Forensic Psychology with Stephanie Streisand! Live from The Pack Theater in Hollywood!

Dave and Jesse hit the Pack Theater (packtheater.com) for a mini-episode as part of the Podcast Party live show. They are joined by writer for TBS's The Detour and one-time Forensic Psychology major, Stephanie Streisand (@StephStreisand), to talk about the fallibility of eye-witness testimony and how an inadvertent hand gesture can subliminally influence memory, plus DNA evidence and how your "Microbial Cloud" can be used to determine where you've been! Science AF (@scienceafpod) is hosted by @daveciaccio and @jessklein1. Find us at scienceafpod.com!
