Rachna is going to need Rachel to step up her friend game. In the late 90s, Dennis Rodman was basketball’s bad boy, and Kim Jong Un was a young student obsessed with the Chicago Bulls. What follows is almost a decade of bizarre fair weather friendship between the misunderstood super star and the temperamental dictator, filled with photo ops, pseudo-diplomacy, and hostage negotiations over Twitter. PLUS, the man who witnessed it all, former Vice Media correspondent Ryan Duffy stops by to give us all the juicy details of his trip to North Korea.
