    Prison Officer in Danger

    56:56

    Episode 232It’s hard to imagine a job where you have to be vigilant all the time, being ready to attend to traumatic and unpredictable situations. But that’s what prison officers have to do every day. Social worker and therapist Bruce Perham has worked with hundreds of officers and he’s written a book called Code Blue: Prison Officer in Danger about trauma and PTSD in these first responders.Through the course of his years of going in and out of prisons and hearing the day to day experiences of prison officers, Bruce came to understand that he was dealing with professionals expected to run toward unpredictably dangerous situations at any moment in the course of a work day. It’s a high risk occupation and one that we, as the general public, don’t really know much about.Thanks to our Guest Bruce Perham.Find out more about Bruce at https://letstalkdifferently.com.au/about-us/Bruce Perham’s book is Code Blue: Prison Officer in DangerMORE LISTENING:EP #75 Pentridge Confidential with Vaughn Ruddick EP #86 Self-mutilator Gary David with Vaughn Ruddick If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14 or https://www.lifeline.org.au/Phoenix Australia is Australia’s National Centre of Excellence in Posttraumatic Mental Health https://www.phoenixaustralia.org/Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by MeshelYou can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here.Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or...

    A 1942 cold case and cover up with Bob Marmion

    42:53

    Episode 231There were only two unsolved murders in the state of Victoria in 1942, and they are heavily shrouded in mystery. These murders happened during World War II time, on the Bellarine Peninsula, in Queenscliff, in an area occupied by Australian troops who were patrolling and defending the coastline.Early one cold, wintry morning in late May 1942, the bullet-ridden body of Army Driver Roy Willis was found on the side of the road. He had been shot a number of times with a military revolver.In September 1942 17-year-old Gunner John Hulston went missing whilst on guard duty. His body was later found further down the coast. He had also been shot in the chest with an army revolver.Former police officer and historian and researcher Bob Marmion, who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula, loves a good mystery and when he found out about these murders, and that they were still unsolved, the old detective skills he’d flexed in his 15 years in the job came back to life and he spent 10 years investigating and writing a book called Murder at the Fort.Thanks to our Guest Bob Marmion.His books are Murder at the Fort and The Price We Pay, about his experience with Post Traumatic Stress disorder.If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can phone Lifeline on 13 11 14.Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by MeshelYou can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here.Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or TwitterSupport us on PatreonVisit our BookshopListen on Apple PodcastsListen on Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    Noona Went to Jail

    1:06:05

    Show Notes Ep 229 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily WebbWell I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, some of the best people I’ve ever met have been to prison. Here’s another one. Catherine from Horsham went to jail, and she’s thoroughly lovely, in fact, I bet you can totally relate to her. I'm a bit delirious with our endless lockdown I have to admit. I don't think I'm ever going to be released from my home or ever hug another adult again. I'd probably love this if it was a book but this as a life sucks a big bag of dicks. It was very nice to zoom with Catherine. Our poor guests. Do you think they realise how desperate I am for their company? Anyway. All my love to you. I'll go and have another conversation with my dog now. Thank you so much for listening.Mx Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by Meshel You can support us with a one-off contribution here.You can become a patron here.You can subscribe to Calm Ya Farm here.You can visit the Calm Ya Farm website here. Like us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram or TwitterSupport us on PatreonVisit our BookshopListen on ApplePodcastsListen on GooglePodcastsListen on Spotify If you have any information on the cases covered by this podcast,please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.  Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.

    Organised crime loves supply chains

    53:11

    Episode 290 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie & Emily Webb.What does organised crime have to do with supply chains…and how is forensic science used to trace things like gold, diamonds and even food.These were the questions I had for Western Australia based Cameron Scadding who is a Forensic and Analytical Chemist and founder and Managing Director of a company called Source Certain International.Over the course of his career Cameron has worked on some fascinating and strange cases using forensic science to help solve crime.and he’ll tell us about one of these cases in more detail - the theft of gold from a mine in Kalgoorlie, the hub of the Western Australian goldfields. Cameron and his team also work to reduce the ways criminals can infiltrate the supply chains of products that we all rely on…even though we may not know it.Re. The gold that was stolen in the Operation Icarus case, Cameron calculated that based on this year’s prices (2021) (which is around $80,000AUD per kilogram) the gold recovered (and remember that it’s thought that more gold was stolen than was recovered) it was worth $800,000AUD.Thanks to this week’s guest Cameron Scadding, founder and managing director of Source Certain International.If you’re interested in learning more about organised crime, Emily guest hosted a podcast episode for the ATO’s podcast Tax InVoice about financial crime called “Lying, cheating thieves”.

    Dr Joanna Glengarry Forensic Pathologist

    54:35

    Show Notes Ep 225 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily WebbDr Joanna Glengarry studied for 8 years to be a surgeon but not long after completing her studies and entering the theatre she realised her true passion was forensic pathology. In her native Auckland, that meant another 5 years of formal study, just to get an introduction at the city mortuary. She was taken on as a Saturday volunteer.Fortunately for Joanna, but unfortunately for Auckland, the mortuary was severely understaffed, and they had a lot of violent deaths, so she quickly picked up more shifts, even paid ones, and in no time at all Dr Glengarry became a very handy forensic pathologist. SO handy in fact that she was poached of course, by the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine or VIFM in Melbourne.Dr Glengarry is one of the pathologists featured in my book CSI Told You Lies. Buy CSI Told You Lies by Meshel Laurie hereIn PaperbackAs an ebookAs an audiobook read by Meshel  Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/australiantruecrime.
