FROM THIS EPISODE

FBI Director James Comey announced the results of an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers while she was Secretary of State. The FBI is not recommending any charges be brought against her, but Comey said Clinton did email classified information, leaving it vulnerable to foreign hackers, contrary to what she’s claimed. So Clinton won’t face prosecutorial consequences, but what about political consequences? Then, a Canoga Park man was killed by CHP officers following an illegal street racing rally. What have the LAPD and Highway Patrol been doing to crack down on street racing? Next, journalist Suki Kim wrote a 2014 best-seller about her time undercover as a teacher in North Korea. At the time, Kim prepared herself for a backlash from North Korea; but what she did not expect was an even greater backlash at home in the United States. And finally, exploring the new LA food trend of food halls with Katherine Spiers.

How Journalist Suki Kim Became a Reluctant Memoirist 14 MIN, 16 SEC

The media in North Korea is tightly controlled by the government. The few foreign journalists let inside the country are strictly supervised, given access only to carefully orchestrated state-sanctioned events. They’re prevented from talking freely with anyone, so it’s nearly impossible for the rest of the world to learn what life really is like there. That’s why investigative journalist Suki Kim decided to go undercover as a teacher in the capital Pyongyang. Over a period of six months, she secretly wrote hundreds of pages of notes, and then smuggled them out of the country. The result of her undercover reporting was her book “Without You, There Is No Us: My Time With the Sons of North Korea’s Elite.” When it was published in the fall of 2014, Suki Kim had prepared herself for a backlash from North Korea. But what she did not prepare for was an even greater backlash at home in the United States.
