Fans of Netflix's acclaimed true-crime series "Mindhunter" can now learn about one of the special agents who inspired it all. As the FBI's original mindhunter, John E. Douglas has used advanced psychological techniques to catch some of the most notorious criminals and serial killers of our time. In his new book, The Killer Across the Table, he and co-author Mark Olshaker dig into four real-life cases from Douglas' career — all of which are vastly different, but equally disturbing.
In this episode, Stratfor's Chief Security Officer Fred Burton sits down with both Douglas and Olshaker to discuss the book, as well as Douglas' signature art of criminal profiling.
