Aussie True Crime podcast reaches 2 million downloads


Australian True Crime podcast One Minute Remaining has hit two million downloads in just nine months since its launch.

Program host Jack Laurence speaks with inmates serving lengthy prison sentences in the United States about their convictions for a range of serious crimes.

Jack looks at the case against them and allows the inmates to tell their accounts of the events that lead up to their incarceration until there’s one minute remaining.

Jack says “It’s honestly mind blowing what the show has managed to achieve in the last nine months and I couldn’t be more proud.”

“We’ve not only created a product that people seem to be really enjoying but also a really strong loyal brand following with over 4,000 people interacting with the show in our Facebook group each week.”

The show is hosted, distributed and monetised by Acast as part of the Acast Creator Network.

Guy Scott-Wilson, Acast’s Content Director for Aust/NZ says “What Jack has created with One Minute Remaining is a testament to the unwavering power of great storytelling. It’s a unique format, has real human interest and a higher purpose – so it’s no surprise to see it tap into Australia’s enduring love of true crime so emphatically.”

“As a creator-centric platform, we love watching Jack succeed with his ambitions for this show!”

Dom Evans, Owner of Earsay productions says “Since Jack first shared the demo with me in August of last year, I knew this show would be big – I just didn’t realise how big. These numbers confirm that if you build it and build it well, they will come.”

As for the future of One Minute Remaining, Jack hopes to be able to continue for many years to come, “When I started the show I honestly wasn’t sure where it would lead or how long it may last, I guess I still don’t but all I know is that I will continue to create it for as long as people want to hear it.”

A new episode of One Minute Remaining is released every Tuesday and Thursday.
