Podshape launches new True Crime podcast


New podcast The Sting follows the story of an undercover detective who infiltrated the Australian Mafia for 37 months.

It’s a story of drug conspiracies, murders and mayhem.

Colin McLaren is an internationally renowned detective, documentary filmmaker, crime writer and former police sergeant. As an undercover cop his sole purpose was to find the bomber of the National Crime Authority building in Adelaide.

The Sting is a 10-part series. McLaren put his life on the line as he embarked on the journey that eventually brought justice for a murdered colleague and friend and ultimately resulted in one of the greatest stings of all time.

Podshape creator Jay Walkerden says “Colin’s story is such an interesting one, to hear the lengths that him and his team went to for justice is almost unbelievable. This podcast gives a never before heard insight into how close to the edge our police officers get, and it was a privilege to work with him and tell this story.”

McLaren says “The Sting podcast offered me an opportunity to tell how we truly stung the Mafia – over three years – and brought two Mafia cells to their knees.”

“It tells of gritty endeavour, powerful camaraderie, undercover cops facing-off thugs capable of murder, massive drug importations and the bombing of a police headquarters. But, most of all, it’s my story, and I make sure that the truth is presented with all its casualties.”

The Sting is available now on Apple Podcast subscriptions with episodes being released weekly to subscribers and across all platforms from January 30th.
