‘Last Week Tonight’ Enlists Helen Mirren to Voice the US Senate Torture Report Audio Book

Not many people have bothered to read the released version of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s interrogation program, so just in time for last night’s episode, Last Week Tonight made the 500-page summary more appealing to read by bringing in Helen Mirren to read the audio book version. With the exception of an executive order that could be overturned by the next president, no restrictions have been put in place on the US’s “enhanced interrogation” techniques, so hopefully with the help of Mirren’s relaxing audio book torture report, more Americans will learn that torture isn’t as effective as 24 makes it seem.
