19: CROCS NO SOCKS: The REAL Crocodile Dundee plus the death of Steve Irwin

On Eavesdroppin’ comedy podcast this week, hosts Geordie & Michelle discuss crocs!

Crocodile Dundee is an Australian icon – but did you know there was a REAL croc wild man who was the inspiration for the larger-than-life Croc Dundee? This week, Geordie delves into the real-life story of Rod Ansell, a croc hunting bushman whose story was turned into Aussie folklore. So who is Rod Ansell? What’s his story? What happened to him? And how did his life end? It’s a ripper of a tale that ends in tragedy – listen now to hear more!

Michelle then looks at the life and death of Aussie crocodile hunter and all-round nice guy Steve Irwin. On September 4, 2006, the world was shocked to learn of the death of Steve Irwin. A stingray stabbed its barb through his heart and the Aussie legend didn’t stand a chance. But is there more to the story? Michelle looks at what happened that day, who was there, why they kept filming the gruesome scene and what happened next plus the conspiracy theories swirling around the internet.

So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle for this week’s episode, plus chat about Baby Reindeer, sea snakes, murder and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
