Show #113 (season 6, show 30/season finale)

Debut: FRIDAY, DEC. 14 (7:30-8:10 p.m. ET/PT)

"Back in the Dark": VICE Media founder Shane Smith has been traveling to North Korea for years, including during some of the most acrimonious periods in its history. Now, the country is engaged in a charm offensive and appears to be slowly emerging from isolation. In the wake of a series of inter-Korean summits and the first ever DPRK-U.S. summit, Smith returns to the Korean peninsula to see how Seoul and Pyongyang are reacting to the new détente.

"California Burning": California is experiencing its worst wildfire season in a decade, and November's Camp Fire was the deadliest, most destructive fire in the state's recorded history. While the increasingly severe effects of climate change are partially to blame, another culprit may also be at play, according to a new government report. Gianna Toboni travels to the scorched town of Paradise to learn how California can survive a future of deadlier fires.
