Why is it good to listen? Unlike many other left-wing political Korean podcasts, this one is much more formal and objective. If you don’t like political discussion with explicit language, you will like this podcast. As two of the podcasters are heavily active in a current South Korean political party, listeners may understand what their viewpoint is.

Length of the podcasts: Each episode is about one hour to two hours long.

Description: The Democratic Party’s former President Hoechan Roh, the former Minister of Health and Welfare Simin Yoo, and the famous debater Professor Junggwon Jin have a serious and deep discussion on current affairs. They point out how they heard about the issue, what their first impression was, why they think this is a problem, and how the people who are responsible can resolve things.

The participants use some slang which is related to the issues. All the hosts and guests have no strong accent in their Korean except Yoo, who speaks with a Pusan accent. The atmosphere is pretty comfortable and casual so the listeners will feel closer to those famous people.
