I am a producer with the investigative history podcast, History Lab. The podcast was created by the Australian Centre for Public History at the University of Technology Sydney.
History Lab won a silver prize in the 2019 New York Festivals Radio Awards.
I have produced two episodes of the show, Lindy Chamberlain and the afterlife of evidence and Invisible Hands.
Lindy Chamberlain and the afterlife of evidence explores what happens to evidence after a criminal trial through the story of one of the worst miscarriages of justice in Australian history.
Invisible Hands looks at the dying craft of Engineering Patternmaking. Patternmaking is the first step in most mass-production lines. So why are they soon to be a thing of the past?
We are surrounded by mass-produced things, but every production line start with a single object. This episode shines a light on the patternmakers, whose invisible hands are the original creators of much of our stuff. They see a world no-one else can see. So why are they disappearing? And what will we lose when they are gone?
What happens to evidence after a criminal trial? Lindy Chamberlain’s legal saga is one of the worst miscarriages of justice in Australian history. This episode retells her story through the criminal evidence that sent her to jail. It is the first episode of season 1 of the podcast series History Lab.
