    NEW PODCAST - True to the Story: The Interpreters - A Trailer

    NEW PODCAST - True to the Story: The Interpreters - A Trailer

    Hello listeners of The Missing and Unexplained Podcast! I have a new podcast titled "True to the Story". Don't worry! The Missing and Unexplained Podcast is not going anywhere. In fact, I am currently doing research for season 3 which I am hoping to release later this year. True to the Story is just another vehicle for me to tell stories not entirely linked to missing persons or crime. You can subscribe to True to the Story where you get your podcasts, including iTunes. 

    True to the Story is a new podcast dedicated to long-form storytelling, with each season telling a true narrative. In this first series I look at the war in Afghanistan and the interpreters who served alongside the Canadian Armed Forces. 
    From 2001-2014, over the course of 14 years, more than 40, 000 Canadian soldiers participated in the longest war in Canadian history. Now in 2021 many of these Canadian Afghan war vets are fighting a different fight: Their fighting to get these same interpreters who helped them in Afghanistan to safety in Canada. This is the story of these interpreters, the crucial role they played in helping the Canadian Armed Forces, and their ultimate journey to try and seek shelter in Canada...

    Episode 1 will be coming in the following weeks. You can check the social media pages below for regular updates:

    Kris "Sherpa" Fowler - Episode 3 - Needle in a Haystack

    Kris "Sherpa" Fowler - Episode 3 - Needle in a Haystack

    With the storm of the decade headed towards the Pacific Northwest and Washington State, Kris and other hikers hesitated on whether to continue hiking the PCT. Ultimately, Kris was determined to hike Washington state in its entirety. After re-supplying in Packwood, on October 12, 2016, Kris started out on the trail near the White Pass trailhead and seemingly vanished into the woods. 

    Thank you to Pickles, Sally, David, and Aaron who chatted with me for this episode.

    Season 2 Trailer - The Disappearance of Kris "Sherpa" Fowler

    Season 2 Trailer - The Disappearance of Kris "Sherpa" Fowler

    On Mother’s Day, May 8, 2016, 34-year-old Kris Fowler set out the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,653 mile hike stretching from Mexico to Canada, all through the west coast of the United States. But on October 12, with less than 400 miles to go on the trail, Kris, who had stopped in Packwood Washington for supplies, set off to resume the PCT near White Pass in the Cascade mountain range. Kris was hoping to get ahead of a brewing storm, one that people would later claim was the biggest Washington State had experienced in decades.  As other hikers left the trail to wait out the inclement weather, Kris, in his sandals, set off into the dense Washington wilderness and seemingly vanished into the thick wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.
