The next weekly episode is scheduled for coming Friday. You’ll hear more on our reporting from colleagues in Indonesia and Nepal.

The display at a gift shop at the Seasons of Yangon International Airport Hotel has a sign that says, “Pangolin scales, freshly ground on site.” They also offer to pulverize the scales on site.

We’re also very proud to be featured on 故事 FM(StoryFM), a hugely popular Chinese-language podcast that’s often compared to “This American Life” in the U.S. in terms of audience, reach and content. The episode is based on Jiaming and Tin’s reporting in Myanmar.

You can listen to the episode on their sitePocket CastsSpotifyiTunesWeChat or on your favourite podcast platform.

And Hawaii Public Radio released an extensive two-part interview with our managing editor, Patrick Boehler, as part of their Helping Hand series. You can listen to part one here, and part two here. Each episode is about 10min long. They will give you an overview of what we’ve found and what we plan to do next.
