The podcast has wrapped, the soft soil has been dug up, but the story of Lynette Dawson’s probable murder is not over.
Go behind The Teacher’s Pet podcast series with its creator, Hedley Thomas, who also happens to be The Australian’s national chief correspondent and a 2018 Gold Walkley winning journalist.
With more than 27 million downloads since launch in May, The Teacher’s Pet, has become one of the world’s top true crime podcasts, leading to new witnesses coming forward and an open investigation of the case. In this Q&A, Thomas will share why he was captivated by the mysterious disappearance of a Northern Beaches mother more than three decades ago, the unconventional process involved in making the hit podcast, and the story behind the Hollywood bidding war to turn it into a movie.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear how Thomas and producer Slade Gibson, a former guitarist with Savage Garden, investigated The Teacher’s Pet, uncovering the hidden story of violence, a ring of predatory teachers, and the unusually close relationship between the Dawson twins.
