The Lady Vanishes has had 1 million listens

Acast’s Australian podcast phenomenon The Lady Vanishes has had one million listens in just six weeks.
Produced by 7NEWS, The Lady Vanishes focuses on the disappearance of Gold Coast resident Marion Barter, after the much-loved mother, teacher and friend stepped on a plane for an overseas adventure and was never seen again.
Marion, the former wife of Australian soccer great, Johnny Warren, went missing in 1997 and while the circumstances surrounding her disappearance are bizarre, Marion’s daughter, Sally Leydon has never given up hope of finding her.
Podcast executive producer Alison Sandy said: “We’re overwhelmed with the unprecedented success of the podcast. One million listens is a major milestone for us. With each new listener, we’re getting closer to finding out what happened all those years ago, as new evidence continues to come to light”.
The 7NEWS podcast team also comprises investigative journalist and presenter Bryan Seymour, writer and producer Sally Eeles and Sound Design by Marc Wright.
Content Director at Acast, Guy Scott-Wilson, says “Australia’s love affair with investigative journalism is continuing to grow. The Lady Vanishes podcast is more than just true crime, as it sets out to solve a real mystery that’s impacted the lives of real people, and make meaningful change through the power of podcasting.
“It relies on the buzz and excitement around the podcast to move members of the public to provide new evidence and support the investigation. And that’s exactly what The Lady Vanishes has done.”
The Lady Vanishes is available on Acast or any other podcasting service.
