Without You, there is no Us: My Time with the Sons of North Korea’s Elite
Description: Suki Kim knew North Korea was a world where the elite invented their own truth. In 2011 she got a job teaching English to the teenage sons of the country’s ruling class at an exclusive university. She kept notes on her experience, saving them on portable flash drives which she carried with her everywhere lest they fall into the wrong hands. Suki joins us today with her story.
Suki is the author of “The Interpreter” and “Without You, there is no Us.” She was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and has been traveling to North Korea as a journalist since 2002. Suki is a recipient of Guggenheim, Fullbright and Open Society fellowships.

Should a Chaste Catholic with Same-Sex Attraction “Celebrate” their Gayness?
Description: We’re following up our open line discussion from last week on the lives of chaste Catholics who are same-sex attracted. Is it appropriate for two people who are same-sex attracted to live together chastely and offer each other support? Should a Catholic who is same-sex attracted view their orientation as a gift from God or a cross to bear? We discuss the issues with Fr. Paul Check, founder of Courage.
