This podcast is all about celebrating great Australian journos. Our first interview is with one of Australia’s leading investigative reporters. Hedley Thomas is the co-creator and presenter of the phenomenally successful podcast The Teachers Pet, which at last count, has been downloaded more than 50 million times around the world. But what you may not know, is that this award winning podcast was Hedley’s first foray into that new technology. Hedley has been in the pursuit of truth for many years, in the process winning Australia's most prestigious journalism honour - the Gold Walkley Award - not once but twice. And all without having a social media presence.
As Chris Dawson's defence team, police and prosecutors work hard to prepare for a murder trial which may be heard some time next year, 2020, the team behind The Teacher's Pet podcast series discloses a new development - taking down the first 16 episodes in Australia, to help ensure Chris gets a fair trial. And Greg Walsh, Chris's experienced lawyer, flags some of the issues and claims which are important to him and the accused.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
