Catching Liars

In this segment, Gordon Burghardt introduces us to a snake that plays dead. Then, from a highway median at John F. Kennedy Airport, Paul Ekman tries to teach Jad how to catch a liar the old-fashioned way: by reading their facial expressions. Because if you know where to look, he says, the truth leaks out. We learn more about this truth "leakage" from CIA interrogator Barry L. McManus and Steve Silberman, reporter from Wired magazine. We then return to Ekman for a peek into his personal effort to walk the path of the honest man.
