Back to today's show.
If you've listened Episodes 2, 10, 20 and 21, you've heard regular guest Jonathan Fowler. If you haven't heard those episodes, Jonathan graduated with a BA in history from Indiana University in 2006. He is an unabashed left-wing political junkie. He has lived and worked in South Korea for over 9 years, trying to help the citizens of that great nation, hopefully, "talk pretty one day."
On July 31, Jonathan told me he knew a Korean woman who would be interested in being a guest. He said her name was Kim So-hee. She had been a member of his book club for a month. After I contacted her, this is the biographical paragraph she sent back:“I'm the person who is figuring out my life. I really don't have name that I wanna be called. But just for now, you can call me so hee because I haven't found right name for myself. I'm interested in my own mental health and my own happiness. If there's anything against it, I wouldn't join it or let it affects me. I have interests about self-love (or self-esteem), relationships, feminism and anything about minority (but only connected my own condition). I'm challenging or doing in my life things like acting, singing, dancing, sex education, meeting total strangers, sharing opinions, recognizing my own thoughts and feelings and organizing it through writing, finding out myself in diverse way, meeting a shrink and taking pills, being more intimate with who have cared about me (or cares) and solving my family issues on my own etc. I'm really interesting, attractive and sensitive person. I try to be more clear about myself and I know I'm in my progress. Therefore I support myself as best I can.”
And now, on to the show.
