But as the creator of “Sketchcop,” Streed reveals that when interviewing child victims or witnesses, it’s not drawing talent that makes an accurate sketch – it’s great interviewing skills and knowing how to get children to dig deep into their memories.

Thought Provoking and Informative

Kudos to you - thank you. Very well done and eye opening. I can hear your authenticity, compassion, and passion.

Very informative show

Avery Mann is one of the most knowledgeable voices on the issue of crimes against children. His background and experience are unparalleled but most importantly, he combines that knowledge with genuine concern and care about our children and that is what really separates him. I met Avery while we worked together on the Sean Goldman child abduction case and we have stayed in touch for over 10 years. I learn something knew about these issues every time I listen to one of his podcasts even when I already know about some of these cases he discusses.
