Every Monday, one Marketplace staff member offers their favorite stories from the past week. Here’s some of the journalism that caught my attention this past week.

  • Rob Schmitz gave us a complete web package on the toxic harvests in China — check out all the pictures and video he captured on the field.
  • Peter O’Dowd went above and beyond on this web exclusive. He got the guy who bought a pair of Google Glasses — and the story of what happened next.
  • Krissy Clark got an early in with the guys whose job it was to sift through video evidence — and updated her online piece as the Boston story developed.
