Australian True Crime

Australian True Crime

Think nothing ever happens in your town? Australia's suburbs are home to some of the most mysterious and disturbing true crime cases in the world. Meshel Laurie is a true crime obsessive. Emily Webb is a true crime author. And together with expert interviews with writers, victims, investigators and perpetrators, they probe the underbelly of our towns and suburbs, and uncover the darkness at the heart of Australian life.

Highly recommend this to all true crime fans!!

As an avid listener of true crime podcasts I’m always excited when I discover something new to binge on. This podcast doesn’t just cover crime & criminals but also provides insight from detectives, prison staff, criminals, and those affected by crime. Meshel & Emily are intelligent & thought provoking interviewers who offer listeners a variety of interesting & useful perspectives that adds depth to each episode.

So engaging

Great show! At times confronting, as the subject matter would suggest! The interviewers do a great job asking the right questions that us lay people need to know. Respectful, informative, fascinating.

I have listened from the very first episode and cannot get enough! Meshel and Emily are absolutely fantastic, everything is done in such detail and passion & the guests are just as incredible. I am now a full paying patron and love the additional content. Thank you so much for making such an amazing & informative podcast for people who love true crime just as much ????

Keeps Getting Better

I am hooked, I happened upon this a couple of months ago and listened to one. From then on I have gone back to the beginning and started at the start, these podcasts are informative and interesting. The guests are intriguing and I look forward to listening to the next podcast. Great job everyone.

Good stuff

I can’t stop listening

One of the best Podcast’s I’ve listened to, I can’t turn it off!!

The interviewers are very considerate of those who suffer crimes. However, my problem with this show is that they actually consider charlatans and so-called pyschics to be a legitimate means to solve cases. This became apparent when I listened to the episode on the Frankston and Tyrnong murders. They actually considered psychic freaks to be a possible method in finding out who the murderer was. They lost all credibility in my eyes when I heard this. I mean, are you for real? Psychics are fraud and cause immense harm to the families of loved ones who have had someone murdered. No time should be given to them as a possible tool in murder cases and anyone who considers them to be even possibly viable, is quite simply uneducated.

Don’t bother

Move to the next podcast, the host is politically hard left and cannot help but inject those attitudes into the stories.

Meshel is an amazing interviewer

I love this podcast. True crime is always fascinating for me. But the respect that Meshel gives victims differentiates this from others.

by Embers77

Well done

A good podcast about crime that doesn’t just focus on the crimes themselves. Often delving into interviews with victims, perpetrators, family members, prison guards and the investigators among other. A great listen.

My favourite ladies :)

I was hesitant at first with podcasts, of course I wanted true crime to be my first experience and oh my I don’t know if it’s because they’re Australian like me but I just LOVE THEM SO MUCH. I feel like I know them! They just get it. They are great. Narelle is by far my favourite guest you have had and will always be excited to hear her stories. I can’t explain enough how awesome I think this podcast is :)

Very informative

I’m glad I came across this podcast a few months ago. I spend a lot of time reading true Australian crime books but this podcast showcases crime cases that are not in the spotlight or have been forgotten over time. The guess interviews are always informative and very interesting.

by Penstar78

Sunday, 16 December 2018
Fascinating and thoughtful

I love this podcast - I think the hosts are very sensitive and thoughtful, especially when talking about the darker side of these crimes and when speaking with victims. I also could listen to Narelle Fraser all day long ?? what a champ!

by Jjj179

Saturday, 15 December 2018
Excellent, balanced podcast

I was never really a fan of Meshel Laurie but this podcast has changed my mind. The balanced approach she takes to the subject matter is refreshing and thankfully she is able to see both sides of many stories and walk in the shoes of both the victims and the criminals. Often the presenters of podcasts dealing with darker subject matter feel a need to go over the top in virtue signalling and are afraid to see things through the eye of the criminal; Laurie doesn’t fall into this trap. She is able to display empathy and acknowledge shades of grey without excusing the behaviour. This is a podcast with interesting subject matter which is handled with a deft touch.

by dave in perth

Wonderful podcast

I really love this truly Australian podcast. The girls are marvellous and the way they tell the story is fantastic. I am always waiting for the next one.

by Cass 69

Friday, 14 December 2018
It's ok.

Sometimes the interviewer interrupts the guest with personal anecdotes and opinion. Other times the interviewer is more respectful and on one occasion (so far) whilst interviewing and elderly victim of a robbery in the workplace, the interviewer was really condescending notwithstanding the fact that the subject must have held fairly racist views about black people prior to the robbery. That begs the question about why the subject was provided the platform to express and reinforce unhelpful views in a public forum.

I really enjoy listening to this podcast series. You and your guests provide a unique insight in to some of Australia’s crimes through various perspectives. The ripple effect if very facinating and such a tragic consequence of crime. Keep up the great work ladies!

by plh1971


Meshel Laurie & Rachael Brown!!!! The BEST podcast ladies & voice’s EVER!!!! You ladies are truly inspirational!!! Love your work & thank you for your endless, selflessness & quality education!!!!!! Emily Webb, love you too girl! ????????????????

by TammylovesYOU

Disappointed lately

Loved this podcast and meschel et al doing a good job, but disappointed you've created an "exclusive" listening audience for money. Also, disappointed with your viewpoint that Australian criminals don't get deported after committing crime. Naive and miopic perspective and trivialised the very real fear for ordinary citizens of Melbourne from home invasions, car jackings and ethnic gangs roaming about public spaces. Melbourne crims don't do the above and move in their underground circles and activities. I have had 5 home invasions in the past year in one square kilometre, all by ethnic criminals. I teach conversation English to a Syrian migrant- she does not view her asylum and pending citizenship as a right, but a privilege that she and her family are eternally grateful. She resents other refugees abusing this privilege and feels they relinquish the haven we provide

Sound is terrible

Great content but the sound levels are terrible. I used to be able to listen through the headset in my motorcycle helmet but recently I have noticed that the volume is so low I can’t hear it any more. Don’t have this issue with any other podcast.

by Mcguyver63

One of the best True Crime podcasts

I have only just discovered the Australian True Crime Podcast. It is so good. I really enjoy the relaxed and informative delivery of each episode. What a fantastic idea to have people involved or affected by the crimes on the podcasts. I like that I know a lot of places mentioned having lived in Melbourne my whole life. Very insightful. Totally riveted with each episode. 10/10 ladies.

Fantastic show

I love listening to your podcasts . So informative. Thank you Mishel Emily and Bartholomew and also Narelle Frazer . Keep true crimes episodes coming .

by Neety g


Really great content but Meshels tone is very sarcastic, almost like she is telling a little kid a story. A very put on voice and the highs and lows of each sentence almost create a lullaby. Not natural at all making it painful to listen to to.

Elaine and the African gangs

Another great job of making it about yourself Meshel. Elaine should have kicked you out of her house for your selfish, condescending approach.

by Noth East

A really enjoyable podcast

This podcast is fantastic. A really great listen, and yes I am another one, more Narelle fraser please. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to her on the podcast and I really enjoy listening to meshal laurie too. I love that she is so open with everyone and willing to give people a chance. If you love true crime then you should listen to this one.

Great Podcasts - just a little too quiet.

Although I love this podcast, the audio levels of the past few episodes have been very low (hasn't been a problem before). It would be great if the volume could be leveled for them and therefore much louder - have tested it on a few devices and seems to be a consistent problem. Have absolutely loved this podcast so hope I can listen to it a little bit louder in the future lol.

Fascinating, Binge Listen Worthy!

Brilliant podcast series about Aussie, true crime. As the daughter of a retired copper, I’ve been fascinated with True crime since I was a kid & especially enjoy all episodes with Narelle Fraser. Really great work ladies, Thankyou for the well rounded look into all aspects of these cases.

by Carla9

Too Much From the Hosts

Although the girls do a decent job with empathising, I find them to say too much and sometimes over act. Narelle is the best part of these podcasts and has such interesting stories to tell but I must say there are only a few of the podcasts that interest me. Personal preference I guess. Too many discussions with people who don’t know stories first hand, but then a handful are brilliant.

by LouiseCorp

Stalker was fascinating!

Your latest episode with the wonderful lady detective was absolutely riveting. It’s really great to hear a first hand perspective from the actual detective is so eloquent and smart. Please have her back!!

So so chuffed that funds are going to Elaine for counselling. I have been through private income insurance system and Centrelink with mental health issues and it is very challenging to get any quality support.

Australia’s Best True Crime Podcast

As I’ve named the title Australia’s best. The ladies are fantastic and great to listen to and it is great to her they make comments on what we’re thinking! I love listening to this podcast and look forward to each new episode each week!!

by Gertles

Love this podcast but not the Elaine Ep

Love this podcast but the Elaine and the African gangs episode is complete drivel. It’s awful what happened to Elaine, truly. But her attitudes are not even thinly veiled racist rants and it shouldn’t be given a platform. Mishel remains her compassionate and impartial self, but for Elaine to say that now if she sees ANY black person she has a panic attack and collapses IS racist. Even if internalised. If the crime was perpetrated by a white person, would the sight of ANY white person cause her to panic and collapse? No. Her claims are statistically wrong, suddenly can’t be substantiated (the police chief told her; but when mishel asks where he works suddenly he’s retired....). Honestly can’t listen to any more of this ep

by spicy zest lord

Friday, 16 November 2018

The guests are fascinating (especially Narelle Fraser!) however they’re sadly let down by a host who seems to interrupt them constantly, and unfortunately I’ve unsubscribed after the horrendous chewing and sucking noises in the “African Gangs” episode. Clear audio of an old lady speaking with a mouthful of food literally made me feel like she was next to me at the dinner table and it was so cringeworthy ???? !

by Lindakatee

A Touch of Webb and Laurie

Rivetting: Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb take us on a wide-ranging journey through Australia’s true criminal history. From stories such as the murder of Allison Baden-Clay, to how PTSD can take an unsuspecting career cop by surprise, to Australia’s most horrendous crime family, to Mr Ordinary Goes to Jail, these truly engaging presenters give podcast and true crime addicts a bingeworthy hit of the sorts of things that go on down under. Laurie has an absolutely engaging honest, wide-eyed, open fascination to her conversational style and Webb brings the long-standing creds of a crime reporter and true-crime author. These two stamp this fantastic podcast with honesty, balance and compassion, and a true love of their subject matter. Unlike a lot of the true crime on offer—some of which is great, too—I reckon that Emily and Meshel take us beyond voyeurism to get listeners thinking about the bigger picture ... and themselves as people. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the format; you might think that these are easygoing chats, but the podcast has depth and a cracking pace to it. It’s a great listen that points listeners to other podcasts, video series and stacks of great true crime reading. Beware; this is like crack for aficionados of the genre. Laurie says that she likes giving the work of many authors 5 stars; some of the interviewees talk about giving things 110%, so I give Australian True Crime 5-and-a-half stars.

by Gardfen

Tuesday, 13 November 2018

I have been giving this a listen and I can’t help but say in some episodes, particularly in the podcast about Greg, that living a part of your life as a criminal is glorified to a degree. I think you have to be careful as a younger teen and early twenties audience listening to this may look towards a life in prison as something to aspire to. It’s nice to hear all people treated with respect but celebrating ones life in prison is an overstep. I’ve personally seen this happen to friends and family and I think you may underestimate how having this attitude can lead to negative behavior instead of positive.

by J_A_I_

What a breath of fresh air!

