This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Alexis Dudden. They speak about the ongoing island dispute between Korea and Japan over Dokdo/Takeshima, the validity of each sides claim, the frame this issue now provides for the modern national identity of both countries, and the insight it offers to lingering Japanese-Korean tensions and questions of wartime guilt, apologies and reparations.
