What challenges do journalists face when reporting from a secretive regime like North Korea? National Public Radio’s Mary Louise Kelly recently visited North Korea to cover the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding. She referred to her official guide as a “one-man journalism prevention service.”

National Press Club Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Tom Young spoke with her about practicing journalism in a country that tries to place strict controls on all information going in and out for the latest edition of the Club's podcast, Update-1.

Update-1 is produced by Mike Hempen. The podcast can be heard here on the Club's website or on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.
