Shit, he's talked to everybody miércoles, 20 de noviembre de 2013

Once you've got access, how do you get people to open up to you?
One way I get them to talk is show them the lengthy list of the other people I've talked to. Even hardened FBI agents get wide-eyed when they see how many names are there. They think, "Shit, he's talked to everybody!" It softens them up a little. First, because they respect me for the effort I've made. And, second, they feel it's pointless to hide anything from me, because somebody else is going to tell me anyway. It's a visual aid that lets people know I'm on the case, and that I'm not likely to be shaken off it.
