Selective Hearing Radio Ep. 55 – KCON 2022


The Selective Hearing staff, with special guest Ping from LST KPOP, discuss the return of the first in-person KCON in Los Angeles and their various experiences at the three-day event.

Apologies for the lateness of this podcast. It took quite a while to edit since we talked a lot about this event. Because it is a rather long conversation, it is split up into 3 parts for easier consumption.
