SBS True Stories
by Special Broadcasting Service
Each season of SBS True Stories explores a different theme. From high school survival tales to true stories of untold Australia, this podcast features some of Australia’s best emerging and established storytellers (with gorgeous original music and sound design to boot).
The series’ latest incarnation – Season Three – is a five-part investigation into the untold stories of Adelaide’s gay-hate murders, exploring the intriguing circumstances of an unsolved case. Told by award-winning Australian investigative journalist and writer Mark Whittaker, each episode includes Mark’s investigative reports alongside interviews with the victims’ families, police and legal professionals. (The mini-series was made as part of a broader cross-platform project from SBS – unearthing a series of gripping true crime stories and a buried chapter of Australia’s recent history.)
The latest (and perhaps surprising) turn this always colourful podcast has taken exemplifies true crime done well. Tasteful, well told and superbly crafted by a deft production team.