How refreshing to hear you both do this podcast! I love crime books and over the years read a few but also ventured off into fiction just for something new. I enjoy how you both ask questions we listeners might be thinking. You do a great job conveying the story and how many topics I’ve heard you cover is amazing. Definitely 5 stars for me :)

by LongswampJo

Disappointing sound quality

I was looking forward to the follow up on Mr Ordinary but the sound quality was terrible. Sounds like he was interviewed on a mobile phone that had poor reception. I tried to listen a few times then gave up, which is a pity because he has a good story to tell. This just seems like very lazy production - it does not take much to get a clear landline connection and put some effort into sound quality

My son is currently in a Victorian prison, after he has broken parole in Queensland New South Wales we are in regular Skype contact he is sounding like he is ready for change in his life.Thanks meshes thanks Greg I still live in hope

Huffing n puffing

Subject matter in most episodes is interesting. Here’s some constructive advice - the constant interruption of guests whilst in mid sentence by both hosts - more by Meshel - is rude and annoying. I want to hear what guests have to say not the hosts’ stories or asides. Hey everyone from early episodes to the most recent Meshel has worked as a receptionist in a brothel... which manages to get slotted into most episodes! ???? I’ll go on Wikipedia if I need to know thanks. Meshel curb your oooohs, aaahs and wows please. That is all.

by WiseSally08

by IanGorton

Decent podcast

Some really good episodes with good information. Would be appreciated if they give at least a 5 second overview of mention a few details of the case they talk about when they mention it as oppose to just the name of the perpetrator/victim. There is a habit of name dropping a case with the guest then talking about it like every listener is on the same page of the conversation with everyone in the room. Would really help when trying to follow along.

I just want to thank you for podcasting this story. I am shocked at the sentencing of this crime against a child, Twice?! The jurisdiction around rape cases in this country is just sad.

Good program

Took me a while to get used to the conversational format, being used to programs such as Casefile True Crime, another good program. ATC has a lot of really interesting guests and respectfully presents a lot of insights.

by Nicky je


Like any podcast some really good and some we’ll that’s just it , can’t all be perfect Doctor Kelly Richards presentation on Paedophiles was an interesting stance It’s difficult to see how a smart young woman could even suggest that a convicted pedo could ever be allowed back into the open community Rem Doc a child that has been raped or molested ( call a spade a spade) cannot be un molested Keep up the good work

Love your work!

This is my favourite podcast! A great variety of content and you guys are so compassionate. Keep up the good work.

by A.M.C.8.8

Amazing and eye opening!

I’m a regular listener and every Thursday I look forward to listening to the latest episode. I want to say thank you for all your hard work in creating such an important and respectful podcast. For me this podcast has taught me so much! I have compassion and admiration for the victims and their families that share their stories and I have a new found respect for the police department and the work they do every day that we don’t see. Also I love Narelle Fraser - what an incredible woman!!! I find myself crying, laughing and gasping on the bus because I become so invested that I forget I’m in public. Thank you to your team and for making by far my favourite podcast!

Excellent crime series

I really enjoy this series except for the intrusive interviewer who keeps interjecting with her own experiences.

Love this show

Have always been a massive fan of Meshel, love the work that she and Emily do. I love true crime and their interviews are in depth and respectful. Keep up the great work and thank you for all you do.

I was sexually assaulted at 7 years old

I listen every week & really enjoy this podcast but this week’s one with Elisha, I felt was one of your best so far. Firstly what a brave women to tell her story. So glad she got the outcome she did. She mentioned mental health issues but from the tone of the interview & her attitude towards what happened she seems to be winning the battle. I hope she can inspire other women to tell their story and fight for their own justices in similar situations. 2nd to both you Meshel & Emily. Such honest compassion was shown with a both respect & humor in balance.

Well done

This podcast is well done, and written from a view point that I find interesting... I just wish that they wouldn't feature Narelle (sp?) so much. She tells a good story, but is not the most intelligent woman.

More Meshel!!

Love this podcast but don’t love the episodes without Meshel. Don’t have the same feeling and way way less enjoyable. Other than that great stuff

by Hannahshawwww

Interesting and informative!

Great podcast, love the girls work, great enthusiasm and a real understanding of Australian true crime. I love the fact this isn’t just the Ivan Milats and the snotowns etc etc, they are great too, but I find the lesser known ones to be the most interesting. I really like to listen to the detectives involved and learn about the procedures and methods they use and must abide by. Great jobs girls keep them coming. Also thanks to all the detectives and writers and other guests involved. Love the Narelle Fraser and Charlie Bezzina cases.

Now Disappointed Listener

I used to absolutely love this podcast, but disappointingly, it is no longer anywhere near as good as it was. Meshel Laurie hasn’t hosted for the past three or four episodes and although Emily and Bart are lovely people, that don’t engage you like Meschel does and it’s no longer easy listening. I’ve moved on to other true crime podcast unfortunately.

Saturday, 4 August 2018
I appreciate your acknowledgement..

I appreciate acknowledging those who are in the right and giving them the voice and their 15 minutes well deserved. The victims don’t always get their justice and I thank you for the support you’ve shown them. Zayden Veal Whitting and family, story was very hard to listen to. You’ve given them a great deal of dignity, instead of blame. I’m a fan of the show and to you as well.

The current episode “When a parent goes to jail” amazing

This episode is amazing. One of the best episodes and Emily shows just how outstanding her interviewing and journalist skills are. Her ability to craft an enlightening and captivating podcast episode while being so gentle and caring.

I’ve just recently started getting interested in True Crime, I love your podcast and love listening to you on my commute to work (I’m in the car on a work day for 2 hours and 20 minutes). I’ve just ran out of older episode and I have to wait for your weekly show now. Keep up the great work and cannot wait to hear more in the future.

by Joey.0077

Bring back Meshel

I have been a very active listener of this podcast and have enjoyed the variable content, however my feedback is that I really struggle to listen to Podcasts just with Emily. I feel that the conversations do not flow and the questioning is often awkward or not concise. Meshel has a beautiful way of handling the content in a free flowing more natural way and hope that future podcasts contain content with her in them.

The art of the interview

My first subscription to a true crime podcast

This podcast was my first and I never looked back. Now I've subscribed to over 40 true crime podcasts but Australian True Crime is still my fave and I listen to each episode the day they are released. Love the interview format. Many guests have a story to tell being either an author, a victim, a survivor, ex-police force... Narelle Fraser is a staple guest and I just love her. Meshel and Emily are always so respectful and understanding. Love them. I look forward to every new episode and so will you.

by Skysie2104


I really enjoy the way you come at this podcast and how you discuss all the issues and events from all different angles. I’ve listened to many of the same topics of crime on Casefile and between the two you make the cases so much more when you hear everyone’s prospective. You have an amazing empathy and kindness to all not blaming just understanding. You’re doing an amazing podcast Meshel... love your work, recommend it all the time..

Wish this came out everyday and Narelle is awesome.

by porz-c


This is a smart, well produced podcast with great content and excellent series regulars. I have learned better safety precautions from listening, and also the power of an observant public! What is compelling is the stories of survivors how they turned their lives around, and sadly how some could not.

Compelling and Riveting

Thankyou For your wonderful podcast. I especially love hearing Narelle Fraser and her account of her time on the job. But all of your podcasts give a human and real element to some stories that we only heard of fleetingly via media. Very important to hear from the families and how they are coping with the hand dealt to them. You do an amazing job I hope you continue.

Great podcast

Thanks for putting together interesting podcasts, I enjoy hearing about these local Melbourne cases that I grew up hearing about and wondering about. There is one case that has intrigued me in recent years, it’s the case of David Dick who was killed by his brother at Doncaster Westfield. They have never found the brother? Do you think you could do a podcast on this case?

by 1mish1


Not a glorified murder/crime podcast. It’s about victims, families, friends and the others who work for our rights - the police and others. The resilience of survivors (all of the above) is extraordinary. This podcast is about people.

Some people wrote incorrect info. I've been so well informed and even a bit entertained, yet mostly I am grateful for this podcast. Gutsy, true stories in Australian crime. Make me so thankful we have dedicated resources to policing. This one, and True Crime Island are Aussie classics

by Lawrence of Australia

social Impacts

hey ladies when you talk about the major impacts of society today will you ever mention feminism? the most dramatic impact on men and boys for 50 years or is it too easy to ignore that elephant. All school shooters in the US have come from single mothers. Females of all ages are very hostile and fear driven around males of all ages. Reason. Fem obsessed media. Left wing group think. In addition you mock people that believe in fact alternatives as conspiracy theorists and have your little joke. So I guess you believe the 911 story as per CNN. As the fake CGI and a fire that lasted too many hours for aircraft fuel and buildings that should not have collapsed. If you want to talk about crime you need to wise up and accept it happens at government level also. You sound a bit to naive to be mocking smart people who question the MSN story.

Frankston murders 25 years on

Perfectly timed podcast. Living through this terrible crime in the 90’s made all young females terrified to walk alone (much like it still does I guess). Not living in frankston but close enough (30 minutes away) at 15 I was not allowed to walk down the road by myself, not only from my parents but all of my siblings, the fear that this man put on the community was horrific. I am so offended by the fact that he now identifies as a woman, I think he gave up any right to that 25 years ago.......I done think we should ‘respect’ his choice now, he is and always will be a male in my mind

The best Australian Crime podcast

Great podcast. I’m hanging for Thursday’s so I can listen to new episode on my drive home every week. Narelle Fraser could have her own podcast where she just repeated the word ‘bus’ over and over and I would still tune in, what an incredible human she is! Would like to hear a episode about poor young Masa Vukotic who was murdered in 2015. Thanks guys. Keep it up!

Love Meschel and Emily!

These two girls really do their homework in preparing this podcast and have a lot of knowledge surrounding Australian crime and it shows. Meschel is so fantastic and I’ve literally fallen in love with hearing her voice. She has the perfect mixture of humour and sympathy and is such a genuine open minded person. Truly an inspiration.

by RachelFox4


One thing which would make me give 5 stars instead of 3 is if Meshell not interrupt or talk over her guests or Co-host Emma. Meshell is overbearing TBH. Also I hardly hear what Emma has to say and maybe a better balance of input from the hosts would be considered... please? One more thing is stop the gasps ooooh and aaaahs and I’m talking to you Meshell. Zip it!!

by WiseSally08

Best Ever!

