This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with John Sweeney. They speak about the strange cold war links between the North Korean Regime under Kim Il-sung, and both Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and the socialist branch of the Irish Republican Army (IRA).
John Sweeney is a career journalist and author. With numerous books and documentaries under his belt, John has reported from conditions of war and revolution in countries such as Algeria, Iraq, Bosnia, Chechnya and Romania. He has also produced works of investigative journalism on Scientology, Cot Death and Donald Trump. His BBC Panorama documentary and matching book on North Korea are both titled ‘North Korea Undercover’.
