Episode 107: Former FBI Negotiator Gary Noesner
This week we interview Gary Noesner and discuss his book, ”Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator”. Gary spent the majority of his career working for the FBI on cases such as Ruby Ridge, the Branch Davidian Standoff, and the Montana Freemen Standoff.
Gary explains the importance of coordinating force with negotiations, Nick asks how the FBI measures success in hostage situations. Virginia asks Gary about using computers to predict hostage outcomes, and Nick has his mind blown when Gary suggests using negotiation techniques in “real world” situations.