Without a doubt this is my favorite podcast. Thursday doesn’t come quick enough! Easy to listen to, informative guests, Meshel and Emily interview with compassion, grace and understanding while getting to the gritty bits of the stories. One episode a week is not enough!!

Addictive content

The interviews are so thorough and cover everything I'm already asking in my head! The guests are so interesting and invested in sharing their experiences. My heart is heavy from some of the content because I get so invested in each story. I'm so sorry these crimes have happened to these families and friends but this program is exceptionally good at sharing your stories with dignity.

More of guests, less of hosts

Narelle Fraser is an angel and we are blessed for her contribution, dedication and approach as a police officer and human being. BUT the hosts....gah! Terrible. Why can't they just stick to the facts and story instead of talking about feminism, asking leading questions, running an agenda, talking about themselves, or turning every situation into social commentary? Hosts completely ruin the content. To Hosts: two words "parachute theory". To guests: Thank you for your contributions.

by Parachute theory

Best podcast ever

Please tell me that one of you lovely ladies are going to ghost write a book for Narelle Fraser. I am buying! Love the podcast. Thanks so much for all your work. Thanks also to Narelle Fraser for sharing her stories. I also especially enjoyed your interview with the serial killer whisperer.

Great stories with top notch interviewers

Like most people I love Narelle Fraser, the best ever interviewee. On a whole Myshelle and Emily ask the right questions at the right times allowing the stories to develop. Really interesting stories that are based on modern Australian crimes, interviewing journalists, police and victims families. All with compassion and the right kind of interest.

The authors of this podcast are amazing, so professional and informative and I love how they interview people and get stories straight from the source. It's so great to be able to hear from people involved or somehow related to the cases and topics they've discussed. The hosts also have really pleasant voices to listen to, which is a must for podcasts. I appreciate the professionalism and how they stay on topic as they discuss these serious issues. Love hearing from Narelle Fraser - she's an incredible brave woman and really brings to light the hidden side of policing.

Standout podcast 5/5

Standout Podcast for true crime, conversational interviews with depth, and details & background for contemporary and historical criminal cases. Meshel Laurie is a wonderful host and interviewer. She develops an excellent rapport with compassion and insight for her guests, and crafts questions that elicit stories untold and explanations for positions previously understood. In particular, guest Narelle Fraser is a stellar conversationalist. More episodes featuring her, please!

by Ggvee

Narelle Fraser Cases

I could listen to Narelle Fraser recounting her police cases for hours. She can describe situations so well that I can actually see the story. Thank u Meshel for this Podcast and I hope to hear Narelle again soon.

You are both so considerate and polite and it’s evident in the rapport you seem to build so easily with your interviewees. The episodes with Narelle Fraser are my favourite, I have such an admiration for her! Always waiting patiently for new episodes from you girls, love your work!

Australian true crime

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened too. So respectful of victims and their families. Great job girls.

My favourite true crime podcast. Emily and Meshel you rock!


I love Mishel

Mishel is one of the most sensitive, finely attuned and emotionally intelligent human beings on the air waves. I’m new to true crime, but I am hooked on this podcast - I just love it!

by Benlux1

Great true crime podcast

Meshel and Emily are great presenters who ensure the victims aren't overlooked and forgotten. You do a great job with research and writing too. I simply LOVE hearing from Narelle Fraser - I wrote to her after hearing her PTSD story. Her first hand accounts are truly gripping and insightful.

Fascinating and unique

Carefully researched, articulate, informative and so interesting. Very respectful of the families and the deceased. I like that real experts involved and the people involved are given equal voice.

by 7Cubby5

Love this podcast!

I just listened to the latest episode about Lorraine carter. The rapport between Mishel and Narelle is like listening to two old friends. Brilliant episode, thank you

Don’t stop producing these

Love this podcast. So well researched and presented! Especially like the fact it’s Australian content. Meshel’s genuine curiosity really drives the storyline as well. Love guest speakers such as Narelle Finch. Thank you!

by Lauren O'Farrell

My daily drive to work sorted ????????

I love love love this podcast. So easy to listen to, with mystery, intrigue, murder, and more. Cases are always presented in an engaging way, with awesome guest speakers. My absolute FAVOURITE is Narelle Fraser. Give us more of Narelle!!!

by Mrs~G

I love Narelle Fraser episodes !

She is authentic and really enjoy her narratives. A real insight

Love all your podcasts ladies. And just adore Narelle Fraser. What a brilliant woman. Thank you for all the informative, interesting and moving stories you bring in such a caring way. :)

by Mischks


Great podcast

by Lazyfrogonalog


As an avid true crime fan I absolutely love this podcast! I always find myself fully engrossed in the stories, conversations and journeys that Meshel and Emily go on throughout these episodes. They bring an element of warmth and humanity to some dark topics and tragic stories. Kudos ladies. Keep up the great work!

by Cassmas

Exquisite Journalism

I truly love this podcast and the way Meshel & Emily conduct themselves during these interviews. The interviewee is gently coaxed into telling their story and treated with great respect, empathy and compassion. There isn't anything else really like this in the way of true crime podcasts, definitely appreciate the passion with which these episodes are presented. Please keep them coming! Especially love the Narelle Fraser stories - so good you guys should do a spinoff podcast just talking with her about old cases!!

by Callisto009

Aussie crime related with empathy rather than a desire to simply entertain, shock or vilify.

Great program. Meshell is a thoughtful, honest and inquisitive host. I invariably find myself anticipating her collaborations with retired police officer Narelle Fraser. Having worked a multitude of cases she takes listeners behind police tape sharing her subsequent traumas. Hosts and guests relate Aussie crime with empathy rather than a desire to simply entertain, shock or vilify.

by hollylanagan

Every episode

Narelle Fraser- an amazing woman. Love her episodes. Brilliant interview style. Every episode intrigued me. Keep them coming.

by Bee2bee2beez

A M A Z I N G!

I’m obsessed. I’ve been reading true crime for years but these conversations teach me something new every time. And Meshel you are smart and funny as fu*k!

by ClaudieLaudie

Wednesday, 16 May 2018

Why do the presenters have to personalise each case to their own circumstances? Who cares. Just present the facts via your guest.

by Freddie Nirk

My favourite True Crime podcast

I look forward to every Thursday for ATC’s new episode - my favourites are with Narelle Fraser. I’ve been a huge fan of true crime since I was a little girl, and I love hearing the conversations between Emily, Meshel and their guests, that sound like they could be my girlfriends sitting around discussing these cases (in Australian accents) with such interest and empathy and concern for those affected. As a multiples mother myself I am constantly impressed by Meshel’s ability to create such consistently fantastic content here and on other mediums. Thank you so much to the ATC team (Bartholemew too!) -you’ve got a devoted fan in me!

by TwinMamaManly

Could listen all day

Narelle Fraser is a magnificent storyteller. I love listening to you all. I’m totally enthralled

by MJZM0303


Great podcast. Love listening to Norelle!!

by Kelkim

Love this podcast!

I love the angle you guys take on your true crime stories... really interesting. And Narelle Fraser is a legend- keep her coming!!

by TaraMacca

Great podcast but some episodes need trigger warnings

Some of the episodes discuss suicide in detail and without warning (Serial Killer Whisperer episode) or sexual assault or assaults involving children which can be difficult to hear if they’re unexpected.

by Anjou

Tuesday, 15 May 2018
Uniquely perfect story telling of true crime!

Greatest true crime podcast in my opinion! Meshel’s interviewing is second to none and her empathy and understanding with everyone on this show is so comforting. Heard Emily first on Dan Supansky’s podcast and she was incredible on that! Girls, there’s a story of a serial killer in the 90’s in a tiny nsw town called Bowraville, I think it’s right up your alley. I wish I could give this podcast more stars!



I really like this. The presenters actually listen and are not always interrupting and cutting across the guest speaker. They are very respectful of the story..

a bit off

usually i think this podcast is great but the Amanda Howard one left me feeling really unsettled.

by oihdsujhabn

Ladies you’ve done a wonderful job discussing the worst of humanity and balancing it with respect for the victims, families and those who bring perpetrators to justice. I’ve loved every episode so far, especially anything with the brave and amazing Narelle Fraser. Bravo ????

Australian True Crime

I am so incredibly impressed with this podcast. The sensitivity and compassion with which the hosts treat victims and perpetrators is just awe inspiring. So calm and measured and with such intense focus. They really search out the deep complexities of a situation. The hosts and guests are absolutely incomparable and they treat every case so carefully treating all participants with compassion and kindness and a wonderful willingness to carefully peel away the complex layers of each situation. I have no words for how impressed I am and how deeply appreciative I am of the hosts and producer and guests. I am so grateful for them all. Thank you so much. You RULE!

by Neefzilla

Great Australian Podcast

Thanks Ladies, well presented and researched and interesting guest interviews.

by CLTKouw

An Alright Podcast

This podcast is fine and really focuses more on interviews than research. You can tell the hosts are genuine and sincere, but it’s just not my favorite. It’s one of the first I’ve found that covers non-American crimes, which are always interesting and appreciated.

by NatureSoundsforSleep

Great podcast!

When my alarm goes off for my early morning exercise and it’s cold and still dark the main thing that gets me up and moving is knowing I have more episodes to listen to!! Well done, love listening ????

by A_Reynolds


Meshel, you ask all the right questions in all the right ways. I relate to you on a personal ‘weird’ level because I’m just as fascinated as you with criminals and their psyche. I wish there were more stars to show my appreciation of you!

I’ve listened to every single episode and it will continue to be the only crime podcast I listen too! Both of your opinions and questions are exactly what need to be said and asked and your both extremely fair to both the victim, the families and the perpetrator. I love that even ex-detectives give their stories of what happened and especially LOVE Narelle Fraser!!!!! Thank you so much Emily and Meshel for taking the time to help get these incredible events back out there!

Andrea Kane & Chris Lane episode

This was one of the most emotional episodes yet. Driving to work listening to it and crying my eyes out. What a great family and so positive in such horrible circumstances. This is what this podcast is all about; the people behind the crime and how it affects them. Keep doing what you’re doing, it’s great.

Awesome Listening Pleasure

I love listening to this podcast! I live in the United States, but I've always kept up with true crime in other places, and Australia is a favorite. I find the way Michel and Emily conduct their interviews to be so kind and full of humanity and funny when appropriate. I'm a vociferous reader, but I also listen to audiobooks many hours of the day (and night). I wish more of the writers would have audiobook versions, so maybe you would recommend that!! ????

Great true crime podcast with a twist.

