This week I wrote recap 74 (Season 6 Episode 10 “Chocolate Chip Nookie”) in my ongoing series of recaps of the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black and you can also check out the Guide to my recaps of the entire series.

Research Death Penalty:

The vast majority of the research that we discussed during this podcast episode is exhaustively footnoted in Mr. Garrett’s book.

Two that were not covered: I made reference to the recent Uniform Crime Report and Brandon discussed the Reid Technique of interrogation.
