This episode covers the structure of the Internet Research Agency, the funding and oversight of the IRA, and the methods in which the IRA targeted the 2016 U.S. Election, as part of the "Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election." This podcast covers pages 14 to 35 of the report.

This section is heavily redacted citing, in most cases, "Harm to Ongoing Matter," and we introduce a sound effect to help note the skipped areas of redaction, while trying to provide context for the redactions when possible.
