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:

Les Miserables

It adds to the strange nature of this case that there are two podcasts about it released at the same time but both pretend the other one doesn’t exist, unless it will be mentioned later. Please someone teach the Journalist how to pronounce Les Miserables, the butchered pronunciation was distracting, it made me cringe in the middle of a very sad story.

Pointless

I can’t recommend this podcast to anyone. It didn’t really go anywhere and was totally duped at the final episode when I thought all would be revealed and it wasn’t. Don’t waste your time.
