As South Korea prepares to host the 2018 Winter Olympics just a short drive from its border with North Korea, we sit down to discuss security at the games in this episode of the podcast.

From heightened political tension with North Korea to the ongoing security threats facing every iteration of the games, Stratfor Chief Security Office Fred Burton shares his experience working security at the Olympics during his time with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service. He’s joined by Stratfor Worldview Contributor Austin Duckworth, a doctoral student in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education at The University of Texas at Austin. Duckworth’s work focuses on the intersection of security, international politics and sports.
