On this week’s mini-episode, Katy interviews Matt Harding—you know, that crazy American guy who danced with people all over the world and taped himself doing it? His videos dancing alone and with locals, in front of some of the most recognizable monuments in the world and in some of the most remote places in the world, have garnered over 40 million views since he started back in 2008.

In this mid-week mini-interview, Matt explains how he came to discover that everyone in the world is, essentially, the same, and how dancing is one of the most universal and unifying human impulses. He also describes how he managed to record himself dancing with locals in North Korea at Kim Jung Il’s very last birthday celebration in 2011.

Find Matt Harding at his website, Where the Heck is Matt?, or connect with him on Facebook or Twitter.

Watch the original 2008 video that started it all (look for Katy in the Seattle crowd!) or the 2012 video.
