Thankyou & Goodbye True Blue Crime

We have decided to finish up making episodes for True Blue Crime.This will undoubtedly be a surprise and disappointing for many people, but we want to finish things on our terms and now feels like the right time to do that.It’s a decision that we don't take lightly and we’ve been discussing for a while now, and we’ve reached it together.When we started this show, we committed to ten episodes, and didn’t expect anyone outside of our partners, family and friends to listen to it. We were stunned when the downloads kept going up and more and more people were tuning in.  Now we feel that we’ve taken the show in its current format with our current resources as far as we can.It's been a blast making these episodes for you all. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening, giving our show a chance, and following us throughout our journey. Shaun & ChloeSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/true-blue-crime.

Brisbane, 1983

A lost father, a mute brother, a mum in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious crime for a babysitter. It’s not as if Eli’s life isn’t complicated enough already. He’s just trying to follow his heart, learning what it takes to be a good man, but life just keeps throwing obstacles in the way – not least of which is Tytus Broz, legendary Brisbane drug dealer.

But Eli’s life is about to get a whole lot more serious. He’s about to fall in love. And, oh yeah, he has to break into Boggo Road Gaol on Christmas Day, to save his mum.


As he flees the police, Ned Kelly scribbles his narrative in semiliterate but magically descriptive prose.

To his pursuers he is a thief and a murderer. To his own people he’s a hero for opposing the English. Ned, who saw his first prison cell at fifteen, has become the most wanted man in the wild colony of Victoria, taking over towns and defying authority. Here is a classic outlaw tale, made alive by the skill of a great novelist.

There are no sentences like these in all Australian literature and yet they could only have grown from our soil.
