William Tyrrell was a three year old boy who disappeared from the village of Kendall, on the mid-north-coast of New South Wales.

Key facts were kept from the public, from day one. A lot of what was reported, especially early on, was false.

In the new podcast, Nowhere Child, The Australian's Caroline Overington delves into a case where notions of class and privilege; opportunity and poverty came crashing together, to create a nightmare for William Tyrrell.

Music used in this podcast:

Daniel Birch - Blue Lobster, Trees in the Wind, Marimba on the Loose
Electric-tric - Sketch 9

Worst commentator

My golly- she’s just the worst. Don’t mean to be awful this lady- blah

Great analysis, balanced. Good story telling

I know a lot of people are saying it’s against the foster carers but I don’t see that in this podcast. All parties are given a voice and respect. And a number of angles are interrogated. Worth a listen. Caroline Overington is a compassionate and compelling story teller.

Should have been so much better

This is such a disappointing podcast. It’s such an important story but told so poorly. The hosts style is very off putting. Constantly sounds like she’s on the verge of tears. The story is all over the place and confusing when she sometimes calls the foster parents ‘mum and dad’ and sometimes calls them the ‘fosters’. She’s also very obviously on the side of the biological parents and the bias is disappointing. Paints foster parents in an unfair light.
