Today we’re bringing you something a bit different. It’s a podcast produced by a wonderful team in the UK called Tortoise. Reporter Alexi Mostrous will tell you all about how a Canadian private intelligence practitioner and investigator, set him off on a quest to find out who trolled Amber Heard.

When you hear the name Amber Heard, what comes to mind? Liar? Survivor? Narcissist? Millions of us watched the celebrity trial of the century, Depp v Heard, in 2022. Amber Heard lost and Johnny Depp was vindicated. But what if Amber was actually the victim of an organised trolling campaign? What if the online hate against her was manufactured?

Alexi investigates what happened to Amber and who might have been responsible. It’s a story about how our own thoughts and opinions can be molded without us even realising.

All six episodes of Who Trolled Amber are now available to binge-listen here
