Introducing: Hoaxed

Introducing: Hoaxed

2022-09-0301:16

In 2014, two children told police a shocking story: that they were being abused by a Satanic cult; a cult headed by their father and by parents and teachers at their school in the wealthy London suburb of Hampstead. The story was a lie. But on the internet, that didn't matter. From the team who brought you Sweet Bobby, Hoaxed is an investigation into one of Britain's most serious-ever conspiracy theories. A story about a modern-day Satanic panic; about the victims whose lives were destroyed and about the conspiracists who spread the lie around the world. Oh, and it's about our hunt for the perpetrators - the people who forced the kids to lie - the ones who started it all. New episodes of Hoaxed launch each week, but Tortoise members and Tortoise+ subscribers on Apple Podcasts get exclusive, early and ad-free access.

Introducing ... Pig Iron

Introducing ... Pig Iron

Introducing...Pig Iron. A story about the mysterious death – and life – of a young war reporter killed on the frontline in South Sudan. Christopher Allen was just 26 when he died and at first, it looked like another tragedy of war. A journalist caught in the crossfire. But, hours after his death, his story splintered. The government claimed he wasn’t a journalist at all, but a mercenary. Other evidence suggested he was targeted for being a reporter. In this new series from Tortoise and the team behind Sweet Bobby, Pig Iron is a journey into the seduction of war, the complicated relationships made on the frontline and what really happened to Christopher Allen.  Search Pig Iron from Tortoise wherever you get your podcast to listen to the first four episodes of the series, and follow the feed to be the first to know about future episodes. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
