From the desk of journalist and podcast host Evan Ratliff.
> In my latest for Bloomberg Businessweek, I wrote about how a traffic stop in Tulsa launched a massive investigation into an alleged $545 million catalytic converter theft ring, during which one police officer was killed and another grew obsessed with “cutting the head off the snake”
> I attended the Supreme Court oral arguments in Samia v. United States and wrote about the latest twist in the saga of Paul Le Roux and the case at the heart of TheMastermind. (In late June, the Court ruled against Samia.)
> For my latest feature in Business Insider, I wrote about the two years I spent stalking thousands of AI-generated faces around the web, the personas they represent, and what it means when most of what you see online is fake.
