Criminal Profilers Investigate Murderous Minds

To catch a killer, it can take a lot more than just dusting for fingerprints. Criminal profilers use psychological clues to figure out what motivates a murderer and anticipate the killer's next move. Author Malcolm Gladwell and former F.B.I. agent John Douglas explain how profilers get inside criminal minds.

Guests:

Malcolm Gladwell, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of the article "Dangerous Minds: Criminal Profiling Made Easy"; also author of the books The Tipping Point and Blink

John Douglas, former FBI agent and one of the first criminal profilers; author of Mindhunter and Inside the Mind of BTK
