Probing into tragedies requires a unique combination of sensitivity and invasiveness. Kate McClymont is a five-time Walkley Award-winning investigative journalist for Sydney Morning Herald. Duncan McNab is a former policeman whose book Getting Away With Murder exposes a spate of unsolved deaths of gay men, and criminal barrister Bill Hosking’s Justice Denied tells the true story behind famous criminal cases. They talk to Candice Fox about how they’ve navigated the realities of being an outsider looking in on tragedy.
