American in North Korea

NPR's Eric Weiner reports on an American who has lived and worked in North Korea for more than three years. Originally sent to help North Korea build power plants, John Hoag experienced a communist culture of guarded dialogue and secretiveness. Hoag describes a country struggling to balance hard poverty with national pride.
