Meshel Laurie and TEG to put on virtual event for ‘Australian True Crime’ podcast
Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb will host a virtual event for their podcast, Australian True Crime, in October.
The show is being promoted by TEG Dainty, with tickets going for $24.95 plus a $3.95 merchant fee.
Australian True Crime Live will feature three guests, in addition to Laurie and Webb. Andrew Rule will discuss his experiences working with criminal Mark ‘Chopper’ Read. Julia Robson will go behind the scenes of her successful Chasing Charlie podcast, including stories which never made it to air. And homicide detective Charlie Bezinna will delve into cases which have devolved from stalking to homicide.
“Australian True Crime fans will be ecstatic to see Andrew, Julia and Charlie come to the screen for what is set to be a riveting evening filled with captivating conversations, and never-before-heard insights and revelation,” publicity for the October 10 event said.
The podcast said it now has a monthly listenership of 1.4 million.
TEG Dainty noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has required content creators and live entertainers to be nimble and adapt.
“Promoters and creators around the globe have been getting creative in their efforts to pivot and find new ways to cater to an audience that desperately craves the vibrant mix of entertainment, escapism and connectedness that traditional live events typically provide,” a media release said.
Brad Drummond, a promoter at TEG Dainty, added that live-streaming has also evolved.
“It is no secret that COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the live touring industry. With all touring on indefinite hiatus, promoters and creators alike have been forced to pivot and find new and exciting ways to deliver fans a live experience in their loungerooms. We have worked hard developing a different approach to live-streaming; an approach that combines high production value and unique interactive experiences,” he said.
