Here is Bill Browder's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. He also made an appearance on Planet Money recently, which made for a very good episode. You should read his book Red Notice, too.
The internet gave us some amazing long reads this week. Here is a blog-ish series about some Germans who disappeared in Death Valley in 1996. This write-up is better than most BOOKS I have read this year. (Accompanying map.)
And finally, this article from the Amazon Washington Post about a woman who thought she was Irish...and then she took a DNA test.
