No Gangsters in Paradise
- By: Mahmood Fazal
- Length: 5 hrs and 35 mins
- Original Recording
At the turn of the millennium, Western Sydney was a terrifying gangland. At the heart of the frenzy was the Darwiche-Razzak family conflict – a Romeo-and-Juliet style tragedy complicated by honour codes, politics and drive-by shootings. Journalist Mahmood Fazal draws on his own experiences as a gang member to tell the inside story of Sydney’s Lebanese gang wars, to pinpoint why young Muslims just like him commit their lives to violence.
A fantastic podcast with some minor bias flaws

I would recommend giving this a listen even if you're not into crime podcast/audiobooks. It's a very well put together piece. Mahmood Fazal does a wonderful job of giving an introspective outlook on the hardships faced by young Muslim men growing up in the suburbs of Australia.
