  • 196 - Daniella Was 15 When She Escaped A Cult

    Daniella Mestyanek Young was born into the Children Of God religious cult. Her childhood was lived out behind the tall gates of a commune in Brazil, where the children were subjected to physical, emotional, and sexual abuse masked as religious discipline and divine love.

    At fifteen years old, she escaped. But the effects of what she experienced have had lasting impacts.

  • 195 - Gary Jubelin’s Life As A Homicide Detective

    After 34 years in the police and 25 years in homicide, it was former Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin’s job to catch killers. He worked on some of the biggest criminal cases in Australia, including the Lindt Cafe siege, the Bowraville murders, and the gruesome killing of drug dealer Terry Falconer.

    But it was the case of William Tyrrell that would cost Gary his career. In 2020, he was convicted for illegally recording four conversations with a person of interest in that investigation. Overnight, he was taken off a case he’d spent four years searching for answers on. And now, many in his old career refuse to associate with him. 

    So instead, he’s been befriending criminals who’ve done their time. Hardened ones…. the ones he used to be tasked with locking up. He wants to understand badness from the other side, to unpack what makes a human do evil things. 

    He joins Gemma Bath today to talk about that journey.

  • 194 - Crime Through The Eyes Of A Psychic Detective

    Debbie Malone is used to sceptics. She’s been brushed aside, turned away, and sworn at by people who say she’s a liar. That she’s making things up. 

    You see, Debbie is a psychic. For the past 30 years, she’s been using her abilities to help police investigate murders and find missing people, working on everything from the Ivan Milat backpacker killings, the disappearance of Bob Chappell, and the murder of six-year-old Keisha Weippeart.

    Debbie's worked with some of the most highly respected police officers and departments in the country, helping them make sense of clues, find murder scenes and burial sites, and provide context as to how and where someone died, often, through the eyes of the killer themselves.

  • 193 - Meet The Woman Who Cleans Up Crime Scenes

    Lee Iordanidis has been cleaning crime scenes for over thirty years. Her job has her brushing up against things most of us couldn't even imagine in our worst nightmares, and on a rare occasion, it even had her coming face to face with the person responsible for the crime scene she was cleaning.

    It's a job not many of us would choose for ourselves, but if it weren't for Lee many families would be left to clean up their loved one's remains alone.

    This is a True Crime Conversation that's stuck with us ever since we hung up the phone with Lee and it's one of the most surprising episodes we've ever made.
