1st episode was really interesting and had me wanting more! Great job guys, keep up the great work!
Enjoyed following the personal detail and recount of Enoch’s difficult story. Looking forward to next week’s focus. Hum Interviewers also have really great podcast voices! Easy listening… mind-opening experience.
I love that JAYU continues to create a channel of discourse around North Korean human rights violations. I can't wait to hear next weeks topic!
