This is your podcaster Lisa here and I’ve been a storyteller for as long as I can remember. Want to hear stories about the people and events that you normally wouldn't hear about? 

Then make sure to support our podcast, Escaping Bangkok. You'll get access to exclusive content, photos, and information that you won't find anywhere else.

Welcome to your private club for behind the scenes and exclusive content. You can find it here.

It’s the photos, information and background we want to keep to our inner circle. It’s where you can have direct access to me.

There is only one rule here - no trafficking!

This story has been percolating inside my brain since 1996 when I first heard about Lisa Marie Smith.

I remember the story flashing up on my terminal in the Newcastle Herald newsroom. It stopped me in my tracks. 

So I leaned across the desk and said to my colleague: “check this story out. It’s absolutely incredible.”

Moreover, I lived in Bali in 2014-15, and watched a lot of Banged Up Abroad and Cesar Milan (but that’s another story).

Australian drug courier Schapelle Corby was released from Kerobokan Prison at the same time. It was a media circus, and I couldn’t get enough of it. 

When it comes to podcastingI come up with new series ideas all the time.  Can’t stop; won’t stop.

This (see below) is a photo of me when I was a trainee reporter back in 1788.

This is me today.
