I listen to a lot of podcasts while driving, working out, and doing chores around the house. In this weekly feature, I’ll tell you about one episode I particularly enjoyed that week.
I try not to post about legal topics too often because I know most of my readers aren’t lawyers. I think this subject will be interesting even to people who aren’t immersed in the law on a daily basis, though. This week’s podcast recommendation is the ABA Journal’s Modern Law Library episode What Can Neuroscience Tell Us About Crime? This episode is an interview of Kevin Davis about his new book, The Brain Defense: Murder in Manhattan and the Dawn of Neuroscience in America’s Courtrooms. He discusses how jurors perceive and understand science and the potential benefits and drawbacks of using brain scans in court.
