    the Story of Glen Race

    the Story of Glen Race

    For a period of weeks, in May of 2007, it appeared a serial killer may have been targeting Halifax Nova Scotia’s gay community. When a suspect was identified and arrested at the Mexican - USA border, it turned out to be something all together different. To put it plainly, Glen Race thought he was destroying vampires. 

    To help me talk through the story, and to join in the discussion surrounding the many elements to this case, I've invited my good friend and fellow podcaster Kristi Lee (Canadian True Crime) to join me.

    In this episode of Nighttime, we are going to be discussing the story of Glen Race.

    The 1978 Clarenville UFO Event

    The 1978 Clarenville UFO Event

    When Clarenville RCMP Constable Jim Blackwood responded to a report of an unusual object in the sky, he expected it to be the next in a series of recent reports that all resulted in nothing more than a confused citizen describing a vague light.

    When he arrived to the scene he found a group of mystified witnesses viewing the still clearly visible object with binoculars. He knew then that this report was unique.

    The incredible events which unfolded during the roughly two hour long sighting would fuel both an international media whirlwind and a localized UFO craze.  

    In this episode, the amazing details of the 1978 Clarenville, Newfoundland UFO sighting will be told by the now retired Cst. Jim Blackwood.

    the Decline of Tim Horton's (with Corey Mintz)

    the Decline of Tim Horton's (with Corey Mintz)

    Once upon a time, I loved Tim Horton's. I drank their coffee and I ate their fresh baked goods, but those days are gone. The love affair is long over. To put it bluntly, I think they suck now.  What puzzles me, is that it wasn't always this way and that's why I'm left with burning questions...  

    When did they lose their way, why did they lose their way, and will they ever get back the magic they used to have? 

    It wasn't until I happened upon a piece of investigative journalism in a MacLean's magazine that the full picture of this betrayal became apparent.  The piece was titled "How Tim Horton's lost it's way" and as I read it the veil of marketing that had obscured the slow decline of Tim Horton’s was forcefully pulled away and Canada's dirty secret was exposed.   

    Some of the points raised in that article will be discussed and expanded upon in this episode as in this episode, I'm joined by author and journalist Corey Mintz. 

    Our topic is the DECLINE of Tim Hortons.

    the Disappearance of Holly Ellsworth Clark - Part 4 - Holly Clark 1992 - 2020

    the Disappearance of Holly Ellsworth Clark - Part 4 - Holly Clark 1992 - 2020

    At the time of her disappearance, 27 year old Holly Clark was pursuing her dream to be a professional musician in Hamilton, Ontario. However suddenly, and with little warning, she seemed to find herself on the brink of crisis. 

    On the morning of January 10th, 2020 Holly phoned her parents in Calgary to request help returning home. During the call Holly would share the frightening, yet vague, details of a traumatic experience that led her to spending the prior night running for her life from either a real or imagined threat. 

    It was obvious she needed help but shortly before her father arrived, she walked out of her apartment and into the cold air and pouring rain. 

    In this episode of Nighttime we will again be joined by her father Dave and employer Elle to discuss the heartbreaking update to this case.

Review

I love that this show explores the fringes, the host’s goofy love of it all, the curiosity and Canadian-ness. Just, please, no more UFO stuff.

Low key cured my insomnia

So I’m a bad insomniac, and found podcasts help me sleep, my favourite is true crime but unfortunately listening to it before bed gives me weird murdery dreams. Then one of the old Sasquatch episodes popped up... I now have a playlist of all the paranormal, UFO, or generally weird episodes that I use in rotation! I’m always out before the episode ends!
