    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Hyun Lee, Gregory Elich, and Juyeon Rhee, all with the Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea.

    Few countries are as fiercely demonized as the Democratic People.s Republic of Korea — more commonly known as North Korea. The media presents the country as a dangerous and mysterious pariah that lashes out uncontrollably at its neighbors. But as we should come to expect from the corporate media, this is a total distortion. What's the real history of US-North Korean relations? As Donald Trump prepares to become the next president of the United States, what does this mean for the prospects of normalization between the U.S. and the DPRK? What's the situation inside of North Korea? And how does this relate to the geopolitics of the region?

    Lee, Rhee and Elich are involved in the Task Force to Stop THAAD in South Korea and Militarism in Asia and the Pacific. To find out more about their work, visit stopthaad.org or find them on Facebook (Stop THAAD).
