How Police Sketch Artists Read Your Mind

How Police Sketch Artists Read Your Mind

A fascinating episode of Gimlet’s Every Little Thing podcast. Have you ever wondered how sketch artists can draw suspects described by witnesses? It’s not that I doubted their drawing abilities, but judging from myself: I’d find it super difficult to describe a person’s face, anyone’s face really, even my own. That’s exactly what this episode is about: How does a sketch artist access your fuzzy memories? Listen to it now. (after you’ve listened to it, here’s the Instagram link you’re looking for)


From Weekly Filet #290, in February 2020.
