Guest: Ryan Berkebile (website)

Seoul has obliterated a lot of its history in the mad rush to progress. Only in recent years has the government required archaeological surveys before major construction in certain locations. Korea’s small passionate urban exploring community catalogs the areas that the government thinks aren’t royal enough to matter. One of these “urbexers” joins us to tell us about his journeys, how to get involved, and how urban exploring has educated him about Korean culture.
