Unravel True Crime

ABC

The seven-episode series Unravel: Juanita tackles one of Australia's most chilling and unsolved true crime stories. In the early '70s, Sydney's Kings Cross was a hotbed of controversy around corruption and high-rise development, and the heart of Australia's criminal underground. Juanita Nielsen moved to Kings Cross where she published a local newspaper and became a vocal opponent in the fight to preserve heritage terraces and affordable housing in the area she loved. Did her activism cost her her life? Did she know too much? Who might have wanted her out of the way? And, after more than four decades, why doesn't her family have answers? UNRAVEL TRUE CRIME is an anthology podcast where, each season, some of Australia's best journalists investigate unsolved crimes.

Listen to the last episode:

Queensland in the 1950s: god-fearing, morally upstanding, tough on crime. Beneath the surface, a murky world of gambling, drugs and brothels kept in check by three crooked cops known as The Rat Pack. For thirty years, they ran a complex system of bribery and extortion as they pocketed the profits. But this trio never dreamed how things would end. That the women they exploited — madams, sex workers, entrepreneurs — would be their demise. Journalist Matt Condon weaves a David and Goliath story with never-before-heard tapes from his decade of reporting on Queensland's police corruption. Sirens are Coming is the newest season of the ABC's history podcast, Dig. Search for Dig: Sirens Are Coming to listen to the full series now.