There are many great true crime podcasts, but this one has a difference. They really go “behind the headline” and interview the police, survivors, family of victims and others connected to crimes. It is such a fascinating and interesting approach. Always respectful. Highly recommended!

by emmap47

Representatively Binge Worthy!

This Podcast was everything I was looking for in a True Crime podcast. From the delivery, the respectfulness of the victims/survivors and their families to the interviews and the creepy yet airy intro music/sound. I completely binged listened to this podcast and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in True Crime!

Meshel - please shut up!!!

Meshel Lawrie likes to impose herself time and time again. She seems to think she must always sneak in the bit about how she worked in reception at a brothel. Regular listemers know this Meshel - we're sick of hearing it. In the recent interview with the meth addict/lwyer/writer - it was all about Meshel and even he was taken aback at times. Meshel - just shut up

Highly recommended

I cannot get my headphones in fast enough each time a new episode is uploaded. This podcast is informative and brings to the fore the human side of policing and the impact of crime on relatives, friends and the wider community. I love Meshel and Emily’s interview styles and their choices of subject matter and their ability to be sincerely sensitive and tactfully ask the questions that I would love to ask, given the opportunity to be in the room. 5 stars and a high-5 from me. Well done!

Everyday is a beautiful day when a new Australian True Crime episode notification appears on my phone. There’s never been a dull case, and I’m yet to skip a minute of any episode. Look forward to new releases from the moment i’ve finished listening to the previous one. Amazing team, amazing cases, amazing interviews. When Narelle Fraser is on you just know it’s going to be such a goodie. There’s something important about knowing about what happens to victims, and what happened to the people they left behind. 19 years old and fascinated by everything you have ever covered. Thanks for producing such fantastic comment.

A crime podcast with a focus on humanity, rather than scandal,

I love the way the ladies gently and curiously question, query and prompt their guests to get a deeper, more insightful story. There is much more humanity than scandal in this podcast and it is so much better for it.

by Louise2babies

Thursday, 5 April 2018
Good On Ya!

In depth and heartfelt presentation of the who, what, when, where and (trying to figure out) why of the well-chosen cases. Always interesting and conversational, like you’re sitting down with some savvy acquaintances from down under. When you’re not in the mood for a lot of unnecessary gore, profanity and sarcasm tune in and you won’t be disappointed.

by Marsman61

Thumbs up ????????????????????????????????????????

Congratulations Meshel and Emily on presenting such a wonderful and vast collection of Australian True Crimes. I especially love the podcasts featuring Narelle Fraser, Ron Iddles and Charlie Bezzina. I crave every new release as I have listened to the entire collection so far ??????????????

by Kundeez

Amazing & So intriguing

I’m always excited for every Thursday morning to travel to work so I can listen to the newly added podcast! These stories are so interesting, and I enjoy listening to all the different sides of these stories and listening to all the views and thoughts of people involved, I especially enjoy listening to Narelle; she is so well spoken and as Australians we should be thankful we had her as a law enforcer and protector for our community! Amazing work

Completely engrossing

A dear friend recommended this podcast to me and I'm completely hooked. Meshel's and Emily's podcast is thoughtful and deft talking about some of the most hideous crimes committed, they're not ghoulish or cruel at all with dealing with relatives or victims. One of the best podcasts I listen to.

by Katagal

Women’s view of crime

I love this podcast fullstop. But the most recent episode about Annette Mason and the way Mischel interviewed her older sister just made me feel so grateful. Grateful that the victims/survivors of these horrific Crimes are strong enough to share their stories. I loved that Mischel states it’s not about voyeurism or interest in murder for her, it’s about the story of those overcoming/surviving/withstanding unfathomable circumstances that draws her and Emily to true crime - as it does with many women. Keep it up girls! Such dignified and respectful interviewing xx

by Ez_benj

Engaging, Enthralling and Exceptional! Narelle is such a beautiful soul xx

My friend mentioned this podcast to me a few months ago.. I had a long drive coming up and thought I’d download some ep’s. I absolutely LOVE them. Listening to these episodes kept me wide awake and alert whilst driving! I was so intrigued. I must say that I absolutely love Narelle. She is so engaging and speaks so well. She makes you just fall in love with her as soon as you hear the way she speaks about the victims. She is just such a beautiful soul. Charlie Bezzina is also very engaging. Their episodes are by far the most interesting and detailed. More with these guys please! Xx

I have loved every one of these. So clearly spoken and so so interesting

by Stormboys

So genuine and kind.

Every time I listen, something stands out to me about your humanity. Just, you have guests that have spoken about how grief doesn’t just stop and go away. That when you lose someone you love dearly, they don’t disappear. I love how you state that things can get really awkward when people ask just normal questions or someone turns on a song and you just cry bc it mates you think of your child that died. I’m so honored by you ladies, by your humanity... it’s incredible:) that’s all. Five stars from me, most definitely!???? Lydia

Love it

It is great to get the full story and understand the long term effects for the people involved. It’s great this is for Australian true crime. I recall many headlines at the time, but you don’t get all the facts anywhere else.

by Rewio

Quality, gripping Australian storytelling

Mishel’s podcasts are my favourite way to wind down. Her storytelling is so compassionate and caring. Whenever I see a podcast with Narelle, I go straight to it. She’s amazing! Thanks Mishel and Emily, I really love everything you do and am so enormously grateful that you share your gift with us. I wouldn’t change a thing, thank you.

I am absolutely loving this podcast.

I can’t rate it highly enough. The way they interview Detectives, crime experts, victims, victims’ families and perpetrators paints such a vivid picture of humans at their best and their worst. In particular, I feel that the way they always make sure to tell the victim’s story really brings home the gravity of the subject matter, so that the aim is very clearly to educate the community rather than to provide them with tawdry entertainment. It also encourages us to consider new aspects of the criminal justice system and question how politicians could do better for the community by investing in rehabilitation services.

Totally addictive

Going on long drives just to hear these stories

by J.Netty

Best Crime Poscast

Awesome episodes with a great insight in True Crime in Australia. Excellent interviews giving a great understanding on each case and how criminals think and act

by Bluey96


A completely unique insight into Australian crime - not only are Meshel and Emily sensitive interviewers, they are able to ask the questions we all want to know. The guests are all completely fascinating, and intriguing to listen to. I just love what these two ladies are able to educate us on in true Australian crime!!!

Best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. The differing viewpoints and sources of information, whether it be from a detective, victim, journalist etc, keep the podcasts forever fresh and intriguing. Thanks for not editing out a lot of the more gruesome details. They help to give listeners an idea of the things that investigators have to deal with in order to keep the community safe. Keep up the amazing work!

Absolutely fantastic and addictive

I love all the pod casts. Each person interviewed has come across with such integrity and openness to discuss at times the most horrific things that have happened to them or loved ones. Well done Mishel and team.

Some stories bring you right up short

by Lawrence of Australia

you make talking about crime relatable.

Excellent and respectful!

Great format and approach to providing further insight into some of the worst stories to come out of Australia. Excellent interviewees and storytellers. And credit to you both for always being respectful to those who are affected by these crimes.

by Scrabblewang


Disappointed that the stalker episode featured so much unbalanced information on the Morgan Ingram case. Strong indication that the mother had munchausen and there was absolutely no mention of this, just enough information to have everyone petrified of people stalking within their neighbourhood.

by MinnieC16H


The authors of this podcast are amazing, so professional and informative and I love how they interview people and get stories straight from the source. It's so great to be able to hear from people involved or somehow related to the cases and topics they've discussed. The hosts also have really pleasant voices to listen to, which is a must for podcasts. I appreciate the professionalism and how they stay on topic as they discuss these serious issues.

Rehashed garbage

Don’t waste your time with this one , old stories badly told , VERY DULL INDEED.

by steve mad

One of my favourite podcasts

This is one of my favourite podcasts. I love the stories they have, especially when they speak to detectives. Each topic/story is really interesting and it’s one of the few podcasts that I listen to where I refuse to miss an episode. Thanks for putting in so much hard work

by Kittybiscuit70

Thursday, 15 February 2018
Fave but questionable last episode

I love this podcast and get excited every time there is a new episode however the most recent episode “stalkers” puts forward some highly questionable facts surrounding Morgan Ingram’s suicide. Her death was ruled a suicide, and her mum is certifiably crazy, she created a blog and named a neighbour as the murderer stalker and rapist, when there was no proof at all. What happened to Morgan is awful however how her mother Toni responded w such evil endorsing harm to these innocent ppl and their families is almost as bad. For any listeners interested in this case I’d send you to the Sword and Scale podcast. Much more factual and presents more than one side to the story.

by Hannahshawwww

Always interesting listening

I alway love listening to these episodes - factual and great interview techniques ...

by ballooky

Pretty good

Narelle Fraser needs her own podcast! Her experiences are unbelievable

by marinoadam

Wednesday, 14 February 2018
Stalker Ep

Love the podcast especially when Narelle is on. However the stalking episode about Morgan Ingram, in the research I've done I don't believe there was a stalker. There's talk about the mother being overbearing etc etc and all the cameras didn't catch anyone. It's actually a really interesting story and if you guys wanted to feature it that would be great. Because sadly it appears the young women killed herself. In my opinion. Really interesting story

by Podcast12341

Great podcast

I love that you listen and empathise with everyone from interviewee to victim/survivor and even perpetrator and ask such astute and appropriate questions. Such great, respectful interviewing.

I really love this podcast. Done with empathy without being patronising. A must listen for any True Crime fan in Australia.

Something different

There are a lot of true crime podcasts out there with the same format - just a host or hosts going through a case. Australian True Crime is a breath of fresh air. They interview detectives, experts, they get these people to tell their own stories and to talk about the psychology and work behind the scenes.

by adarkstone

Binge time!

I've just discovered this podcast and enjoyed it so much I've listened to three in a row instead of sleeping!

Tuesday, 23 January 2018

This is THE most fascinating podcast. Who would have thunked I’d be so into Aussie True Crime? I found this podcast through Meshel’s other podcast “The Nitty Gritty Committee” (another brilliant podcast you should check out). This podcast has so many interesting interviewees and you learn so much all while being enthralled. Never miss an episode of either podcasts. Do yaselves a fayvar!

by Supdupa

Great show but too long between episodes

Love the show but a month and a half between episodes is just too long to keep me interested. Shame because it is a great show otherwise which discusses aussie stories with interesting guests.

Amazingly done

This podcast is amazing, Meschel Laurie and Emily Webb do a fantastic job of researching and interviewing the people involved in these crimes. I love the interesting sides presenting of realisation and brutal long term impact these crimes have on family members of murders and the victims. It's done respectfully and put together well. Keep them coming.

