  • 545 - Shortcut: The "Sharpie" Gangs

    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.


    The Sharpies were probably Australia's most fashionable gang in 1960s/70s Australia.


    Their clothing was custom made from European tailors and their hairstyles were unmistakable.


    Our guest for today's episode is Author and Social Worker, Julie Mac. Julie herself was a proud Sharpie in the 1970s, and she's here to tell us who the Sharpies really were beyond the violent headlines. 


    You can purchase Julie's latest book "TAILS" here.


    You can purchase signed copies of Julie's work here.


    Australian True Crime LIVE is coming to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne this weekend! It'll be full of special guests and Q+A's, and we can't wait to see you in person. You can find tickets by clicking this link.

  • 542 - Shortcut: The Future of Victim Identification

    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.
