Episode #301: Voices of Global Freedom Radio interviews Ben Mack, Clandestine American Journalist who Penetrates North Korean Wall
"For eight days, I lived undercover, hiding the truth from my traveling companions and near-ubiquitous military guards. . . .Panic shot through me when the North Koreans looked at my passport, inside which was my worker's permit for Germany which states I'm a journalist . . . Fortunately they couldn't read the German" as Ben Mack wrote for the business insider.
Mack ducked and worked around ever present North Korean security agents for seven days. He was arrested and tried in a Communist Kangaroo Court for taking prohibited pictures of a statue of Kim Il Sung.
He was forced to renounce his crime or be sent to a concentration camp. Many don't survive the harsh conditions in these communist camps. Find Ben Mack: https://twitter.com/benaroundearth

Music Journalist Alli Marshall has begun the promotional tour for her first novel, How to Talk to Rockstars, which was inspired by her years of interviewing musicians. The Western New York native was transplanted to Western North Carolina via Goddard College where she earned her MFA in Creative Writing before landing a job as the arts & entertainment reporter at Asheville’s alt-weekly news and arts paper, Mountain Xpress. A dozen years later she’s still at it, regularly interviewing musicians and artists of all genres, reviewing albums and writing articles. She also serves as the arts section editor at Xpress.
Musician, songwriter and performer Joey Stuckey has no boundaries. In his spare time, we're guessing he never sleeps, he is a producer, adjunct professor, TV show host, studio engineer - at his own Shadow Studios - husband, and very active in his community of Macon, Georgia. He's worked with and is highly respected by many of music's luminaries. While in Nashville working a production gig with legendary Alan Parsons he suggested a subtle change with one of the instruments would greatly improve the recording. After testing the idea, Parsons deferred to his judgement and followed it by directing the crew to follow Stuckey's direction without question. Yet even the Eye In The Sky guy likely never imagined he would see video proof of the Macon guitar slinger carjacking a woman's BMW to get to a gig in the video for his Blues song Blind Man Drivin'.
Mme Perry also had a few surprise guests that night!
