“Powerful stuff. Am in awe of prison officer o Sullivan. I often think how life in prison works and how the dynamic of officer - prisoner relationships can help both. Very candid , honest and respectful of one another. I often felt that sully was a prisoner himself. Great insight. Thank u . Mark”

“I read the article in the age on Saturday and that was just a taste of the podcast. This was superb listening. Heartwarming, uplifting, broad in span and so deeply human. As a melbourne tragic it also resonated. Brilliant”

It’s not that hard is it Sly?
And see you have plenty of followers.

“One of the best true crime podcasts no doubt. Cool to hear from both the cops and the crims, and cool to see that both groups respect John and were willing to give him time. Thoroughly enjoy this one”

“Interesting podcast about jaqui ranchen, I was working next door during this time . I witnessed many arguments and on occasions jaqui fleeing the property from the front door . On one occasion she had look of complete fear on her face , she jumped into the car and fled.”

“As an interstate truck driver for over 40 years I thought I had experienced all matter of personalities & characters

Maybe an understatement
The brutal, calculating& callous & also comedic

“This is without a doubt the best podcast I’ve listen to. Not only is it interesting but the way it’s produced it has you hooked in from the beginning, you yearn for more. I can’t wait for Wednesday’s to come around so I can listen to it. Well presented Sly you done it again 👍🏽”

“I love your ‘matter of fact’ delivery and the venal chutzpah of a parallel culture of cops and crims that we see through the ‘crack of the door’ that you provide. Have you thought about teaming up with, say, Malcolm Brown to expose the broader tribal connections?”

“Love this podcast. Seriously interesting coverage of true crime from the Melbourne Master, Sly himself. But also some really amusing stuff such as old mate Ladderman and his police tapes. Terrific stuff”

“This would be a five-star rated program if not for the intrusive background music.
Silvester interviews a number of interesting people and sheds light on policing and criminals. Quite fascinating.
Shame about the background ‘music’ - it really detracts from the whole program.”

“As a 13 year old school girl tuning in to sly of the underworld on the radio whilst my dad drove me to school to now - a fully fledged commercial lawyer, John Sylvester you keep my love of true crime alive with these podcasts.”
“I listen to the podcast on my COVID-19 daily walk.
As a 59 year old Melbournian, it’s a great insight on the underworld and a good refresher of the going’s on especially around the turn of the century”