Emotive and compassionate

Emily and Meshel are not just two crime nerds talking about crime. They try to relate to victims and perpetrators, they empathize with interviewees all in a bid to understand why these crimes happen. I've already binge-listened most of the episodes and I only started listening a month ago.

by Growlergirl12


Love this, could you please do a podcast on the society murders in Melbourne - Matthew Wales

by Happyuser1234321

Awesome style.

I’m not usually interested in the true crime genre but Meshel’s interview style ensures the podcast is interesting to listen to, asking questions and probing stories in her own unique style.

by K.ezza

Saturday, 13 January 2018
Great podcast

Having not been a fan of Meschels humour (sorry but its true), i was very hesitant to listen to this podcast but the topics drew me in. I was more than happy when i was proven wrong, finding that the podcast was excellent. Its well worth the download!

Fascinating, informative

I was looking for a new podcast to subscribe to to fill my holidays, and picked this one only because I love Meshel Laurie - I'm not normally into true crime. But have found these podcasts to be fascinating, interesting, informative and 'entertaining'. Well worth a listen...

Sunday, 17 December 2017

Love this podcast, very juicy topics & it’s presented so well. I totally relate to both Meshel & Emily, & they seem to read my mind & ask everything I want to know. Also have a big soft spot for Narelle her stories are all shocking & heart wrenching.


Australian True Crime?

This seems a bit centric on Melbourne and Victoria, hardly cause to be called Australian True Crime. If I'm wrong please point this out.

5 Star show

I can’t get enough of these episodes!! I have been absolutely enthralled by these stories. Great podcasts!!

by Rubychuse

Professional podcast dealing with a tough topic

What I admire (as a former criminal lawyer) is the respect this podcast gives to everyone affected by these awful crimes. Particularly appreciate the use of actual witnesses, police investigators. No sensationalism, no personal judgements, just high quality reporting.

by Mandypants19

Thursday, 14 December 2017

The delivery, facts, and story telling makes your podcast a joy to listen to. Just found you and I’m so glad that I did. I appreciate all the work that goes into the research which results in excellent questions to your guest. Keep up the great work!!

Women’s view of crime

I love that finally there is a women’s view of true Australian crime. Strong female narrator/interviewers. Storage female Police detectives and journalists. Thankyou Emily and Mischel!!

by Ez_benj

Wednesday, 13 December 2017
Just okay

I listen to this when I am waiting for a new Casefile. It’s okay, the topics are good, but the interviewers are not particularly in depth (they saw “wow” a lot, which doesn’t really help explore the issues) and in general the analysis is pretty light. However it’s not bad if you need something for your morning run.

Episode -Women in Prisons - bad editing

I have just listened to the same section at least 3 times - editing errors - suggest producers listen thoroughly before airing

by Youme&3

Slurping hosts

All I can here is the hosts guzzling their coffee the whole way through the episodes. Very distracting and not appropriate when guests are recounting sometimes horrific events.

by Loelky

Thursday, 7 December 2017
Excellent Podcast!

I love this podcast for many reasons, but mostly Meshel. Her interview style is so natural, genuine and raw. The stories told often leave me crying, but incredibly grateful for the wonderful work law enforcement are doing in my home town.

Michelle & Emily. I just can’t get enough if your enthralling & mostly horrifying interviews & stories.

I wish you every success. You deserve it. Cheers Corey

Meshel and her team have done a great job pulling together crime stories. The interview style of Meshel which is pretty laid back is very easy to listen to and clearly makes her guests at ease. Thank you. Now off to South America to listen to the rest of the podcasts on Nitty Gritty Committee.

Getting me by...

I came across these podcasts (True Crime and Nitty Gritty) recently and I have just binged them over the last few weeks. I listen to them on the tram to and from work, when exercising, when at home. I love True Crime. I love the personal questions, the details, the stories. Emily and Meshel do such a good job and I want more, like almost too many. Like if I went into and was like “wow there’s so many”, like that many. Love it guys Congrats and well done

Sunday, 5 November 2017

Absolutely love this podcast. I’ve listened to a few crime podcasts and this is by far the best. Hearing the perspective of the police that have investigated the crimes, relatives of victims of crime, criminals and even survivors of crimes gives this podcast the edge that others are lacking. Love Meshell Laurie’s down to earth attitude and I will be looking at getting some of Emily Webb’s books in the near future. Will be checking out Meshell’s other podcast The Nitty Gritty Committee soon. Well done ladies this is a top quality podcast.

by Kaz B 79

Surprisingly good

I'm not a big fan of much of the hosts other work but she certainly knows how to get the best out of her guests- which I do admire. A big focus on Victorian stories- from journalists, former prison inmates, homicide detectives, writers, social workers and so many more people telling their stories- which highlights the incredibly personal stories around crimes and criminals.

I had this podcast in my group of crime podcasts but hadn't listened to it. At one point I had listened to all the others and thought I'd try this one. Wow it is so great and I couldn't believe that I haven't really heard anyone talk about it. Looking at all the episodes Waiting for me was like approaching a feast. Each one is excellent so please listen to one and see for yourself.

A refreshing approach to true crime podcasts

Really love this podcast ladies. The deep dive interview style approach is a refreshing change from most other true crime podcasts. You give us a real insight into a case and perhaps more powerfully the human side of the impact of crime. Keep up the great work!

by BeckOb

Thursday, 26 October 2017
Poor editing!

How can the editing be so poor? Sections of audio are repeated on more than one occasion and there are awkward pauses between segments which aren't necessary on an editable podcast. I hope they improve this as I enjoy the content to date. It would be good to be a little more informed on the cases they invite people to cover as it comes across like they're guessing or vaguely recalling incidents / rumours they want to confirm.

Eye opener

Thank you everyone for the parts they each play in producing this podcast. Right from the hosts to tech people and the experts interviewed. I have become addicted to learning about true crime for years but the part that always intrigued me was the psychology of the people who commit the crimes. But the amazing thing about your podcast is that you delve into the psychology of the people who catch these people and the people left behind. You have even help me realise that I myself am suffering a form of survivors guilt after finding out my son was molested by a family friend. So thanks to you I am now getting the help I and my family needed. So just know you don’t just share these peoples stories you can play part in helping listeners perhaps heal their own hurts. Thank you. Xx

Addictive Listening

There’s a empathy that Emily and Meshel have towards their interviewees that makes the stories even more compelling. I’ve thought so much about PTSD and the wide range of people affected since listening to these podcasts, which is a subject I’d rarely given much thought. The women’s egos aren’t that which mean they’re interrupting or constantly sharing stories from their own lives- something that infuriates me with a lot of radio interviews where it becomes more about the presenter than the far more interesting guest. They ask thoughtful and unusual questions as well as the ‘Oh I was wondering that too’ ones. I do find true crime fascinating, where I listen to podcasts from around the world and this would be one of the best podcasts I’ve subscribed to. Well done, ladies.

by aumezzy175


Fantastic Podcasts. I've listened to 3 today whilst on holidays. Insightful, intriguing and chilling at times. Brilliant work Meshel & Emily. A huge shoutout to Narelle Fraser, what a fascinating woman.

by Mml12352

true chills

These podcasts are like junk food. One is really good but 2 get a bit much & I find myself disagreeing with the line of questioning or the angle. I just listened to the killing fields, the best part about that was the insightful interview with the ex-prisoner. Meshel did show understanding & empathy while discussing the points about the featured author she disagreed with. I got irritated by 'woman kills for cigarettes' pod but that was more to do with the mentally ill woman nor being able to fit into society's stereotype. It has stayed with me & I listened to it a few weeks ago. The first one I listened to was about the lady who was burnt & that was very good. The Frankston serial killer was scary & it made me realise that cops really are on the victims side & what they have to listen to with a straight face. Maybe listening to 2 in a row is harrowing, I find it uncomfortable & blame the presenters. Not like junk food, but still to be taken in small doses. I think it's the best of the crime podcast around, but I haven't listened to Trace yet. ( I have listened to most of the other famous ones)

Thoughtful not sensational

Both Meshel and Emily discuss matters with sensitivity and thoughtfulness. Not sensationalising the subject matter. They treat the interviewee with respect and compassion. Excellent podcast

Well done Australian based crime based podcast I really enjoyed this podcast

One of the greatest podcasts out there. It's a pity you ladies have extra work on your plate.. wouldn't mind an episode a day ???? keep doing YOU ladies ????

by Ellice89

We want more

A well done podcast very infinitive and not over dramatic, it’s great to hear from police and psychologists that were actually there. I first listened to the Alphonse episode, I loved it that much I went back to the beginning of the podcast and have downloaded all episodes. There are not enough Australian true crime audiobooks available so this is a good substitute. Thanks Girls ????

Am binge listening to this podcast, loving the amazing people being interviewed. Narrelle Fraser, Ron Iddles and Charlie Bezzina are amazing human beings, so humble but brilliant throughout their careers. Thoroughly enjoying the interviews Meshel & Emily, keep it coming.

by KJackel

Great show

Have just discovered the podcast and am really enjoying it - although I'm not sure how to feel about having now learned about murders which took place just around the corner from my house! I have one small bit of feedback: it would be great if the hosts could turn off their microphones during interviews (except for when you're asking questions, obviously). One or both hosts makes a lot of "active listening" noises while the interviewee is talking, which is probably great for the interviewees but can be pretty distracting when trying to listen to the interview. The show as a whole is fascinating, though, great work!

Exceptional Podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. It terrifies and intrigues me at the same time. It's not overly dramatic but honest and to the point. I can't wait for each Thursday when the new episode drops. I just wish there were more. Great to listen to.

by Esecomb

Annoying Commentary

The subject matter is of course interesting and captivating but all the "ohs" and "oh my God" comments and the opinions of interviewers is distracting and just presented straight without that rubbish.

by Yackandandahkid

Varied content that keeps the listener engaged

Thank you for this excellent podcast. I have thoroughly enjoyed the range of content.

Definately not a group listen, but this is thoughtful, powerful and honest interviews - much higher standard than many 'true crime' programs

by TraDragon


Absolutely first class. This is how it's done.

by JFC*14

Best kind of addiction

Exploration into the darker side of Australian Society is far, far brighter when guided by Emily & Meshel. Thank you for your infectious curiosity. I've cried, I've laughed but mainly I've, always, been enthralled.

If you have an interest in true crime this is the podcast for you!

Sound quality is terrible

The content is fine but the mismatched volume of Meshel and her guests ruins the entire podcast

Fantastic podcast I look forward to it every week.

Sunday, 10 September 2017
Lost me for good

I'm a fan of Meshel Laurie but the interview with Dana Vulin was awful. A true crime podcast that ignores the "crime" context of how/why she got burned? I thought Meshel might have the guts to try to get to the truth, but instead it was a simpering puff piece. Canceling my subscription now.

by Sup Dorks?

Perfect for a true crime addict

Cannot stop listening such a great podcast and so very interesting to hear from the actual police and investigators themselves

by CourtyM

Friday, 8 September 2017
Those who really know tell the story.

