WeCrashed: The Rise And Fall Of WeWork

In 2019, Adam Neumann thought he was on the brink of making history. His company, WeWork, took a regular office space and added high-tech amenities, kombucha, and a cool, modern co-working space for young entrepreneurs. Valued at $47 billion, you’d be hard pressed to go to a city and not find one of their epic spots. WeWork was supposed to completely reinvent office life...so how did it all crash down? From Wondery, aka the people behind Dirty John, WeCrashed is a six-part series about the rise and shocking fall of WeWork.

The Ghost Files

Warning: you may want to sleep with the light on after listening to this creepy podcast. In The Ghost Files, Karina Machado, author of Spirit Sisters and Love Never Dies, brings listeners spine-tingling stories of the supernatural variety. Each ep features conversations with people who share their first-hand experiences with ghosts. There’s chilling stories like Sophie Tate, who only realised once she’d moved into her dream house in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula that something evil was already in residence. Her ep, entitled ‘The Spirit In My House Tried To Kill Me’ will give you chills. 

Chasing Cosby

For decades families all around the world welcomed Bill Cosby into their homes as the loveable dad in The Cosby Show. But behind the jokes and accolades, the comedian was leading a dark, secret life—preying on women. One of those women was Andrea Constand, the only one of Cosby’s 60-plus accusers whose case could be tried in a court of law. In this podcast, she’s telling her side of the story, along with firsthand accounts from more than a dozen survivors, jurors and prosecutors. Direct from The Los Angeles Times, a new ep drops every Tuesday.  

Forgotten Australia

If you snoozed through history at school, never fear, this epic new podcast is here to shed light on some of Australia’s most intriguing stories—and we can guarantee it’s a whole lot more interesting than the classroom. Journalist Michael Adams delves deep into Australia’s underbelly covering everything from the weekend Melbourne was ruled by anarchic mobs, to Brisbane’s most puzzling murder mystery and the Lord Howe Islander who tried to save passengers on the Titanic.

27 Club

27. A regular, run of the mill birthday for most, but for some of the biggest names in music, it’s become synonymous with a club that no one wanted to be a part of. Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse are just some of the world’s biggest stars who all died at the age of 27. Hosted by Jake Brennan, each ep of the 27 Club covers the scandalous, tortured lives of the these incredibly talented artists whose wild path to their early graves shaped and shifted our culture.
