8. Under Pressure
It started with a phone call, sent by the whistle blower I had intended you to meet. I wanted to wrap series one of The Nurse with a neat bow, ending it the way it began. But life is messy and things aren't black and white, so this isn't the episode I intended to write. Maybe one day we will meet them, but for now, it is enough that they told me one summer night and triggered all that has happened since. Like a Commission of Inquiry... This episode marks the last of the 'weekly drops' for a couple of weeks, unless or until news breaks. See you then. Tasmania Police are ready to deal with reports that relate to any criminal activity, historic or ongoing, but only those that include other perpetrators- please call them in the first instance: 131 444 Anyone struggling with their mental health and feelings of suicidal ideation or depression can call LIFELINE AUSTRALIA 13 11 14 Locals can reach Launceston counselling service Laurel House https://laurelhouse.org.au/ Send any tips or information to thenursepodcast@protonmail.com Theme: Stronger Together - Myuu thedarkpiano.com The Viscante Hit by Philip Rice Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/6822-the-viscante-hit License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Clockwise by Philip Rice Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/6806-clockwise License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Final Step by Rafael Krux Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/5294-final-step- License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Satiate - only percussion by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/4320-satiate---only-percussion License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Satiate by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/4322-satiate License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Sebastian J F by Philip Rice Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/6819-sebastian-j-f License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Troublemaker Theme - Myuu thedarkpiano.com Long Note Four by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/3991-long-note-four License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Watching The World by Philip Rice Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/6824-watching-the-world License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Outsider - Myuu thedarkpiano.com Enter the Maze by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/3712-enter-the-maze License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Red Hot Australian Christmas
This week, Loose Units, Castaway Studios and Tegan Higginbotham proudly present Red Hot Australian Christmas, a hilarious and touching 45-minute Christmas audio play based in Gippsland, Victoria.  It’s Christmas in Australia, and Victoria is in the grip of an unprecedented heatwave.     As the mercury rises across the state, the threat of fire plays heavily on the minds of many. But for a stubborn few, Christmas is – first and foremost – a time for family, feasting, and forced frivolity. And as far as they’re concerned, the fires can go and get f**ked.    One such believer is grizzled country Grandmother Heather Kelly, who has finally managed to get her entire family under one roof in Maffra, Gippsland. But before Heather even has time to interrogate her children about their failing love lives, the family receive a fire evacuation order. Code Red – they have to leave.    With danger pressing in on them, the Kelly family pack Christmas into the back of a caravan and flee for their lives. But as night rolls into day and the fires begin to surround them, Heather has to face up to the fact that she could be about to lose much, much more than her Christmas.     Starring (in alphabetical order): Michala Banas, Eddie Baroo, Michelle Brasier, Bev Killick, Jackson Tozer, Paul Verhoeven, Kirsty Webeck.  With special guests, Georgia Love and John Verhoeven.     Written and directed by Tegan Higginbotham  Audio production by Paul Verhoeven  Proudly recorded on Wurundjeri land.   All proceeds going to Stand by Support – dedicated to supporting individuals and communities across Australia bereaved or impacted by suicide.     See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The death of a neo-Nazi crime boss
Phillip Grant Wilson was a neo-Nazi and a killer. He recruited a gang and according to one police report, ''This group undertook intense physical fitness training for the purpose of establishing a physical and mental advantage over police, especially the Special Operations Group, against whom they fully expected to come up against at some time in the future.'' Detective Sergeant John Morrish of the armed robbery squad was one of the key investigators who worked on Wilson. Morrish was known to have an intense dislike of people who used guns to terrorise members of the public. He wasn't too fond of Nazis either. On August 4, 1987, the Iceman was shot dead in an ambush outside a South Yarra chiropractic clinic. The murder remains unsolved. Silvester has a recorded interview with Wilson, and we hear John Morrish’s recollections, including that he was initially considered a suspect in Wilson’s murder. Thanks for listening.

Decades Of Abuse: The Case Of The Tasmanian Nurse - Part Two
This is the second part of a two part episode. If you haven't listened to part one, listen here now. Launceston is one of Australia’s oldest cities. Just south of the city centre stands Launceston General Hospital, one of the main public hospitals in the state of Tasmania. The hospital treats a quarter of a million patients every year, and over 150 years has built trust within the local community.  The children’s ward is known as Ward 4K - filled with doctors and nurses doing their best to make a child’s stay as comfortable as possible.  But for more than 20 years, one nurse - a grandfatherly figure to so many - allegedly preyed on sick children.  It wasn’t until May last year, when a young woman referred to as Alice walked into Launceston police station, that everything would begin to change.  Her story, police would discover, was only the beginning.  This story is told by investigative journalist Camille Bianchi, the creator, host and reporter behind The Nurse podcast. The Nurse is about a former Launceston nurse named James 'Jim' Geoffrey Griffin who lived in a quiet town in Tasmania, and spent his life working with children. He also hid a dark secret.  CREDITS Guest: Camille Bianchi, creator and host of The Nurse podcast   Host: Jessie Stephens Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri  Executive Producer: Zoe Ferguson CONTACT US Tell us what you think of the show via email at truecrime@mamamia.com.au   Join our closed Facebook community to discuss this episode.