Thanks Mishel, for allowing people the time to tell their story. Too many other interviewers constantly interrupt and have a preset agenda. This is interesting without being sensational.

by Rosie1504

Important perspective

I am loving how you're acknowledging so many different sides of the story and going past the 'click bait' stories. Really engaging!

Podcast journalism at its finest!

Well researched, interesting and thoughtfully and sensitively produced.

by Xhanna91


These topics are treated with such respect by Meshel and Emily, so even though the subject is hard they make the listening easier. Perfect fit for a fellow crime-buff! Well done and keep up the great work, and that goes for all the hard working police and detectives too.

by Terry CC


So good to hear tales of aussies past and present and get an idea of how the victims suffer.

by walkinshaw

10 out of 10

Great podcast about true Aussie crime! Meshel asks the hard questions with both empathy & compassion. Very informative and interesting information about Aussie crime history. Love it! Keep them coming!

by kels479

Interesting but too many "wow"s

As a criminologist I like this podcast. It talks a lot about social context of crime and features many relevant people including law enforcement, victims, former prisoners. I think the podcast could be much better if the hosts tone down their reactions to guests' stories. It is very distracting. Four stars.

by San08

Wednesday, 6 September 2017

I love the compassion and kindness shown by Meshel and Emilly, along with their interviewees. It is important to give the person who lost their life an identity, to know who they really were, and I am grateful to get a chance to do this listening to this podcast. Thank you Meshel and Emily.

by Barbie two

Thrilling and Haunting

This podcast is so overwhelming and well done, so informative and so terrifying. I fell in love with the style when they interviewed Narelle it was so raw and so real, a perfect addition to this genre of Podcast.

by jpjpjpjpjp

Best True Crime Podcast

This is the best true crime podcast which has been made in quite a while! I have over 15 true crime podcasts on my phone which I have tried. This is definitely the most binge-worthy and, whats more, it is Australian! I love the Meshel and Emily combo, their interview style and how their ability to take these extraordinary experiences and explain them to ordinary people like myself. Meshel's down to earth style is refreshing in what can be such as serious genre. Emily - I first came across your work on Dan Zupansky's True Murder. Great to see your work continue, and great to have an interesting, well thought-out and high production podcast to listen to. 10/10 - please keep the episodes coming!

5 star!!

Great Australian true crime podcast..

by Kincky123357974

Not a fan

Comes across as a bit cheaply done and often seems to just piggyback off the work of others (authors, reporters etc.) the whole thing feels a bit amatuerish and chatty. Very little new material presented that is not freely available. The interview style feels more like it is more focussed on the interviewers emotional reaction to each case than getting the facts across. This will appeal to many but fell flat with me.

by Rupasta


Interesting and informative, love that accent! Everything one can ask for in a true crime podcast. Definitely one of my favorites. If you just want the story and no mindless banter, this is the one for you.

There's only 1 problem with this

The only problem with this Podcast is waiting between listening to one and the next to drop. Great listen every time with Meshel, Emily and their AMAZING guests!!

by Love lumber

Great topics, terrible interviewers/hosts

I love the topics and used to love each of the hosts, but since merging podcasts/books and trying to fork it into a cohesive podcast all it has turned out to be is a mediocre version of both. Chopped together and full of repeats, the only thing worse than the hosts stumbling over questions you'd assumed were rehearsed is the fact you could come up with 3 more interesting questions before the interviewee has answered. While stating the podcast isn't about titillation, it continues to use surface level and explotitative interviews to skip the informative and prioritise the provocative. A great cringe listen while researching how to make an interview style podcast.

So smart, so articulate

I love true crime books, stories but these days, mostly I love true crime podcasts thanks to Meshel and Emily. The way they talk to victims and families delivers the often intimate details of their stories with the ease.

by Srwei1

Engaging and down to earth

Love Love Love this podcast. Emily & Meshal are down to earth and tell each storey with compassion and respect. Extremley engaging and the topics are well researched - great job guys!!!!!!

by chansta

Exquisite Journalism

I truly love this podcast and the way Meshel & Emily conduct themselves during these interviews. The interviewee is gentle coaxed into telling their story and treated with great respect, empathy and compassion. There isn't anything else really like this in the way of true crime podcasts, definitely appreciate the passion with which these episodes are presented. Please keep them coming!

by Callisto009

Sensitive and insightful

Meshel Laurie is a sensitive, insightful and respectful interviewer. The podcast does not sensationalise or dramatise, it is just honest story telling done in a supportive and almost healing way. I cannot rate it highly enough. Congrats to all involved.

by TeenIdol2

You Rock!

Love love love!!! You guys rock for real. I love the inspirational women you interview, the lady who experienced severe burns...I have to get her book, "Worth Fighting For". Aren't we all really!! So inspiring, so much gratitude for you. If you haven't heard this podcast, you must!

Excellent podcast!

Great hosts and guests. One of my favorite true crime podcast.

by Joy in San Diego

Great content - host need some work

Amazing guests come on with fascinating stories, which is why I love the content. Downside is that Meshel constantly interrupts or talks over them with her own tidbits and 5cents on the story. I just wanted to hear Ron Iddels and Narelle Fraser tell their stories without constant interruptions from Meshel. I totally understand hosts need to interact, but it's a bit clunky and cringy to listen to sometimes.

by AT!eve

Quality discussions

I have listened to about eight of these now, but by far the best has been the discussion of sexual assault on Australian university campuses. Nina Funnell is strong, poised, intelligent, concise & dedicated. A truly admirable woman. What a fascinating, educating discussion. I was especially interested in her opinion on how we should speak to our children about this topic and respect for self & others. The other stories are interesting but this is important. Excellent, thank you ????

by El-vera

favourite true crime podcast

I listen to quite a few true crime podcasts; I recently discovered this one and it has quickly become my favourite one! I appreciate the respect you show the victims, their families and the survivors of the crimes you cover. I also enjoy hearing the stories from the detectives that work the cases, it is comforting to hear how hard they work and how it affects them- this is the only TC podcast I listen to that gets their perspective. Great job, I hope this podcast continues!

Don't miss it!

I listen to sooo many true crime podcasts and didn't plan on adding more. However, Meshel and Emily's podcast is one I am so glad I found! I love the different professionals they bring on to discuss different topics. Be sure to add it to your True Crime List!

by Jennifer from Lima

Well worth binge listening to!

While each episode is less than an hour, you can tell there is a lot of information and work that goes into making each episode so distinctive. Meshel does a great job in getting down to the complex details in a very understandable way. Would definitely recommend !!!

by Loonyleper

Great structure & fantastic interviews

Brilliant podcast with in depth interviews of people you'd never normally get to hear from. The PTSD episode is such a real eye opener in so many ways and truly brings to light the reality of what our Police men & women really have to deal with during and long after they've clocked off for the day.

You forgot Tassie

Can't have a map of Australia without Tasmania

by Crezzy

The crime is your logo

Never heard of this podcast, never listened to it and have no intention to, but you seem to be missing a part of Australia on your map. Ever heard of Tasmania? Apparently not. Maybe do an episode on your 'True Crime' show about how it went missing from your map and the crime that it is that you have done so.

by john_John_81

Monday, 21 August 2017
Mixed quality

These episodes are generally pretty good, although sometimes the host interrupts the flow of the guest to say something about herself that is only loosely related to topic ("I worked at a brothel", "I have anxiety" etc). Most recent episode has an editing issue (BBC report played twice). Note: I would have given 4 stars but since the host specifically requests people to only give her 5 star reviews I will give 1 star. Update 21/8 - the quality is getting worse. Long sections of audio are now being repeated over and over again. A real shame that something potentially good has been spoilt. Very amateur

by V207681

Raw and honest

I've only just started listening to podcasts and having read Meshels books I knew I would love the podcasts. This series is so true and real. I no longer listen to mindless breakfast radio on my commute to work. The topics are fascinating and leave you wanting more

Editing needs work......

Last few episodes have been edited horribly. From long periods of silence, to repeating interviews or features, it's really frustrating as the content is great, but I hate hearing the same section repeating.

by timmy6321

Highly recommend

I'm an insomniac so I'm quite fussy with my nighttime podcast listening ~ I hate repetitive ads, annoying laughter, distracting music so this pod ticks all my easy listening criteria, plus Meshel is an awesome & genuine interviewer. I don't subscribe or review often but this is a cracker!

Meshel Laurie really knows the right questions to ask. She's even better at keeping judgement out of it to give the interviewee a fair go and the listener the opportunity to have their own opinion!

by Alibat

A must listen!!!

Great range of true crime topics from those of recent memory to crimes in the past, criminals and police officers, all handled with the utmost care and sensitivity. Addictive and well worth a listen.

Riveting story telling with so much insight and respect to all concerned

by kerzie M


Michele takes a very empathetic approach to covering crime and looks at all angles - interviewing victims, retired detectives, journalists/authors and affected family members with her refreshingly open and honest style. No judgement, no opinions, just letting the story come through. I love the podcast and hope it continues.

by SnigglePop

Tuesday, 8 August 2017
So very good!

I was surprised and pleased at how good these are, 45 minute snippets of stories from our headlines - often from a first person witness perspective, sensitively and compassionately presented.

Thank you Meshel for all your amazing podcasts you have brought to us over the years, and this series doesn't disappoint. It is fascinating, addictive to listen too, and just so disturbing all at the same time. Keep up the great work, and you have a true gift with the empathy and rapport you share with your interviewees.

by Flydog75

I listen to every episode.

I love listening to Meshel Laurie talking to people are issues we are all curious about, and the cases we remember.

by Bonnieknowsbest


Great subjects thoughtfully covered. The wonderful hosts go beyond the why it happened to how it affected the families and the community and really shows how a crime or event shapes others lives. This will enrich your life with great information you can share with others.

Great podcast - Love it!

Emily and Meshel do a fabulous job. The episode about the special ops is especially fascinating, I could not get enough of it!

Fantastic Stories

A great collection of some of Australia's most famous crimes! I have enjoyed every episode! Some of the intimate details and facts that are eye opening! Definitely worth a listen!!!

by MissPetaT


I've really enjoyed listening to and highly recommend this podcast. One thing which would make me give 5 stars is if Meshell not interrupt or talk over her guests as much. Meshell is exuberant in her love for what she is doing and kudos for that. Also I hardly hear what Emma has to say and maybe a better balance of input from the hosts would be considered... please?

by WiseSally08

Love it

Just love Mishel L's interactions and questioning of the guests.. So refreshing!

by Kj0370

Love it!

My only criticism is that there isn't enough of these podcasts!!

I Could Listen For Hours

I could listen for hours! I love this podcast, and what makes it more enjoyable is the passion evident in Meshel and Emily's interest and knowledge. I just wish they were longer episode, or we had more episodes with detectives and police officers to hear more more more!

by emmaleeallan

The Best!

Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou to you two amazing women for your Podcasts...I've never actually had a podcast until I heard about yours and have listened to a couple others since but sadly they fail in comparison to The Podcasts you ladies produce and the quality and integrity of the guests who speak are awesome! I am a 41yo single Mum studying Criminology and Forensic Psychology and just ?? Meshel.

by K Lodding-Finn

Well Done & Compelling Listening

I love this show you both do a fantastic job of reserch and story telling. May I suggest a topic the Balaclava Killer in Brisbane & Gold Coast in the late 70's and early 80's I have very vague memories but he was never caught. I thought you may have a good insight on this case.

by 1audaciousv

Yeah nah

Do your research. If you are the presenter you should know your facts about the case. Often you are second guessing and trying to sound like you are informed. You clearly are not. The good crime podcasts have presenters that are totally prepared and informed. Lift your game.

Brilliant! Thrilling! & truly intriguing.

Beautifully narrated, this pod cast goes deeper and more personal than any other. Always interesting stories told with quest speakers that were actually a part of the original crime, wether that be police detectives, relatives, or others close to the case. This pod cast is a true treasure to be found!!!!

by Lislucy

Great work

This pod has me hooked great listening gets me through the long nights at the wheel

by Tullyhang


Absolutely love this podcast. The stories are interesting and varied, Meshel and Emma are considerate and great at guiding the story. Well done to everyone involved!

by Jennnn15

Great true crime podcast that covers many perspectives

I am always looking for a new podcast that really gets my attention. Australian true crime is interesting and thought provoking. It challenges your perceptions of victims and offenders that is so often dictated by the media. The best part is that it's all Australian and truly leaves a mark.

Great Listening


by Livvylou5003

Great, very interesting

A very good and interesting podcasts.

by Susie5291

Love this podcast - Can't wait for more

I love this podcast. I have learnt so much from the different episodes and at the end it leaves me wanting more. I can't wait until the next podcast is released. I often listen to these when driving home in peak hour traffic and stay in the garage when I get home because the episode hasn't finished yet. Meshel has such a great way of getting people to tell their story but also have a little laugh as well. Keep up the great work.

by Kizixoxo

Worth a listen

Always very interesting stories. Very informative.

Heartbreaking stories from true heroes

These stories are so touching and inspiring. Some of the things these police officers, families, friends, etc go through are unimaginable. But then I listen & I think these are just normal people & it could happen to any of us. Amazing, sad, heartwarming, heartbreaking, inspiring.

Great podcast

Really interesting interviews that are sensitive and engaging. Well done

by Shellyde17

Great listening .....

Well researched but very compassionate when talking to family members or police officers involved in the case. Look forward to each new episode.

by Virgo3186

Road trip entertainment

Thank you for the interesting and captivating series I listen to you podcasts on a road trip to Sydney and devoured most of the episodes on a long drive to Sydney (but not with the children in the car????) helped make a long drive entertaining If you listen to only one episode listen to Narelle Fraser's story on PTSD what an amazing woman the interview was respectful and compassionate.

by KC road trips

If you're looking for a new Serial season one

Meshel and Emily are genuinely invested and humble, respectful but honest interviewers. They've chosen intriguing cases and take you along for the ride with their conversational but insightful storytelling. This is great!! Thank you!

Australian true crime

Meshel and Emily you have given me joy, I know some thinks it's morbid to find crime fascinating but you like what you like. And they way you both present this program is beautiful, you're empathetic and really let the listen feel what is being said. Thank you ladies I've enjoyed and listen to every episode. Full appreciate the great work

by cathvn

Truly riveting

This podcast is at times chilling

by neekyisdabest

My Favourite Podcast

I love this podcast. Sorry that's not right. I LOVE this podcast. My absolute favourite. Meshel and Emily are just amazing people and the light they shine on Australian true crime stories is interesting and sometimes devastating but the empathetic way they listen and talk to their guests makes this podcast so easy and enjoyable to listen to.

I'm really enjoying all of these podcasts. They are in plain speak, easy to understand. Delivered in a caring and thoughtful way. I love Meshel and her "normal" approach to life.

by BigKaz4

In my Top 3

I hang out for this podcast each and every week!

by natt.a.lia

A great true crime podcast that's authentic and Australian. Emily and Michel are fantastic interviewers who really let their subjects' lights shine through.

by Leahjoheinrich


I love this series. This episode was great and quite moving in parts. I'd recommend this to everyone.

by Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkilll

Love it

I really enjoy Meshel and Emily's podcast and the various people they have on to tell their stories.. it's so much more interesting hearing from those affected than other podcasts who just read a story out.. this podcast is definitely the favorite part of my drive home from work! Keep up the good work guys!

A refreshing look at true crime

A refreshing look at true crime giving a deeper look into the crime by listening to those that have been affected by or involved in some way. I look forward to the day a new episode drops into my directory. Well worth subscribing

by Gypsiegrrl


Love this podcast. Never stop!

by Weilhsa

Great listening - very addictive!

Love this series! So unique as each episode comes from a different perspective - it isn't only about the crime but each episode comes from a different angle to give us a view into how the crime effects different people associated with it ie: the children of the victim or police officers with PTSD or how a detective looks at a case and how the judicial system works (or doesn't) can't wait for more. Ps: this is really easy to listen and absorb - (quite a few of the other podcasts out there you need to rewind often, as they so hard to keep up with) Well done girls!!

Addictive & Insightful

Best podcast around. Done with respect to victims, their families and those who work tirelessly to investigate.

by KatieLoses

Re: Aussie cops

I have listened to all of your podcasts whilst spending time away from Australia, my home. Listening to important Australian stories told with care has helped maintain a sense of connection with the way things are done back home. The touching stories with Narelle help give somewhat of an insight into the heavy burden that police lift for the betterment of society every day, and are important to get into the public discussion. Keep up the good work.

by smachon


Both presenters are great

by kia018

Third side of the coin

Great Podcast - would love more regular updates

So far so good, recommend for Aussie true crime buffs.

by Vonne092

Love it !

I love this podcast. I love the stories, and the "behind the scenes" info Michelle and Emily subject us too. I equally love their naive questioning and responses (and I use that term as a compliment... they question and react as I think the general population would). It feels like you are sitting in a living room listening to some of the most fascinating, jaw-dropping, eye-opening Australia stories.

by Naomii44

Brilliant & Insightful

Thoughtful interviews and such honesty from the people. Well done xx

by Micki Butcher

Compassionate interviews and interesting subjects

A different take on True Crime podcasts, which often take a storytelling approach; from the 4 I've listened to so far this podcast appears to be more an inside out series of intimate interviews of individual true crime experiences.

by Rubyroo68


This podcast is presented with accuracy, empathy and sensitivity. Sometimes challenging in subject matter, but always incredibly informative. One of my true crime faves!

Interesting empathetic conversations

Thank you for bringing such interesting stories with down to earth empathetic conversation. This isn't True Crime purely for entertainment it's a conversation about the deeper issues faced by survivors, victims and even the perpetrators. Interesting podcast and I just love Meshell and Emily as hosts. Thank you!

by Loops31linda

Thursday, 20 July 2017

I have been listening to the episodes as they drop and am finding them really interesting, compasionate and provide a perspective different to the headlines. I didn't realise how hooked I was until there was a gap in the episodes and I was craving a new episode! Now we have 3 in a week and am trying to space them out and not gobble them up too quickly. Thankyou Meshel, Emily and guests.

by DKW hutch

Engaging and Intriguing!

I listen in the car, and don't want to get out at my destination when listening to this amazing podcast. Thank you for such an amazing series ladies!

by cocat5427


Love these podcasts which delve into the dark reality of crime. Especially enjoyed the podcast about PTSD. The police officer really shed light about policing and trauma. It was honest and humble. I'm grateful for her service and other police after listening. Every episode is fascinating and shocking.

Makes Stories Have a Human Element Often Missing In Media

All of these stories are hard, difficult, sad and complicated to hear BUT with this amazing element of humanity. Even if it is the truly ugly side of humanity. It honours victims and makes them real people not "stories". It is a truly interesting podcast which sheds a light on the violence humans are capable of but also the absolute strength & courage victims and service people have. 100% would recommend.

The hosts need to research better, some of the questions and statements from them sound 'dumb'. The subject matter is awesome but this format just doesn't delve deep enough, it's boring.

by truecrimenut

Tuesday, 27 June 2017
Great podcast, bad music

This podcast is different to other true crime podcasts and takes a more human approach. Great to hear from victims and how the impacts of a crime have long lasting effects. Would have given 5 stars but the background music is annoying and detracting from the essence of the show. Please change the music and come up with something more appropriate as a theme tune.

by Marienotantionette

Monday, 26 June 2017
Super fascinating

I've listened to a few episodes now and found most to be really interesting. But none more than My Sister The Killer & They Shoot Mentally Ill People. As a mother of a daughter I cannot even imagine what this family went through and continue to go through. It has opened my eyes wide to what families of mentally ill people go through every day even without the terrible and shocking part of this story. We as a community in addition to the government need to support these people and their families. Sure as hell you shouldn't be sent home after admitting you are suicidal and homicidal. And it shouldn't have to be jail where you can get the appropriate treatment and boundaries required. I hope the right people in the right places hear this story. The murder of that poor man was totally preventable.

by jessicamichelle09


About the episode, My Sister, the Murderer. OH MY GOD I wanted to slap those women for giving in to that spoiled brat, manipulative psychopathic kid even at a young age. She should have been put in a home as a child instead of over indulged --- this episode, as honest as they were about it all, makes me realize there are some real messed up parents in the world. Instead of feeling compassion for them, for some reason I am infuriated and I am not sure why. Parents: If your kid is shunned by ohters in their class, not invited to parties, GET HELP!

Great podcast

I've only listened to 4 episodes so far, but I'm already loving the podcast. The content and interviews are great. You can tell that the hosts really care about what their guests are saying and show so much respect. The only negative about this podcast (which is not worth removing any stars for) is that sometimes the sound balance gets a little off so it can be hard to hear at times. Keep up the great work!

I'm absolutely hooked on your podcast! Thank you for shining the light on the stories that aren't typically told. Many of these stories demonstrate the real impact mental health is having on our society and the desperate need for greater support for individuals and families in crisis. The respect shown to your storytellers is heartfelt and the winning ingredient of your show. Thank you!

These podcasts are like nothing I've listened to before. Weird to say but they are easy to listen to, yet compelling and at times... heart wrenching. I look forward to Thursdays. I wasn't even into true crime but I am now, and it's all Australian. Keep up the great work ladies!

