    Casefile Presents: The Invisible Hand

    Casefile Presents: The Invisible Hand

    When the acclaimed Silent Waves podcast was released on our Casefile Presents network in 2019, I knew that the show’s co-creator and producer Georgina Savage must have another story she needed to tell.  That’s when Georgina told me about The Invisible Hand, an ambitious and somewhat dangerous pitch for a podcast.  




    The podcast series would involve travel to South Africa and Mozambique, hiring a local fixer to ensure the safety of those involved - to tell a story that goes beyond the popular headlines - to document it from a never before heard angle.



    And so The Invisible Hand came to fruition. Join Georgina Savage as she returns to her birth country of South Africa, where her cousin’s family live deep in the bush of the Kruger National Park - fighting on the front lines of a conservation war against rhino poaching.  



    Go behind the headlines with Georgina as she is given unique access and immerses herself in the lives of individuals connected to the illegal trade, including the men who poach rhinos, in an attempt to understand the personal circumstances of those entangled in a crisis.



    Stay tuned to hear the show’s trailer. And while you’re listening, be sure to search for The Invisible Hand wherever you get your podcasts and hit the follow button. You can also listen on the website www.invisiblehandpodcast.com.

Since Day 1

Been my favourite true crime podcast since I first discovered podcasts. I genuinely hope that with whatever our beloved host is going through, he is able to find support, love, and peace. 💜

Best true crime podcast hands down

Well-researched true crime stories, told in a way that keeps you gripped from start to finish. I have listened to every single episode twice. Love the host’s voice — I totally don’t understand the complaints about him being monotone or boring. I just find his voice and intonation calm and measured. There are plenty of other podcasts with singsongy animated voices. To each their own.

Drone

OMG.I managed about 10 sentences before stopping. There is no way I could put up with the narrator's drone.One of the biggest problems with many independent podcasts is that narrators are not objective about their voices or their inabilities to ‘read’ professionally. Listen to a professional and learn.
