Cold Links: nonfiction yarns

These are longreads that I recommend because they're just good yarns. There's usually not a broader lesson. I don't read tons of these so you probably have better ones (send them in!) but these are good.

A few in the "insane stories about long cons" genre:

Pretty incredible political murder mystery, If you want the quick version check out the first paragraph of this bonkers Wikipedia page (but it will "spoil" the article). I think the article doesn't add much except the pleasure of consuming a crazy story slowly. Which is something.

Great yarn from Reddit that I won't spoil (might not be true, but good either way).

2-hour video on a former Christian explaining his conversion to atheism. I recommend converting it to an mp3 and listening to it like a podcast, since the visuals add ~nothing. I found this really fascinating and moving, just a very honest and thorough account of how someone changed their mind.
