About Australian True Crime:

Australian True Crime brings the genre we love to life, with nerdy deep dives into infamous crimes and cases led by comedian and media personality, Meshel Laurie, and journalist and true crime writer Emily Webb.  The formidable duo go beyond the headlines, delving deep and exploring some of the darkest corners of human nature to give a voice to people affected by violent crime. 

Fans can’t get enough of their enthralling content.  A permanent fixture at the top of the charts, their hit podcast has built to an impressive monthly listenership of 1.4 million. 

About Andrew Rule:

Andrew Rule grew up in eastern Victoria surrounded by animals. Too small to be a mounted policeman, too big to be a professional jockey, too frightened to be a rodeo rider, he won the 1974 Sale Agricultural Show essay competition ($5 first prize) before starting as a reporter with the Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator. He later worked at The Age, The Herald and the Herald Sun, has written and published too many books, most about crime, and claims to have once spent a week with a circus and to be the only Walkley award winner to have won a horse race.

About Julia Robson:

Former Policewoman Julia Robson is a licensed Private Investigator in Melbourne and Director of Online Investigations.

Her hugely popular podcast Chasing Charlie is currently sitting at #2 on the Australian charts. The podcast follows her hunt for an elusive conman named Charlie, who has scammed unsuspecting victims around the world and left a trail of destruction in his wake.

Originating from New Zealand, Julia joined the NZ Police before gaining international experience through her work as a Corporate Investigator in the United Kingdom. During her time in London, she travelled throughout Europe conducting undercover surveillance and investigated internal theft, fraud and a range of intellectual property-based investigations.

Taking the knowledge learned from her time in Europe and ongoing training in America, she has created a unique skill and niche expertise in the online investigation arena. She is now a Private Investigator based in Melbourne.

Julia is also known for her media work as the Investigator on Network TEN’s series Long Lost Family, Foxtel’s Real Housewives of Sydney and the “PI Case Files”, a weekly segment that aired on radio solving listeners biggest mysteries.

About Charlie Bezzina:

Charlie retired from Victoria Police November 2009 after 38 years’ service.  He was a Specialist investigate into Police Corruption for a year, Drugs investigator for three years and a Homicide investigator for 17 years.    He has released an autobiography “The Job” about policing from the front line.   He can be heard on 3AW with his Crime Time Show.


The global health pandemic has required nimbleness from the live entertainment industry.  Promoters and creators around the globe have been getting creative in their efforts to pivot and find new ways to cater to an audience that desperately craves the vibrant mix of entertainment, escapism and connectedness that traditional live events typically provide. 

Through professionally produced virtual events, TEG Dainty can continue to give fans access to their favourite creators’ touring content.  The mode enables simulation of the in-person experience—complete with talent live on stage, exclusive content, curated discussion, compelling vision, interactivity, and professional production—all from the comfort of their loungeroom.

Just as importantly, events like this help to keep the wheels of the industry turning by providing work for contractors, artist teams and promoter teams.

“It is no secret that COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the live touring industry.  With all touring on indefinite hiatus, promoters and creators alike have been forced to pivot and find new and exciting ways to deliver fans a live experience in their loungerooms.  We have worked hard developing a different approach to live-streaming; an approach that combines high production value and unique interactive experiences.” – Brad Drummond, TEG Dainty promoter
