074: Forensic Science with Mike Haag

17 minutes

Over on my other podcast, The Show About Politics & History, we've been visiting The Sixth Floor Museum to understand what happened when President John F. Kennedy visited Dallas in 1963. Before listening to this episode, I'd recommend listening to those episodes.

Mike Haag is a forensic scientist for Forensic Science Consultants and a senior forensic scientist and supervisor at a crime laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mike started learning about forensic science at an early age from his father, Luke. On this episode of The Show About Science, Mike explains how modern science can debunk the many conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination of JFK.

A quick note for parents. This episode talks about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy which may not be suitable for younger ears.
