In 2016, the Drug Enforcement Administration even issued a warning to cops about the dangers of such encounters. The stories have made national news, but they've also invited skepticism.

We Podded Ourselves The Whole Gun This is it. The last episode of the only Sopranos podcast ever made. Load it into a yellow Xterra, push the Nissan out to sea, and set it ablaze for a proper New Jersey Italian Viking funeral. Joining Matt and Vince to discuss “Made In America” and close out the series, the Dennis Eckersly of podcasting, from Defector, David J. Roth. Where were you when The Sopranos cut o black? Screaming at the TV? Calling your cable company? Remembering 9/11? 11.9 million people watched (there better be just as many people listening to this episode) as Meadow parked, Tony looked up, and Journey implored everyone watching to continue believing. Believe in what exactly? What was David Chase trying to tell us with that song? Considering he chose Don't Stop Believing just because everyone in the production crew hated it, I think he was trying to say *mouthfarrrrrrt*. What a sh*thead legend. That's what a grown-up AJ would do. You don't like the song at the end of the TV show? You know we're killing civilians in the Middle East everyday right? And this is how you spend your time? Upset at the song at the end of your favorite TV show? What rough beast yeets towards Bethlehem to be born. As indicated by this final, AJ-centric episode, the world belongs to the AJs now. Be safe and don't use too many slurp juices on one ape. It's been an honor to be a part of such a fun thing that so many people enjoyed. We had a  great time making it, and it wouldn't have been possible without all our guests, cured meats,  the decline of the American Empire, classic rock, autotune, HBO, David Beckham, fish and chips, *Borat voice* our wives,  Raytheon, New Jersey, George Soros, The Sopranos sound design team, Prozac, track suits, Stevie B, Little Steven, Steve Buscemi, The American Italian Anti-Defamation League, and of course, Stephen Jenkins.

However when the movement of Nazism started to pick up, he found that the easiest way for him to continue his work was to join Hitler's military. With the help of Jewish slave labor, under the threat of death, Wenher was able to make even further discoveries with rocket science.

Seohyun Lee was born and raised in central Pyongyang, North Korea. She went to China to study when she was a sophomore at Kim Il Sung University and earned her bachelor's degree of Science in Finance from Dongbei University of Economics and Finance in 2014. She defected from North Korea in October 2014 during a heightened period of brutal purges by the Kim Jong Un regime. With her long- term vision to build a liberal democratic system and bring freedom in North Korea, she pursues further graduate studies an currently runs a YouTube channel ‘Pyonghattan' with her brother. Our conversation started with language and Seohyun made it clear that rather than being called a defector or escapee, she prefers the term North Korean freedom seeker. She had done nothing wrong before leaving her country and wants to find a term that best encapsulates that sense of innocence and positivity. She spoke about her childhood in North Korea: what toys she had, what games she played, and what school was like. She also recounted the pressures of trying to stay warm in the country during the cold winters. She explained dating culture in North Korea, shopping, drinking, and the dangers of watching South Korean content. In terms of politics, Seohyun finds problems with the theocratic leadership in North Korea rather than the citizens. She paints a picture of what socialism means in the country in day-to-day life and describes the misconceptions and misunderstandings that many have about the country. Finally, she gave us her views on life, its meaning, and what the future holds.
