    175. Milat Family Legacy: The Murder of David Auchterlonie

    You could say the crap apple doesn't fall too far from the crap tree. In the case of Matthew Milat this couldn't be more true. Nephew of Backpacker Murderer, Ivan Milat, Matthew’s crimes were also brutal and disgusting.


    On November 20, 2010, Matthew lured David Auchterlonie to the Belanglo State Forest on his 17th birthday with the promise of beers and weed. There, with the help of friend Cohen Klein, they tortured, tormented and murdered David with a double-sided battle axe in the same forest where his Uncle murdered seven backpackers nearly 20 years earlier.


    This episode was recorded on the 10th Anniversary of the evening when Matthew murdered David Auchterlonie.

    174. Sin City Mariticide

    174. Sin City Mariticide

    When Las Vegas real estate magnate Ron Rudin went missing in 1994, his wife Margaret didn’t seem too concerned. He’d been gone four days before she reported Ron missing, and she did so only after Ron's coworkers had already informed the police. Margaret soon became the prime suspect when her husband's charred remains were discovered at a nearby Lake. When the law closed in on the softly spoken grandmother, she skipped town. On the lam, Margaret Rudin deployed a plethora of disguises and fake identities to elude capture.

    171. That Bastard Bruce Burrell - Part One

    74-year-old widow Dottie Davis disappeared from the beautiful seaside suburb of Maroubra, in Sydney in 1995. She was never seen again and the case soon went cold. Two years later, mother of three Kerry Whelan was kidnapped in Parramatta and a one million dollar ransom was demanded for her safe return. It would take police nearly a decade to find the perpetrator of these seemingly unrelated cases and bring the bastard to justice.

    This is Part Two of Beefcake and Bullets – The Chippendales Murder, if you haven't listened to part one and you want any of this to make sense, we suggest you push stop and go back and listen to episode 168.

Emmy award winning television producer and Broadway choreographer, Nick De Noia gave the Chippendales routines the glitz and glamor that made them world famous. But Steve, not adverse to acts of crime to retain his power, had a falling out with De Noia and called in his right hand man and crappy doer of cheeky arsons, Ray Colon to organise a hit on the unsuspecting Nick De Noia.


    TCNT: Tara interviewed podcaster and author Paul Verhoeven about his true crime books Loose Units and his latest release Electric Blue.


    Aussie As: A fancy private school in the affluent suburb of North Sydney makes headlines after a vile muck up day challenge is made public.

    Steve Banerjee, creator of the world famous male stripper troupe, The Chippendales, would do anything to protect his brand. And what a brand it was; at their peak the Chippendales were raking in millions of dollars a year. Controlling and consumed by greed, Steve had everything he could dream of thanks to his thrusting empire of man meat, but it was never enough. In the end he resorted to arson, extortion and murder to retain his power. Welcome to part one of our two part special on The Chippendales Murder.

DanoMac1980 ,

Amazing!

If you love true crime and a lot of laughs this is the podcast for you! Barney and Tara are so great. This pod cast is my new obsession and it makes my daily commute something I actually look forward to. Also don’t miss out on the banter at the end of the episodes. It’s totally worth listing to especially if you (like me) can’t get enough of Barney and Tara time! All I can say/yell is “HEY BABY!!!” Thanks B&T, your new stalker -Dan from Massachusetts

XXL Historian ,

Bloody Murder

Fantastic show, the hosts even mentioned a not so very well known super hero Sex Ghost from the marvel comics collection.
So put your comfy jorts on, grab a bowl of
cheese corn and listen to a great story.

alison.salsa ,

The hosts are wonderful and candid! Their jokes land every time
