True Crime False Memory

Listens: 0


True crimes, false memories, misidentifications and wrongful convictions. This podcast brings you true stories of innocent people who were falsely accused, mistakenly identified and put on trial for crime they didn’t commit. In each episode we explore a different case; starting with the crime, moving though the investigation, on to the trial; and of course, culminating in the verdict. Hosted by forensic psychologist Dr. Mitchell Eisen.
