Here is a link to a story on NPR’s “Fresh Air” program on the Reid technique and false confessions generally. Some interesting stuff, although a lot of it will be repetitious for those with a basic knowledge of these topics. There’s also discussion of a different interview technique, called the PEACE technique, that is gaining some popularity. The interviewee, Douglas Starr, has an article (subscription required) on the same subjects in the New Yorker this month.
