True-crime podcaster, veteran reporter for the Los Angeles Times, and novelist, Christopher Goffard, is heading to Australia in March 2018 to conduct a live conversation about his hit-podcast Dirty John!
If your unfamiliar, Dirty John is a six-part series that explores the dark side of humanity’s need for love. The podcast arrived in the wake of Serial’s success, managing to garner a whopping 10 million downloads in just six weeks.
The podcast tells the story of Debra Newell and her messy relationship with the handsome anesthesiologist John Meehan – whom she met on a dating site. The story delves into Meehan’s dark past and obsession for dominance; as a horrifying tale of love, deception and psychological control, unfolds.
“Making Dirty John became an all-consuming obsession for me,” Goffard says. “I’m looking forward to coming to Australia and sharing some stories about how it came together and why I think it’s penetrated the zeitgeist.”
Tickets will include a live Q & A, as well as, a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of Dirty John and the reveal of some fascinating details that never made it to the podcast.
The show will be held in Melbourne, Sydney, QLD and Perth. Tickets go on sale 2 PM Friday, November 24 for the general public, however, Live Nation members can score pre-sale tickets at 2 PM November 22 until 5 PM November 23.
