New Podcast: Unification through Sports Diplomacy

The decision for North Korea to send athletes to the 2018 Winter Olympics is monumental. Not only are the games hosted in South Korea, but the two countries will play games under a unified flag. This podcast, jointly hosted by Talyn Rahman-Figueroa and Jeannette Viens, looks into how sports diplomacy is used as a tool for unification whilst also examining how international sports can be used as a vehicle for propaganda.
