in North Korea after attending a policy summit at the Bush Library called Light Through the Darkness hosted by President and Mrs. Bush. Where are the concerns for the future of North Korea and the US relationship with that country? According to experts, it’s nuclear weapons and human rights concerns and the two go hand in hand. Julie has the latest thinking from public policy experts, academics and defectors who are making a new life here in the US. Plus, news of a scholarship fund for  North Koreans who make it out of the country and resettle in America. Interested in North Korea and want more information?
