In this week's episode, an interview with Bill Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management and at one time the largest foreign investor in Russia. He's now on a crusade to bring to justice those responsible for the tragic death in prison of one of his lawyers, Sergei Magnitsky. Browder sat down with RFE/RL's Gregory Feifer and Irina Lagunina.
Correspondent Robert Coalson talks with famous tech author and blogger Evgeny Morozov, whose new book, "The Net Delusion," posits that authoritarian governments have benefited immensely from the Internet and social networking sites.
RFE/RL's Charles Recknagel visits the children of Aqibi Silo, a neighborhood of the Afghan capital, Kabul. These kids spend their days, not in school, but hauling water up and down a hillside so that their friends and families can drink and have enough money to eat.
And Daisy Sindelar casts an arched eyebrow at the latest career moves of Anna Chapman, the sultry former Russian spy whose latest gig finds her hosting a new TV show called "Secrets of the World." How much intelligence is involved is another question.
