    Tied Up: Alec Baldwin

    Tied Up: Alec Baldwin

    Hello loves, we have another podcast recommendation for you, and this one is a bit of a crossover.
    It is a pop-culture podcast called Tied Up, hosted by two friends of mine Sonia Jahshan and Simon Baggs.
    I think this episode will be of particular interest to you, because they are talking about Alec Baldwin and whether or not he will face charges for that terrible shooting incident that took place on the set of his film, Rust.
    You can listen to all other Tied Up episodes, wherever you get your podcasts.
    Show notes:
    A more serious episode today on a story that has been flooding the news cycles and rocked Hollywood for the past two years - The death of cinematography Halyna Hutchins at the hands of actor Alec Baldwin. 
    Alec Baldwin could face prison time of up to 5 years for involuntary manslaughter.

    ATC Plus: Former FBI Agent, Stuart Kaplan Provides his Insight on the Idaho Murders

    ATC Plus: Former FBI Agent, Stuart Kaplan Provides his Insight on the Idaho Murders

    This episode is exclusively for ATC Plus subscribers.

    28 year old Ryan Christopher Kohberger was arrested and charged in late December with the murders of University of Idaho students Madison Mogen, 21. Kaylee Goncalves, 21. Xana Kernodle, 20 and Xana's boyfriend, Ethan Chapin, 20.

    Police allege Kohberger entered the house at 1122 King Road in Moscow Idaho that was shared by the females victims at around 4 a.m. on the morning of November 13, 2022. They believe that by 4:25, less than half an hour later, he brutally murdered all four and left the premises.

    This case is being covered so breathlessly by America's media. I've watched a lot of coverage, and my favourite pundit by far joins us for this episode of Australian True Crime Plus. He's an attorney now, but for decades he was an FBI agent specialising in just the kind of operation the agency mounted against Brian Kohberger in December.

    His name is Stuart Kaplan.

    Australian True Crime is back for 2023, and we begin this year with the story of Andrew Witton.

    He was sailing with another man at the time, Simon Golding. As far has Andrew's friends and family are concerned, Simon has yet to provide a satisfactory account of what happened to Andrew on that trip.

    Hoaxed: Secrets and Lies

    Hoaxed: Secrets and Lies

    We're taking a little break over Summer and using this time to spotlight some of our favourite true-crime podcasts.
    Introducing... Hoaxed, the new series from Alexi Mostrous and Tortoise, who brought you Sweet Bobby.
    In 2014, two children told police a shocking story: that they were being abused by a Satanic cult; a cult headed by their father and by parents and teachers at their school in the wealthy London suburb of Hampstead. The story was a lie. But on the internet, that didn't matter.
    Hoaxed is an investigation into one of Britain's most serious-ever conspiracy theories. A story about a modern-day Satanic panic; about the victims whose lives were destroyed and about the conspiracists who spread the lie around the world. Oh, and it's about our hunt for the perpetrators - the people who forced the kids to lie - the ones who started it all.
    You can listen to the rest of Hoaxed, wherever you get your podcasts.

    One Minute Remaining: David Talley

    One Minute Remaining: David Talley

    We're taking a little break over Summer and using this time to spotlight some of our favourite true-crime podcasts.
    This week we're showcasing Jack Laurence's podcast, One Minute Remaining.
    Today's episode is the story of David Talley, the man serving an incredible prison sentence. David, like millions of others around the world, struggled with addiction, an addiction to crack cocaine. This addiction would drive David to make poor decisions, decisions that would see him fall into a cycle of prison time for petty theft to help pay for his habit.
    After years of going in and out of prison and struggling with his addiction, David was yet again back in court after being arrested for a burglary on a gas station after hours. After being given bond and time to say goodbye to his kids David would make a heartbreaking decision, a decision which would change the course of his life forever.

Great podcast with very interesting topics

The episode - Particular PTSD of the County Town Beat, August 1, 2022, is really amazing! Anyone involved in law enforcement, relatives, friends or those interested in what it’s really like being a cop should listen to this episode.

Love This Podcast

I’m American so enjoy the many professionally done episodes here. There is no random chatter to put up with when you’ve downloaded to hear a true crime case. Interview with the forensic psychiatrist and another of a victim of a schizophrenic person was top of the mark interviewing.

ManniMon ,

One of my faves!

I love this podcast! I LOVE hearing from people directly connected with the cases you cover. I also think it very special how you acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which your show is recorded.
