    the Nova Scotia Rampage - Part 3 - a History of Domestic Violence (with Jane Gerster)

    Nova Scotia, April 18-19, 2020

    Over a period of thirteen hours, a 51 year old denturist carried out Canada’s most deadly act of mass murder.

    Dressed in a police officer’s uniform and driving a replica police cruiser, this murderer would leave a trail of innocent victims and burnt homes in his wake. In total twenty two Nova Scotians lost their lives including a pregnant woman, a RCMP Constable, and many other innocent victims who were unfortunate enough to cross his path.

    In this episode of Nighttime, our topic is the gunman’s history of domestic violence. Our guest is Global News features reporter Jane Gerster.

    What's up with the Pentagon and UFOs? (with MJ Banias)

    What's up with the Pentagon and UFOs? (with MJ Banias)

    This story starts several years ago when a series of videos were leaked from Defense industry insiders. What made the footage so interesting is that it was filmed using highly advanced weapon systems from American fighter jets and it appeared to show some kind of aerial objects displaying flight capabilities far beyond what is known to exist. 

    Given the unofficial leaking of the footage, the video's origins were always accompanied with doubt, speculation, and rumor…  But things are different now.  

    The United states department of defense has recently authenticated, declassified, and officially released these videos and they did so while fully disclosing that they are unable to explain the aerial objects being tracked by their fighter jets.   

    Tonight, on this episode of Nighttime, we are going to be joined by writer and investigative journalist MJ Banias and he is going to tell us exactly what's up with the Pentagon and UFOs.

    the Disappearance of Holly Ellsworth-Clark - Part 3 - Holly Clark and Emma Fillipoff: Tragic Coincidences

    the Disappearance of Holly Ellsworth-Clark - Part 3 - Holly Clark and Emma Fillipoff: Tragic Coincidences

    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 be joined by journalist Tyler Hooper for a discussion centering on the striking similarities between Holly Clark’s story and that of Emma Fillipoff’s.

Excellent research!!!

Love the Nighttime Pod, great stories from a great story teller....so down to earth and love all the details about the history and geographic references....and the hint of an East coast accent...can’t recommend Nighttime Podcast enough....as a Ontario living Nova Scotian I love Jordan’s coverage of local events, definitely a great one to subscribe to!!!

Earnest Approach to Dark Topics

I enjoy this host's earnest and honest approach to the dark topics. He's respectful of the victims but doesn't shy away from the grim realities of the topics (example: the recent Nova Scotia rampage). That episode nailed it and was an excellent source of information within the necessary contexts for understanding it. I will always come back to this podcast for the Canadian content and the intelligent style.
