What's the talk about?

Tours of North Korea are often dismissed as conveyor-belt propaganda shows of the best of the best - a Potemkin charade. North Korea tour leader Robin Tudge challenges this view with an illustrated talk on what you can really see. Robin Tudge is a writer and has been visiting North Korea since 2001, leading five tours there, including running in the April 2016 Pyongyang marathon.
