The Panama Papers

This week, we sat down with Weinberg Profs. Jeffrey Winters and Jordan Gans-Morse to discuss the “Panama Papers,” or the 11.5 million documents detailing financial and client information about offshore companies administered by Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The documents, leaked to journalists more than a year ago, started making waves in early April when those journalists started publishing their first stories about the information in the papers. Since then, the Icelandic prime minister has resigned and several other political leaders have found themselves in hot water as a result of the documents’ contents. Winters, who studies elites and the wealthy, and Gans-Morse, who focuses on corruption, walked us through what, exactly, firms like Mossack Fonseca do, as well as the impact of these documents’ release.

Buckley Crist and the Unibomber

Welcome to the first edition of Office Hours, a Daily Northwestern podcast in which co-hosts Madeline Fox and Jeremy Margolis sit down with Northwestern professors to discuss current and historical events. For our first episode, we sat down with McCormick Prof. Buckley Crist, who in 1978 received the first bomb sent by Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. Crist, who was in his fifth year of teaching at the time, received the bomb after it was found with his name as the return addressee in a parking lot on the University of Illinois at Chicago’s campus. It was then delivered to him at the Technological Institute, where it detonated. Crist discusses the 1978 bomb, its aftermath, and his memories of the Unabomber’s nearly 18-year bombing campaign.
