Forensic Linguistics: Untangling Tricky Talk

I have a confession to make - I only got an iPod once a friend convinced me of the merits of university course podcasts. I've since become "addicted" to several technical, news, and business podcasts and would not have it any other way.

One of the podcasts I enjoy on a frequent basis is All in the Mind, by ABC Radio National (Australia). Last week's episode was titled "Untangling Tricky Talk" and covered forensic linguistics as well as transcription by deaf people. The forensic linguistic portion was centered around an interview of Paul Foulkes, who gave a very professional account of his discipline.
