  • After 34 years in the police and 25 years in homicide, Detective Inspector (retd) Gary Jubelin is tracking down the detectives who inspire him - and the odd hardcore criminal - to extract their tricks of the trade. Over beers, they reveal the untold true stories of Australia’s most terrifying murders - and the cases that still haunt them. Equal parts hilarious and horrifying, this is “shop talk” like you’ve never heard before.

    Now, she returns to her first and true love in the ‘My Wardrobe Malfunction’ podcast in which she meets a dazzling array of well-known figures to discuss their relationship with clothes – as they reveal everything from their 'comfort blanket' to their 'burial suit' and, of course, their ultimate wardrobe malfunction...
