SIXTH HOUR: The Wrongful Conviction of Brendan Dassey

The Reformers: Inside the Interrogation Room

July 18, 2021

It’s lawful for police to use a variety of psychological techniques to induce suspects to confess including lying about evidence, accusatory questioning, and stomping their size tens up the nine steps of the REID technique because well, that’s what they’ve been taught. But times are a’changing.

In this episode of the Sixth Hour, my guests provide alternative, strategic interrogation practices grounded in science and rooted in humanity, what a revolution right?

Join me as we step into the interrogation room of Brendan Dassey and others with Dave Thompson, Partner and President of Wicklander Zulawski, a world-leading interrogation training organisation, Matt Jones a detective and Director at Evocavi Group which provides strategic investigative interview training that is grounded in decades of social science research. And retired homicide detective and author James Trainum who now reviews, consults, trains, and instructs on wrongful conviction cases, specialising in the field of false confessions.
