A young woman disappears into a rain-soaked night. A country town divides on rumour and speculation. And the relentless quest of a family to uncover the truth. The Walkley Award-winning investigative journalist behind The Teacher’s Pet, Hedley Thomas, is back with a brand new podcast, The Night Driver. New episodes of The Night Driver will be available exclusively to subscribers of The Australian for two weeks via the podcast player in The Australian's app, before becoming available on all other podcast platforms.
