Interviewing. HUMINT. It’s an essential skill for investigators and reporters, and our webinar guest this week is a pro at both.
We’re wrapping up a great month of articles on witness interviews and criminal defense investigations, including last week’s piece by Colleen Collins about witnesses who are intimidated by threats of violence, Steve Koenig’s essay on the art of GOYAKOD, Bruno Pavlicek’s article on remote interviews, and Mike Spencer’s marvelous philosophical treatise on the work and the life. You can find all our content on interview techniques right here.
To end this month with a bang, we’re hosting webinar guest Oliver Mackson, a public defense investigator and former reporter who’ll share his wisdom about interviewing sources and witnesses.
