The Sydney Siege ‘hostage crisis’ occurred in 2014 on December 15th to 16th when a lone gunman, Man Haron Monis, held hostage ten customers and eight employees of a Lindt chocolate café at Martin Place in Sydney, according to official reports.
Police and the media treated the event as a terrorist attack at the time, however three Brisbane researchers – Ethan Nash, John le Bon and Lindsay ‘The Silverfox’ – began to question and breakdown the official narrative live on the Australian Roundtable Podcast, being the only media organisation in the world to do so at the time.
After extensive research on the chain of events in Martin Place, their work significantly examined the official story, including initial discussions on who benefited from the events and media coverage on the day, to more comprehensive work such as conflicting witness testimonies and scientific rebuttals to government claims.
This work, as emerging figures in a growing alternative media network in Australia, was one of the defining moments of the first season of the Australian Roundtable Podcast, with each video receiving thousands of downloads and subsequent coverage.
Below you will find archived over 7 hours of ARP’s coverage of the event, including original podcast content, media contradictions and an official rebuttal to the police narrative embedded for free.
