Interviewed about 1970s youth culture for the Korea Now Podcast

I was interviewed this weekend by Jed Lea-Henry for the Korea Now Podcast during which we discussed youth culture in Korea in the 1960s and 1970s. He started the podcast a few months ago but already has a number of interesting interviews that are worth checking out. The interview can be heard here.

My most recent Korea Times article, on readers' contributions, or “scribbles,” in weekly magazines published by newspapers in the early 1970s - as translated by the author Ahn Jung-hyo - is also here. Ahn is best known for writing the books Silver Stallion and White Badge, and also wrote a column for the Korea Times called "Viet Vignettes" when Ahn was working in Vietnam as a correspondent in 1967 and 1968 - a topic I'll likely write about in a future column.
