Radio – not internet or television – hits the widest audience in the world. It is a low cost yet powerful communication medium, capable of reaching even the most remote, isolated and vulnerable people. It has infiltrated closed societies, like the USSR and Eastern Europe during the Cold War, and subverted governments that limit freedom of information as a means of preserving their power. In the case of North Korea, radio is the only non-regime source of real-time information and news available across the whole country.
