Good lecture series: I'm six vids into Paul Freedman's History 210.
An MS treatment that works for about half of patients. Unfortunately, it also kills some.
A North Korean envoy called for a joint probe of the Kim Jong Nam assassination. That ain't happening. I don't think the North Koreans understand the concept of social capital. In their world, cooperation is built on fear rather than trust. Unless they plan to attack Malaysia, the Malaysians have absolutely no reason to include them.

This is an interesting chapter in history that I'd never heard about, but somehow the filmmaker managed to craft a film that is at best only mildly interesting.
There was an autopsy of the Russian ambassador.
