10 Speaks releases ‘Where’s William Tyrell?’ podcast

Staff Writer

Network Ten’s new podcasting platform 10 Speaks is jumping on the true crime bandwagon with a new pod called Where’s William Tyrell?

The podcast is set to focus on the disappearance of missing child William Tyrrell in 2014.

Hosted by 10 News First journalist Lia Harris in conversation with Natarsha Belling, Where’s William Tyrrell? is produced in consultation with William’s foster parents, who feature extensively.

William vanished from his foster grandmother’s house in Kendall, NSW at the age of three.

“I was one of the first journalists on the scene in Kendall when William disappeared and I’ve been following the case closely ever since. I’ve become determined to uncover the truth, particularly as I have come to know his foster family so well,” said Harris.

“This podcast will include an unprecedented in-depth interview with his foster parents as they speak about the devastating day William went missing, what life has been like for them over the past four and a half years and what they hope for the future of the investigation.

“They, like me, hope this podcast will shed new light on the case and help bring them some much-needed closure.”

The first episode is out today, and excerpts will appear exclusively on 10 News First on Monday, June 24.

“We have a fantastic team of journalists here at 10 and now, with 10 Speaks, we’re able to extend their talents into the audio space,” said Network 10’s director of news content Ross Dagan.

“Where’s William Tyrrell? reflects Lia’s brilliant inquiring mind, hard work and unwavering dedication to the story. It delves deep into the baffling disappearance of William with the support of his foster parents – that is incredible access.

“For anyone who has followed the case, this is a must-listen fresh perspective. We all hope it helps us get closer to uncovering what happened to William, particularly in the lead-up to the August inquest.”

The podcast is also available on AcastItunes and Spotify.

On the “anything is possible” episode you mention near tbe end of the episode that if someone has mental health and could have done something to contact someone, to make the call.

This is a disgraceful stigmatising comment, comparing people with mental health issues to a child abductor or child murderer, when statistically pepole with mental health issues are more likely to be victims of crime than they are the perpetrators of crime.

You should be ashamed of yourselves.
