    Dick Turpin Part 2: Stand and Deliver!

    This episode will be available for free on the 12th July. For early access, ad-free listening and exclusive content, try Noiser+ with a 7-day free trial.

    Dick Turpin steps out of the shadows as a housebreaker for the Essex Gang and takes to the highways, terrorising travellers on the roads around London, unleashing a crime spree that puts his name on the nations’ lips.

    The notorious highwayman will stop at nothing to stay one step ahead of the law – even cold-blooded murder. So how is it that this villain is still remembered as the romantic ‘Gentleman of the Road’? We continue to unravel the dark truth that lurks beneath the popular myth.

    Dick Turpin Part 1: The Essex Gang

    Dick Turpin Part 1: The Essex Gang

    “Stand and deliver! Your money or your life!”. It’s the 1730s, the era of the Highwayman. These words haunt the dreams of every rider and coachman who travels the roads of England. The cloaked bandit, face covered, looming out of the darkness - moonlight glinting off the barrel of a flintlock pistol. Noble robbers, folk heroes, or sadistic cutthroats? The myth of these outlaws, these so-called ‘gentlemen of the road’, has stalked English legend for centuries. A no legend looms larger than that of Dick Turpin.

    Ned Kelly Part 3: The Iron Man

    Ned Kelly Part 3: The Iron Man

    The Kelly Outbreak nears its bloody end. The Kelly Gang has successfully remained hidden and out of the reach of the law for over a year… but all that is about to change. Fearing betrayal and feeling the heat of the law closing in - Ned is determined to go out swinging. He devises a high stakes plan to turn the tables on the Victorian police force, resulting in an epic siege and a high-octane gunfight that will go down in history, and cement Ned Kelly as an outlaw legend for centuries to come.

    Ned Kelly Part 2: Outbreak

    Ned Kelly Part 2: Outbreak

    Ned Kelly, along with his brother Dan and two friends Steve and Joe are forced into hiding deep in the Victorian bush. Left to their own devices, perhaps things might cool off and settle down. I guess we’ll never know. When the police come knocking, all they’ll find is trouble. Deadly trouble. An incident will spark a crimewave that will split loyalties and pit the public against the authorities - it’ll go down in history as the Kelly Outbreak.

    Ned Kelly Part 1: The Bushranger

    Ned Kelly Part 1: The Bushranger

    Ned Kelly is the model social bandit, an Australian legend without equal – even today he’s still considered a symbol of rebellion against the establishment. But what’s the truth behind the myth? We journey into the harsh bushland territories of Colonial Australia to see what happens when the forces of Imperial authority collide with a young man who won’t lie down, or accept the hand he’s been dealt.

    Billy The Kid Part 3: Dead or Alive

    In the fallout of the Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid tries to bury his past, but his past won’t let him go. After another round of rough justice, Billy has had a stomach full of lawmen and lawyers.  
    With every gunfight and jailbreak, The Kid’s legend gains strength - a folk hero in the making. 
    Can Billy outrun the long arm of the law... Perhaps not, but he’s willing to die trying.

Looking forwards to seeing queer icons featured!

Haven’t listened yet, but I’m just popping in to remind folks of the appropriation of queer history (ie cowboys, women in the old west and pirates)— it’d be awesome if this podcast could feature their stories— after all, most of outlaw history is queer history 😌😌
