In this episode, Eric and Glenn start the show discussing a few kind emails and reviews of this podcast. They also talk about a weekly social event online—an online Happy Hour on Discord for Latent Print Examiners and friends of the show. In the main segment, the guys review Hundl et al. (2019) “Implementation of a Blind Quality Control Program in a Forensic Laboratory” in the Journal of Forensic Sciences. This research paper discusses the results of introducing over 140 realistic ground truth cases, without the analysts’ awareness that the case is a test case, at the Houston Forensic Science Center (HFSC) in Houston, Texas, over a period of several years.
