At the center of it all lies Seoul, among the largest metro areas in the world. This podcast is a showcase of the diversity of the city and the surrounding areas.

    Ep. 28 – Robert Koehler on Blogging, Travel, and Photography

    Ep. 28 – Robert Koehler on Blogging, Travel, and Photography

    Robert Koehler is a long-time Korea resident, who rose to fame - at least among expats in Korea and those interested in the country - by way of blogging. The Marmots Hole, as his site was called, was for a time arguably the most well-known and well-written blog of its kind. It was certainly a tremendous conduit for those interested in Korean politics, society, history, and just general everyday life here.
    Now Robert spends his time wearing many hats - he writes books, he edits columns, he tours, and he takes photos - beautiful photos. We talk about all of that, his decision to terminate the Marmot, and what it’s like living in Seoul for some two decades.
    You can follow him on instagram at rjkoehler74, and while you’re there check out TooSix Media Group at tsmg_sound. This episode was recorded and co-produced at their studio in Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea. You can also check them out at their website at toosixglobal.com.

    Ep. 27 - Darcie Draudt on Multiculturalism and Korean National Identity

    Ep. 27 - Darcie Draudt on Multiculturalism and Korean National Identity

    Darcie Draudt is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. She is currently in Seoul as a Korea Foundation dissertation fieldwork fellow and a visiting scholar at the Yonsei University Department of Political Science. Darcie's research comprises US-Northeast Asian relations and Korean identity and multiculturalism, and we spend a lot of time on what it means to be Korean today and how the country is grappling with internationalism and growing migration, and how that forces a reconciliation of sorts with traditional - or lets say, conventional - Korean values and perceptions of self. You can connect with Darcie on Twitter, @darciedraudt and view all of her work and current research at darciedraudt.com

    Ep. 25 - Joey Croner on Running a Board Game Cafe and the Game Scene in Korea

    Ep. 25 - Joey Croner on Running a Board Game Cafe and the Game Scene in Korea

    Joey Croner is the founder and owner of The Dice Latte board game cafe in Seoul's Dongdaemun district. In this interview we talk about the market for board games in Korea, what the locals like to play, discuss what it’s like starting one's own business in Korea, and how The Dice Latte distinguishes itself from competitors.
    This last part is hugely important as board games become tremendously popular not just in Korea but seemingly everywhere. Keen listeners to Settlers of Seoul have noticed the name was inspired by a certain board game – a favorite of my friends and family. Anyway, The Dice Latte is a really cool spot and I encourage everyone to check it out - after, of course, listening to this podcast.
