Hey Darren, really enjoy your podcasts, I know you are winding it down and moving on to The Book of Darren.  But-- have you ever considered getting a DNA expert on to discuss the Cooper case?  Thanks !

    How about Georger?

Only the FBI can explain what they have and the significance of it - Georger tried and failed to set the stage for this years ago.

The problem for the Cooper case now is a total lack of credibility ... on all fronts. Gridlock of competing interests!

Disclaimer, if you haven't listened yet, don't read below as I don't want to ruin for anyone that wants to listen on their own first.

Good interview, highly anticipated.  I have to say though, that I was slightly underwhelmed and maybe even a little disappointed in his answers and lack of any real new insight.  I think I was expecting too much.  He didn't really seem to have payed much attention to some of the topics and analysis discussed by this community, i.e. new parachute information by FJ, dismissed the tie particles as having any potential value.  I guess I thought he would have been more of a Cooper nerd, up to date and current on the latest discussions.  The DNA comments were more or less the same sort of position, seemed like his first comments on the DNA at beginning of interview were that it was important and valuable to case but then seemed to diminish it as having any real potential later in the interview.....I don't know, I need to listen again.

I did like that he came out very definitive on the McCoy topic.  Also same for Reca and the Cle Elum.   Darren mentioned Rackstraw, Carr seemed to glance over it but take away for me was that he was in the same category as other suspects i.e. not credible.

I am going to listen again...thanks Darren.

Great podcast as always, thanks Darren.
 Surprised that Larry subscribes to the no-pull theory though, especially with the lack of evidence and statistical unlikelyhood.

Just finished listening to the Carr interview. Darren does an excellent job because he asks direct questions and lets the person being interviewed speak. He doesn't talk over them or constantly interject.

That's what he does with Carr. He asks simply, direct questions and then let's Carr have the mike.

There was nothing too revealing about the case, but it is enough content to get the Vortex talking. I did find it interesting that Carr admitting to not reading all the 302s when myself and many others have read every word.

It's also clear that Carr has not kept up on the developments in the case over the last 10 - 12 years. He has a casual knowledge of the diatom stuff, the tie particles, etc. I wonder how his opinions on the case would change if and when he learns some of the new details that have presented themselves since he was in charge of the case. For example, how would he square his claim of a Washougal washdown with TK's diatom findings that eliminate that as a possibility?

One thing that is heartening is that Carr is firmly in the FBI flight path camp, and says that the FBI continually researched the flight path over the years and re-interviewed the principal's involved in its development and found no reason to question it.

Also interesting - especially to someone like me who favors a more southerly jump spot - is Carr's claim that there is "some play" with the timing of the jump.
“Completely unhinged”

Congratulations on the Larry Carr interview Darren. Great job. One of the most fascinating DBC related interviews I have had the pleasure of listening to.

Loved the part where Larry volunteered that he had sought immunity for Cooper, in the hope it might get him to come forward. Hardly surprised there was far less enthusiasm for it higher up.

As far as I can tell, no one has asked any member of the flight crew (or even Tina) this simple question.  Did you pass Portland on the east side, west side, or did you fly directly over Portland International Airport?

I'd like to hear more about this. I was surprised that Larry characterized his offer as "going over like a lead balloon," since the Bureau was actively looking to make a deal with DBC in the 1970s and 1980s.
