Synopsis: In this new podcast series for 2018, The Straits Times takes a close look at one key news talking point each week. 

US President Donald Trump is to meet North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12 for a historic meeting. But with recent North Korean threats to cancel the summit if Washington seeks to push Pyongyang into giving up its nuclear arsenal, will the meeting still happen and what are the possible venues? 

Host and ST's deputy news editor Jeremy Au Yong dissects the issue with ST's foreign editor Zakir Hussain and senior aviation correspondent Karamjit Kaur.
