    This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed.

    Professor Richard Bassed is the Deputy Director at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine and the Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine at Monash University.

    I had the opportunity to interview Richard for my book "CSI Told You Lies" about his work in identifying victims in mass casualty events, such as the Black Saturday Bushfires and the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.

    Currently, Richard is deeply invested in researching and utilising AI technology, as it has the potential to make a significant difference in the speed and cost of victim identification.

    Shortcut: The Former Homicide Detective Changing The Way We Think About PTSD

    Shortcut: The Former Homicide Detective Changing The Way We Think About PTSD

    This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed.
    Former VicPol Detective Senior Sergeant, Tim Peck, has just released a book entitled The Invisible Obvious about his miraculous recovery from alcoholism and severely compromised mental health.
    He's unflinchingly honest about the depths of despair that took him very close to taking his own life in 2014 at the peak of his career, and the circumstances that prevented him from accepting help until it was almost too late.

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.

Quickly becoming a favorite!!!

Good content, but know-it-all host

She often talks over and interrupts her guests - let THEM tell the story.
