Joe Rogan’s Interview With North Korean Defector Is Being Called His ‘Best Episode Ever’
The North Korean defector sat down with the podcaster to talk about the harrowing life she led in the Hermit Kingdom, the things she endured, the horrors she witnessed and the daring escape that she made.
The more than three-hour interview is certainly not for the faint hearted and she goes into detail what the conditions are like inside the most secretive country in the world.
In one section Yeonmi spoke about the vast amounts of starvation that occurs in parts of North Korean.
“The hardest thing as a child for me was when my mum goes away to find food. We don’t have phones, we don’t have letters. If I say goodbye to her, I don’t know when I’m going to see her again or if I’m ever going to see her again,” she said.
“Because she could have [been] killed, and raped and starved.”
She said she was never taught to feel bad for all the dead bodies she would see every day scattered around the place.
