Australian True Crime podcast marks 100th episode

PRESS RELEASE — May 6, 2019

One of Australia’s most popular podcasts will hit 100 episodes on 9 May.

Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb will mark the milestone with a special in-depth episode and some live events in Melbourne in June.

One of Australia’s original true crime podcasts, Australian True Crime launched in March 2017 after Laurie and Webb bonded over a fascination with true crime and a passion for speaking with ordinary people who’ve had life changing events happen.

Laurie is well-known for her radio and television work (The Project, Nova, ABC Radio in Melbourne), popular books on Buddhism and life (Buddhism for Breakups, Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy) and her advocacy work for refugees and people on the margins of society.

Webb is a former Leader Community Newspapers journalist, true crime author (Angels of Death, Murder in Suburbia and Suburban Nightmare) and true crime book blogger who met Laurie when she was interviewed for the popular Nitty Gritty Committee podcast.

The pair wanted to go beyond the headlines and explore the ripple effect of crime on individuals and society.

Australian True Crime has experienced a loyal following and downloads of close to 14 million and featured guests including the popular ex-Victoria Police homicide detectives Narelle Fraser, Charlie Bezzina, Ron Iddles as well as survivors of crime and those others affected including family and friends.

Laurie said she was proud of the work the duo was doing in the true crime podcasting space, especially that she and Webb were independent broadcasters giving a platform for people to share important stories of courage, survival and what happens when you become a victim of crime.

“Australian True Crime is what we do in our rare spare time—it’s our passion,” said Laurie.

“We are dedicated to creating the best content we can and helping people who may not have had the opportunity to share their stories.”

Webb added: “We both still sometimes cannot believe how privileged we are to speak to people for this podcast and that it really resonates with listeners all over Australia and worldwide.”
