Podcast on Forensic Science

basscov.jpgToday, we are talking in our studio with Dr. Bill Bass, a renowned forensic anthropologist here in Knoxville and Jon Jefferson, a documentary filmmaker and writer who are the authors of one of my favorite books, Death's Acre: Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab the Body Farm Where the Dead Do Tell Tales. The book tells the amazing story of how Dr. Bass came to found the Body Farm, where he and his colleagues have solved a number of murder mysteries with the use of forensic anthropology. Bass's body farm became famous after mystery writer Patricia Cornwell wrote her best-selling book, The Body Farm,based on his research facility.

Jefferson Bass, as the team are referred to, now have a couple of novels, Carved in Bone: A Body Farm Novel and Flesh and Bone: A Body Farm Novel,that are intriguing case histories based on Dr. Bass's work.

We also hear about Bass's latest case--finding out how J. P. Richardson, better know as " The Big Bopper" really died in the famous plane crash of 1959. Do you have an interest in forensic science and how it really solves murders? Hint: it's not like what you see on CSI.

I'm listening now. The ones with guests in the studio sound really good. I know you get great guests on the phone but I like the live ones.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree that the sound is much better in the studio--but are our guests really going to fly to Knoxville to talk with us at their expense or ours?
