Where Is George Gibney? is a ten-part investigative series centred on the survivors of sexual abuse by George Gibney, Irish Olympic swimming coach in the eighties and nineties. The podcast became one of the most impactful pieces of journalism of the past year; many new survivors came forward to tell their story, a fresh Garda investigation into the case was launched, and the podcast was downloaded over 2 million times in 160 countries worldwide.
The series has since achieved global critical acclaim winning a Banff World Media Award in Canada, a Webby Award in the US, a British Podcast Award in the UK, the overall prize at the Justice Media Awards in Ireland and widespread international coverage in the likes of the New York Times and The Guardian.
The podcast’s presenter, co-producer and co-writer, Mark Horgan will discuss the making of the BBC/Second Captains series for the first time since its completion with the editor of The Journal, Sinéad O’Carroll.
