Murder in the Land of Oz

Look, folks, they can’t all be bangers.

This episode we discuss the lead-up to the most famous Australian case of all time – the death of Azaria Chamberlain. You’ve heard “dingoes ate my baby” a thousand times in pop culture, and today we discuss what actually happened the day that dingoes did indeed take Lindy Chamberlain’s baby, as well as a bit of a discussion about the cultural impact that this case has had.

Next week we’ll dive into the inquests and trials that began in the 80s and continued until literally two thousand and fucking twelve, so brace yourselves for a big one.

We also discussed on the murder of Hannah Clarke and her three children, Aaliyah, Laianah, and Trey. We’ll discuss this more as information becomes available, but the official MITLOO stance of “never blame the victim” remains in place.

EPISODE NOTES:

Azaria Chamberlain was a nine-week-old baby that was taken by dingoes while on a family holiday to Uluru in 1980. Her mother, Lindy, and to a lesser extent, her father Michael, were the victims of a brutal media campaign that suggested that the Chamberlains had in fact murdered Azaria and used the dingo story as an outrageous a cover up.

Truth is often stranger than fiction, and time would eventually tell that little baby Azaria was, indeed, taken by a dingo. But in the intervening decades, the Chamberlains would be vilified by the media, spend time in prison, and have the death of their baby become a punchline in movies and TV shows.
