‘The Teacher’s Pet’ listenership soars following renewed search for body
The Teacher’s Pet, a true crime series produced by The Australian, has seen over 600,000 listeners flock to the show in just two days following renewed police interest in the case.
The series follows the story of Sydney mother-of-two Lyn Dawson, who disappeared in 1982 after her husband Chris moved his teenage lover Joanne Curtis into their family home. It’s presented by The Australian national chief correspondent Hedley Thomas.
On Wednesday NSW Police confirmed that they had renewed the search for Lyn’s body. The Australian has reported today that NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said that the podcast had provided new information and opportunity to generate new leads.
The 14-part podcast has garnered over 19.1 million listens since it’s debut in May, which also saw it top Australian iTunes chart for three months.