"33 reasons why I have PTSD" is a must listen. Not many people want to tell the story from the cops point of view. Great podcast.

by Missparkles88

Thursday, 18 May 2017
Audio needs work

Great subject matter but some episodes are almost unlistenable due to wild variations in volume. The Killing Fields episode for instance; Meshels voice was so much louder than her guests. Long silent pauses in some eps mean I often think there's a problem. Tech side needs tweaking.

Newly converted true crime fan !!

Was never a true crime fan until I stumbled across this podcast. I landed here because I'm a huge Meshel Laurie fan - and I haven't been disappointed. The narration and story telling of these events that have largely all been part of the news cycle of my life has just been fascinating !! Keep it up !!

by lcg77

Loving the Honesty of the Interviews

If you love True Crime then this podcast is for you! Meshel is a fabulous interviewer displaying empathy and respect for both the subject and the interviewee. Meshel asks the questions that we want to know the answer to and gets away with some 'improper' questions because her natural curiosity doesn't come across as standard hard core journalism. I was a Detective for over 14 years and am most impressed with the lack of judgement displayed by both Meshel and Emily. Well done Mamamia for taking a chance on this podcast!!!!!

by Gracies mum

Don't like what could have been a good podcast. The idea of looking into Australian crimes was good but the structure is terrible and you finish up knowing little more than before you started. Not a fan of the host either.

by .A.M.

Love it!

Love the stories chosen, love that they are Australian based. Mishel asks great questions which we all want to know. Bit different to other true crime podcasts I listen to, which are more detailed in the crime committed. But the format is much more caring and sympathetic to the victim. Thanks Ladies!

Look, it's not terrible, but it's just not good. While the stories they are covering are interesting, the lady hosting it is average at best. True Crime Stories is way better.

As a 'fan' of true crime stories it's great to have this Australian content about cases we remember from the media, some shocking and heart wrenching. Your podcast a making my hour long train commute a pleasure. Thank You!

by Eak72

Insightful! Real eye opener.

Touching on various angles of crime and speaking to those directly involved adds a credibility often lacking from similar podcasts. Thanks guys, keep up the awesome work!!!

Thrilling and fascinating

Oh you hear all the names of these dastardly criminals and their victims from the news but can't piece it together. Just fascinating, eerie and addictive. Love Meshel Laurie, love how she enquires and let's others tell their stories.

I love these!

by MissMarpley

Good content but audio needs work

Love the content, really interesting stuff, especially because stories that did hit the media, and many of us remember it happening at the time now get to hear the follow up! One criticism, whoever is in charge of the audio needs to do some work. Male voices are almost unable to be heard, so you're constantly up and down on the volume button. Especially in a car!!!!!! It's VERY irritating. I would have given 5 stars if this wasn't an issue, but so far of all the podcasts I've listened to (which is all!) it continues to be an issue.

Compelling listen. Love Mishell's concise, articulate commentary. The girls are compassionate yet investigative. Can't wait for more!

Yay Aus media

Good listening!

by Julia for Australia

Such a great chilling podcast

This is absolutely amazing. Fabulous, deep and chilling podcast. I've just binge listened to 4 episodes. I've cried. Been in shock. Been mortified. But the professionalism, tone, sensitivity and questions by Meshel & Emily make this podcast a must listen. Thanks

by Chickitita

Can't get enough!!!

I love this podcast and wish there was more than one episode a week. Also want to hear more about the gangs in Melbs

Excellent Topics

Seriously loved the previous podcast as it was an issue close to home (Leeton, 20 minutes from Griffith) you guys nailed it, love for you to one day maybe do a Melbourne underworld or Sydney gangland podcast!!

by Danibal92


I'm not generally a crime fan, but am fascinated by these stories & I believe it's the way they are presented, with empathy & care. I want more!!

by Pscott4

Skip it

If you want good Aussie true crime, try casefile and felon. Not this.

Great listening

I've listened to all the interviews and thoroughly enjoyed all of them, so down to earth (raw) real people talking about real life events! And as for the 2 interviewees well say no more your both engaging and you keep me on the edge of my seat!! Well not I listen to these on my long drive to work! Thank you :)

by Laughter Lines :)

Production quality is embarrassing

For a programme from "the world's largest women's podcast network" one would expect better sound quality and production value than these podcasts. I listened to episode 3, "On Father's Day", it sounded like it had been recorded in a large kitchen, plus the occassional breath muffle (not sure if there's a techincal term of that.

A refreshing take on the evils of society

Fabulously presented podcast of Australian crime. These girls present every story in a personal and engaging way, with particular focus on the forgotten and numerous victims that are left to suffer the aftermath.

by Shazzerjam

Saturday, 15 April 2017
Well I like it!!!

I love this podcast BUT the only criticism would be is that they don't churn them out quick enough because I listen to one every night. What about researching the 'Anita Cobby' crime. That was dreadful and I think one of the biggest and most disturbing in Australian history. Keep up the good work girls.

by White_at_Home

My new go to podcast

This is the best true Australian crime podcast I have found.

Victims tell their tales

This podcast largely lets the victim tell their story guided by Meshel and Emily.

by Lark78

Highly recommend

This is a great podcast. Thoroughly enjoyed each episode so far.

by heythere

Love your work Meshel

I was a little skeptical of Mamamia jumping on the true crime bandwagon, but love Meshel Laurie so thought I'd give it a go. I've listened to 2 eps and they were great - especially the Sallie-Anne episode. Nice to hear Aussie crime and Meshel brings her excellent interviewing skills with her.

Local stories & real people connected to the cases

Great to hear local stories, some know and others unknown. Interviews with family, investigators and other people that were there at the time. This is not just old news stories being rehashed.

I binge-listened to all current episodes today. Insightful and respectful open discussions with some fascinating guest speakers. Love it, ladies! Can't wait for more.

True Crime Down Under

Fantastic and thought provoking. True crime done sensitively with respect for the victims of crime. Love the ladies that present too, the kind of girls you'd happily have a cocktail with and chat true crime all night. And the fact that they're feminists, all the better. Long may it continue.

Please stop. So many others out there already are doing this better and less ickily but Mamamia's gotta capitalise on everything, so

Love it

Love Meshel Laurie so much. Her interview style is second to none. Loving this podcast so far

by Denplaysdrums


I really enjoyed the first three episodes and am interested to see what follows. ????

by A woman in Paris

Insights into darkness and light

I really enjoyed the first three eps. I binged and found them different but with similar themes around violence, power and how victims families are left behind to process. Really enjoyed them - in a sad and distressed way. Well done.

by Milkomel


Satisfying my inane curiosity into True Crime with favourite people/authors/journalists!

Engaging and interesting. Can't wait for the next Ep!

by K374727

Not bad!

Not a bad podcast. Great to have a podcast on Australian crime. Not a fan off the ending line... way to close to My Favorite Murder's sign off... need something original.

by NaeG3


Meshel and Emily are fantastic together! Loved them together on Meshel's NGC podcast and glad they've teamed up together to do this! Can't wait to listen to more!

Absolutely loved it. They asked questions from a completely different perspective and gave us new insights.

Sign off

The sign off is enough to kill it for me. Way too close to MFM, close enough to seem like this podcast is trying to copy an existing podcast with a large following.

by Fangirlxmillion


Downloaded and listened to all 3 as soon as they were available! Great listening. You ladies were so compassionate and unbiased in your interviewing. I cannot wait for the next installments, don't make us wait too long please.

by JoSandys

Very insightful

This pod cast had me looking for more the Father's Day episode gave us so much insight into the aftermath of the crime and what it can do to the victims .please keep up your delving questions.I can't wait for more

So interesting and real

Listened to first three back to back. So interesting to hear the back stories and also what has happened since. Well done Meshel and Emily.

Great new angle on true crime podcasts

As a true crime enthusiast, the thing I like about this format is that the cases are real, local, relatable and help to explain how our justice system works in real and often horrifying reality. Keep up the good work.

Loving it!

Being a bit of a true crime buff myself, this podcast is right up my alley. Michelle really has a knack of telling these often horrifying and emotion heavy stories in a sensitive and engaging manner. Looking forward to many more episodes.

by OzSupreme


Janine's story was horrifying. Would not have heard of this story if not for this podcast. Victims clearly need more support. Meshel, you didn't get a clear answer why she thought the case was botched. The second interview would have been better if it hadn't had been on the phone. After such a harrowing story it didn't seem right to sign off with 'don't kill anyone'

by Succulent cutting

Not good

Don't waste your time. Two feminists talking crime. No thanks

by Notbadself

Best Podcast so far for 2017

Meshel excels best with this type of interview. She brings out all the raw, human feelings especially in the interview about RF. This is a must to listen to if you appreciate the finer details of crimes.

by Bronwyn (in Australia)

Enjoyable talkback

Interesting and engaging. Can't wait for a few more episodes, thanks guys!

by Nattynoodle82

Australian true crime

Absolutely so entertaining and interesting. Well researched and presented. Highly recommended

by Shnoj

Great job :)

I do get a lot out of listening to true crime podcasts but I always do so with caution, because I find they can be too emotionally draining. I listened to these episodes and was pleasantly surprised by the content - it's not overtly sensationalist, plus each episode spends time trying to explain the context and culture around the crime. Which I really enjoy. Great job Meshel and Emily :)

by SunshineBrightly

Great to hear about cases closer to home in a unique podcasting style. Can't wait for more! Meshel's true crime passion shining through!

by Dubetu

Great Australian True Crime

Meshel, you and Emma started me on my true crime podcast binge after your Nitty Gritty Committee interview last year, where you made some recommendations that I followed and loved. I've listened to some other Australian true crime podcasts and they consist of one person reading a script. Boring! I love the way you interact with your guests and one another. I binged on the first three episodes and can't wait for the next one to drop.

by Redpopppy58

Good stuff

Very impressed

by Snoots mands


The Farquharson ep left a bad taste in my mouth. The journalist is extremely one eyed and her story lacked detail. This might be because I am ready Helen Gardner's novel on the court case at the moment, in comparision she is leaving out critical points that make the whole story.

by yheal

Great and not overdone

I really enjoy these, have listened to two this morning and they are done will class, respect and empathy. Not over dramatised (like other crime podcasts) and both presenters are very articulate. I look forward to more.

by Jrod00018

Great Stuff

Great podcast and very engaging given it's local stories . One tip though ... sort the mic levels out lady's ????????????

by Subtlehustler666

Another brilliant Podcast by Mamamia.

What sensitive and engaging interviews. These are not easy topics especially when interviewing people connected to the cases. Looking forward to upcoming episodes!

There's no podcast!

What a joke? At the time of this review there is noting but a 46 second teaser. How can a podcast that's 'coming soon' be 2nd on the iTunes podcast chart. A pox both on this podcast AND on the credibility of iTunes.

Re the other review to date … How can you say it's a good podcast? There's only a 46 second 'coming soon' so far. Good god.
