Ep 190 | The Real CSIs

Crime dramas are a staple of American television culture. For decades, shows like CSI, How to Get Away with Murder, Magnum PI and many others have captured our imagination and given us a peek at the world of criminal science. But like with anything you see on TV, what happens in these shows is not always the same as what happens in real life, no matter how “accurate” the shows may seem. Our guest today is Jennifer Mihalovich, a DNA Technical Leader with the Oakland Police Department for almost 20 years. In total, Jennifer has over 35 years of experience in forensic science. Today we are going to have her shed some light on the real world of forensic crime solving.
