Shortcut: The Chase for Skase

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 


Today's episode is the story of one of Australia's infamous, flamboyant 1980s high fliers, the one and only Christopher Skase.


Christopher Skase was an Australian businessman who gained notoriety in the 1980s and 1990s.


Skase's empire collapsed in the early 1990s due to massive debts and allegations of corporate misconduct. He fled Australia for Spain in 1991 to avoid legal proceedings, leading to a highly publicised extradition battle.


Skase remained in Mallorca, Spain, until his death in 2001, evading attempts by Australian authorities to bring him back to face charges.


Our guests for this episode are Bryce Leske and Alec Renehan from the "Equity Mates" podcast. Click here to find their show on Apple Podcasts, or you can search for them on any other major podcast streaming platform.
