The Confession

The Confession

The Age and Sydney Morning Herald

The Confession is a podcast where the justice system itself is on trial.

At the centre of it all is Katia Pyliotis, accused of bludgeoning a man with a statue of the Virgin Mary. Four years of Katia’s life is spent behind bars, until the truth emerges because of a stroke of luck. When an item thought long lost is suddenly found and the spotlight is shifted from Katia to her accusers, the police.

Richard Baker tells the story of a murder, a botched trial and the system that allowed it to happen.
