Hello, Eavesdroppers! Thanks for joining us for another True Crime episode. This week, we start off with an update on the Australian murder case that’s currently in the courts: the disappearance of Lynette Dawson. Geordie & Michelle discuss how the case against Lyn Dawson’s husband Chris Dawson is progressing and shed some light on events that have now been admitted into evidence… 

Michelle then delves into a Canberra Hometown Murder from the 1980s – the mysterious disappearance of Canberra teenager Liz Herfort. Why didn’t Liz get a bus home from the UNI bar the night of June 13 1980? Did she hitchhike? Was she arguing with a man in a hat on the side of the road? Why would someone make up a story about abducting her? Who is Harry the Hat? And could a serial killer be responsible? Listen to find out!

Geordie then talks about the time Patricia Arquette revealed the worst date she’s ever been on, which turned out to be with an ex pro skater… Who is Mark Gator Rogowski? Why did he end up murdering his ex-girlfriend Brandi McClain’s friend Jessica Bergsten? Was it a revenge killing? How do Michelle and Geordie end up talking about the Canberra Uni Bar? And what’s Heidi Fleiss got to do with it? Get listening to learn more!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode – and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
