By: Michael Roth. Comments (7) Seamus Kirby I enjoyed the introduction, it sounded like a professional podcast. I don't think that lie detectors should be allowed in court, because it is not 100% accurate. I would like to know more about the Russian scientist you talked to, do you have access to any papers he's published? Lexus Forman The information was very insightful. Made great points and I think that this is a great topic to argue. The flow of your podcast is great and the theme music was great. Sounded professional. One question that I have is what states in the United States use lie detector test? Ethan Reese Polygraphs are unreliable and shouldn't be considered in trials. I enjoyed his facts and fancy man terms. Use of a real doctors interview was awesome. What is the credibility of this russian doctor? Taylor Veasley I did this topic also and I really enjoyed how you explained the process of lie detectors and FMRIs in a common language. I believe that FMRI are not able to be used in the court room at this point in time but that one day it will be useful and will be of more help than the classic method. I enjoyed the music, and the introduction. I liked how creative you were with the interviews. How many judges will allow the FMRIs to be used in their courtroom? Karly Bornstein -My thoughts on this topic are, I think that in some ways it's harder to tell if people are lying or not. I think that it can be really hard to tell once it comes down to it. -Your had really nice transitions, and your audio kept me engaged with the music and other people putting their input. -Are people said as guilty more often because of lie detectors? - Jamie Murphy Good points and information. I liked the set up of your podcast, nice intro. Lie detectors are very sketchy and not 100% reliable. Jamie Murphy Good points and information. I liked the set up of your podcast, nice intro.
