In a 6-part podcast, host and filmmaker Molly Hermann traces the roots of various forensic techniques and the questions surrounding their accuracy. Each episode will focus on one technique, and is informed by criminal defense attorneys who have challenged the reliability of this evidence in court. The second episode looks at bitemark evidence and the third looks at firearms evidence. The series provides important information about how the techniques work, how they were developed for crime-solving purposes, whether sufficient science exists to support the claims of these methods, and how courts have handled the admissibility of this evidence.
This series is worth a listen to update you on the latest information about these techniques, or as a refresher if you have studied these topics in depth already.
