In this week’s episode, A’ndre and Ryan speak with leading North Korea expert Dr. Sue Mi Terry about the “Hermit Kingdom”. Dr. Terry, who served as a CIA analyst, Deputy National Intelligence Officer, and NSC Director, provides her assessment of the Trump-Kim Summits and how the Biden Administration will approach the Kim regime. She also breaks-down the vertical of power in North Korea and outlines why Kim Jong Un and his family have maintained power since the country’s inception. Dr. Terry also recounts her conversations with defectors to illustrate the extent of North Korea’s repressive system and how this prevents the North Korean people from altering their political situation. The conversation concludes with an analysis of the North Korean nuclear threat and the potential for meaningful denuclearization.
