S1 Ep2: Forensic Botany & Ecology

S1 Ep2: Forensic Botany & Ecology

By Lynda La Plante and Cass Sutherland

Lynda and Cass kick off their new podcast series by exploring the fascinating world of forensic botany and ecology with leading expert Professor Patricia Wiltshire. 

The team discuss how plant regrowth can be used to track a killer’s path months after a crime was committed and the infamous Soham murders – a case that Patricia's botanical evidence helped to crack and a trail that Lynda attended.

Over seven episodes, Lynda and Cass will investigate seven branches of forensics: discussing their own experiences, talking with experts, hearing how real life crime scenes are worked, exploring the latest innovations and demonstrating how CSI fact is even more thrilling than CSI fiction.
  If you want to know what criminal investigation is like in real life, then get ready for a podcast that puts YOU at the crime scene.
