Fresh look emerges for Vacations & Travel MagazineBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Tuesday, 26th March 2019 at 1:14pm

A new crime podcast is brewing between NewsCorp Australia and NOVA Entertainment under the True Crime Australia brand, called Police Tape.
Scheduled for ten weekly episodes starting 29 March 2019, Police Tape is hosted by radio presenter Merricks Watts, with True Crime Australia editor and author Charles Miranda and The Daily Telegraph crime editor Mark Morri as partners.
The show features police officers from all over Australia who will share some insights about the cases they took on over the years, as well as the challenges they faced while on duty.
Swinburne University is also sponsoring the show through its offerings of online courses in psychology, behavioural science, and criminology. The rationale for this is that the content aired on the show will encourage some listeners to consider taking up professions in law-enforcement and the justice system.
