About This Show
A Long Road Home is a series of real-world stories about the people who work in the on-demand economy. If you’re anything like me, you probably use your phone on a daily basis to get help from people you’ve never met before through services like lyft, uber, instacart, and rinse. These types of businesses make it easy to get help while simultaneously increasing our interactions with strangers every day. My goal for this podcast is to tell some of the amazing stories of the people behind the apps that you use every day.

What is life really like in North Korea? Is it really as bad as what we hear about in the news? Ben interviews Chole Ryu, a refugee from North Korea, who survived a lifetime of daring experiences and escapes, and now lives in the South Bay, where he works for the on-demand ride-sharing service, Lyft, and studies software engineering. In the first episode of this season, Charles tells us about what life is like in North Korea, why he was abandoned by his family background, and how he attempted to escape (for the first time...). Charles tells us his first-hand experience growing up in the dictatorship. It is a story of courage, determination, and at times sheer luck!
