Amherst, Nova Scotia, 1981

Neighbours of Sadie Rogers became concerned for the 80 year old women after not seeing her, or any activity in her home, for over a week. When police respond to a request to check up on Sadie they would enter her home and be met with Amherst's most notorious murder case.

The Toronto Van Attack

Although Canada is no stranger to murder, madness and mayhem, we have been very fortunate to have largely avoided the type of mass murders and shootings that have become common fixtures in other countries with similar values and cultures to our own.

Sadly, just days prior to recording this episode Younge Street in Downtown Toronto was the setting of an event that many Canadians take comfort in thinking could never happen here.

In this episode, I'll be joined by my best friend Scott to discuss the April 2018 Toronto Van Attack. Our discussion includes the event, the arrest, what is known of the man driving the van, his rumored ideological motivation, and sadly... we will discuss the innocent people killed during this horrible event.

The Story of Rohinie Bisesar

coverart template.jpg

Toronto, Ontario. December 2015.

In the middle of the day, and within the aisles of Shoppers Drug mart, an unprovoked random stabbing leaves Rosemary Junor clinging to life.

In the days after the attack, the city became captivated by the manhunt for the beautiful, well dressed women, security cameras captured fleeing the store while the victim screamed for her life.

When the suspect is apprehended the story she told about nanotechnology and mind control would cement this case, and the name Rohinie Bisesar, among Canada's most bizarre crimes.

In this episode, we are joined by investigative journalist Raizel Robin (author of 'What happened to Rohinie Bisesar') who helps share the bizarre story of Rohinie Bisesar and the unprovoked murder she is accused of.

Haunted Halifax - 2 - Black Rock Beach (with Steve Vernon)

Halifax's Black Rock Beach is home to many dog walkers, bike riders, and picnic enthusiasts, but the site's history is far darker then those casually strolling through may realize. 

A rock outcropping on Black Rock Beach was the site of one of Halifax's public gallows. Not only were many executed on the site, but their lifeless bodies were left hanging to serve as warning to incoming sailors. 

In this episode, I am again joined by past Nighttime guest and local horror storyteller Steve Vernon who shares his story The Piecemeal Ghost of Black Rock Beach

Emma Fillipoff - 7 - the Girl in the Photo

We’ve all heard it said that a picture is worth a thousand words. 

In this episode, the power of a photograph will be put on full display. 

Our story begins when a photographer points his camera in the right direction at the right moment in time and by chance alone, captures an image that has set off a roller coaster ride of hope and despair.

Although the photograph may appear typical, it's story would change dramatically when it becomes suspected that the photograph includes Emma Fillipoff, captured by chance 2 years after she was last seen.

On Sept 22 I was a panelist in Atlantic Canada's largest comic book/sci fi convention. The panel was called 'Podcasting 101' and was planned to be a q and a session with developed podcasters, and attended by those planning to start, or recently began podcasting. 

The panel included myself, Corey from Pete's Paranormal Chronicles, Taylor from Sickboy, and Joel from Citadel Cafe. 

Chris Rutkowski and the Canadian UFO Survey

Chris Rutkowski's involvement in the Canadian UFO phenomenon runs so deep many refer to him simply as "the Canadian UFO guy". During his 40+ years of UFO related research, he has authored many books and appeared as an subject expert in countless television and documentary specials, including Unsolved Mysteries. 

What makes his contribution so unique, is that rather than focusing specifically on individual cases he instead uses the many connections he has made to compile data on all UFO reports made in Canada. 

Since 1989, he has analyzed this data and released his finding in an annual report titled the "Canadian UFO Survey". 

To anyone who questions the UFO activity above Canada, Chris Rutkowski is in a great position to tell you what appears to be happening above us.
