David B. Mann ('94) wanted to expose more people to Korean music after seeing the popularity of the "Gangnam Style" music video. So he created The Flying Burrito podcast devoted to bands based in the Hongdae area of Seoul, near Hongik University.
"Imagine UNT in the heart of the 10th most populated city in the world, throw in the live clubs from Deep Ellum and multiply it by 10," he says.
Mann lived in South Korea for five years and credits his radio/television/film major and time at NT Scene and KNTU for giving him the tools to create the podcast. He wants to have his own television show exploring the music of countries around the world.
