Subbies Under Fire

“Subbies Under Fire” is a podcast series investigating sub-contractors in the building industry, and the incredible payment disputes they find themselves in. The stakes are high, and these stories are often harrowing. Our guests have chronicled stories of how construction projects have started out well, but then things start to spiral out of control as millions of dollars go unpaid.

As the stories progress, things get uglier and uglier. The outcomes of these stories have included attempted suicide, broken marriages, and bankruptcy. This is a genuinely shocking podcast series about a world that rarely sees the light of day. Subbies Under Fire is hosted by Anthony Igra and Rob Kaldor and recorded in the studios of Piccolo Podcasts. Please rate and review us on your favourite listening APP.
