My favorite podcast

The Korea Society features great programs on diverse topics, including US-Korea relations, denuclearization negotiations, art, culture, music, business and trade. I love listening to these programs on my way to work. Entertaining and educational!

Great resource for understanding current events on the Korean Peninsula. The contents are diverse and interesting.

Very educational and interesting

I came across this podcast before a trip to Korea to try to learn more about the culture and history and found myself listening to several of the episodes. The podcasts cover many different angles: fairy tales, politics of both the North and the South, relations with the West, business, history, and there is even one about cooking.
I feel like these podcasts have helped me have greater appreciation for the Korean culture and ways of life.

Thank you for publishing for free. Please keep the episodes coming! Highly recommended!

(By the way, I don't remember having any issues with the quality of the audio.)
