Month in Review

North Korea watchers were rudely awoken Saturday morning by news that the DPRK had launched a series of so-called “projectiles” off its east coast.

And as state media footage emerged the following morning, it became clear that one of the weapons tested by North Korea was a new-type short-range ballistic missile — representing the first such test of its kind by Pyongyang since November 2017.

Hoping to make sense of these developments and more, host Jacco Zwetsloot was joined by NK News CEO Chad O’Carroll, managing editor Oliver Hotham, and senior analyst Minyoung Lee to discuss missiles, state media, and the mysteries of the North Korean economy.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interviews with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
