About the Laura Ling Interview

My short bio: Hey everyone! Laura Ling here. I'm an American journalist, author, and if you remember back in 2009, I was detained by the North Korean government for over four months. Now I'm working with Discovery Digital Networks on an exciting new network called Seeker. I've been getting to cover some fascinating things like visiting an American town without wifi as well as touring a lab that produces 3D printed Rhino horns that might help solve poaching!
