We are back! Welcome to Season 2 of DIE-ALOGUE: a true crime conversation! We are kicking it off STRONG with power couple, David Rudolf and Sonya Pfeiffer - married attorneys who are now focused entirely on wrongful conviction cases. You will hear all about how their podcast came to be and their impassioned perspectives on the American criminal justice system. You probably know David from his work representing Michael Peterson, and his scene stealing presence in Netflix's The Staircase, but this might be your first introduction to Sonya, an award winning journalist who covered the Peterson trial, and then decided to go to law school. Together, they now practice law  together. Sonya and David are also owners of a contemporary art gallery in Durham, NC, and if you think that isn't relevant, just wait until the end of our conversation! Thank you, David and Sonya, for killing the small talk!

Coerced confessions. Fabricated evidence. Arresting and prosecuting the innocent. The United States justice system commits wrongs of every degree against the very people it's supposed to protect: us.


From Campfire & Acast Studios comes a brand new 10-episode podcast series that tells real-life stories of abuses of power in our criminal justice system that sometimes reflect incompetence but often involve intentional wrongdoing. Award-winning journalist and criminal defense attorney, Sonya Pfeiffer, and her husband and law partner, David Rudolf dive deep into each case, providing listeners with an overview of the abuse that occurred, interviewing those directly involved – including defendants, lawyers, experts and family members – and also highlighting the fallout of the untold stories of those impacted.

REPLAY - The Preparation Paradox: High-Stakes Meetings with David Rudolf, The Staircase

Play
Read more

Summer break! Time to replay one of my most downloaded episodes. 

In 2018, I invited David Rudolf onto the show because of the communication excellence he demonstrated as Michael Peterson's attorney in 'The Staircase' on Netflix. But when listening to our conversation again nearly two years later, I'm equally impressed by David's personal leadership. He has a strong sense of purpose (fighting the Abuse of Power), he's very open about his strengths and weaknesses and how they impact others (sometimes it almost seems like he's citing a 'How to Handle Me' memo) and he's well tuned into his feelings, for example when selecting jurors or when deciding whether he has prepared enough to do well in court.

In our conversation, David shares many great anecdotes from his more than 40 years as an attorney. He also talks about the strategies he uses during cross examination, why transparency is key in bad news conversations and how he's able to perform at his peak when the stakes couldn't be higher.

For more detailed information about this episode, visit the original show notes on www.meetingstrategist.org/david-rudolf And if you enjoy listening to David Rudolf, he has his own podcast now. In 'Abuse of Power', David and co-host Sonya Pfeiffer spotlight cases of significant injustice, which often result in a wrongful prosecution or conviction.

DAVID RUDOLF - STAIRCASE NETFLIX

Play
Read more

For me, the importance of The Staircase is not whether an owl was involved in some way in Kathleen Peterson’s death. I believe the importance of the documentary lies in exposing the flaws of the criminal justice system in general and junk science in particular.

But since that topic has generated such interest, I will provide my thoughts on the “owl theory” here, to respond to the questions and skepticism expressed on social media.

First, I do not “know” whether the owl theory is true. No one will ever “know” that. The best any of us can do is to weigh the evidence and consider how it stacks up against the other theories advanced to explain Kathleen’s scalp injuries.

And that, at the end of the day, is the key question in this case – what caused the injuries to Kathleen Peterson’s scalp?

Those were the injuries that actually caused her death. Exsanguination was the cause of death – not blunt force trauma to her brain, not a fractured skull, not strangulation. Loss of blood. So, what caused those wounds?

We thought in 2003 they were due to the scalp “splitting” when her head hit a flat surface, such as a wall or a floor, as explained by Werner Spitz in Episode 1. Our experts did not believe there were 7 separate impacts to her head, as the prosecution argued, but rather only three impacts – which caused “splits” on her scalp, as shown in the autopsy photos. But in 2003, none of us considered whether any of those scalp wounds might have been inflicted by a bird of prey. It just never crossed my mind. I wish it had.

The Preparation Paradox: High-Stakes Meetings with David Rudolf, 'The Staircase' - MS006

Play
Read more

My guest on this episode is criminal defense attorney David Rudolf. I’ve been wanting to interview David ever since I watched ‘The Staircase’ on Netflix. In this documentary series, David represents Michael Peterson, an American novelist whose wife was found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their North Carolina mansion. 

When watching the documentary, I was deeply impressed with David’s professional performance. Not only because of his legal expertise, but also because of his communication skills and his ability to connect with people – both in and outside the courtroom.

Our conversation offers interesting ideas and lessons for professionals who regularly find themselves in high-stakes meetings. We discuss the questioning strategies David uses during cross examination and jury selection, why transparency is key in bad news conversations and how he's able to perform at his peak when the stakes couldn’t be higher.

You’ll also learn how David gets buy-in from his clients for the crucial decisions in a case, which I think is useful for anyone managing or implementing change in organizations.

Here are some of the episode’s highlights with timestamps:

  • 12:02 – “You can’t expect people to be completely honest with you the first time they meet you”

  • 19:17 – Putting on a protective cape: the role of preparation in building confidence

  • 24:44 – The structure David used as a young attorney when interviewing jurors

  • 35:42 – Wiping down the blow poke: the importance of listening in court

  • 40:30 – Behind the scenes of a challenging meeting in a potential death penalty case
  • 53:40 – Selecting jurors: a personal click is more important than the profile

  • 1:02:15 – Good fact, bad fact: how to tackle tunnel vision
