I am Laura Ling, American journalist, author, and former detainee of North Korea, now working on a new web show with Discovery. AMA!
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!
I'm super excited to take all your questions, so let's do this. Ask away!
Edit 1: So many questions! I'm trying to get around to everyone, I promise. :)
Edit 2: Thank you all so much for joining my AMA. I'm not done yet but I'll be wrapping up in half an hour or so from now. Keep throwing questions at me! This is a lot of fun.
Edit 3: This was great! Thank you to everyone who asked a question, even if I couldn't get around to it. If you want to keep up with me and everything I'm doing, I suggest you follow me on twitter. https://twitter.com/lauraling
Thank you so much Reddit, I hope to talk to you all again in the future!
