Disclosed: The Children In The Pictures

The story you weren’t allowed to hear is finally out in the open. Australian documentary-maker Akhim Dev follows the Queensland Police investigation of a notorious child exploitation website.

Crime Insiders

LiSTNR continues its reputation for creating compelling Australian crime podcasts with this new breakthrough podcast series. It takes audiences beyond true crime and into the real experience of those trying to solve crimes and analyse crime scenes. Made up of two show formats, Crime Insiders: Detectives and Crime Insiders: Forensics, the twice weekly podcast features episodes from those working in crime scene investigations, and those working in all areas of law enforcement. The result is ground-breaking interviews with experienced and decorated experts that explore the reality of trying to solve crimes. Any closer, you’d be at the scene. Listen


Crime Insiders: In Focus

You Don’t Know Me  

Play armchair detective with LiSTNR’s play-along fictional audio-drama, in which a teenage girl leaves her boyfriend's house, and is never seen again. The story of Lizzie Burdett’s mysterious disappearance, and the secrets of those in the community around her, is baffling. Set in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, there are unseen twists as each episode focuses on a different potential suspect. It is Big Little Lies meets Agatha Christie, and family drama meets crime-thriller, in a compelling all-new immersive audio-storytelling format. Listen
