The Spaghetti Bandit is a 10-chapter true crime wilderness podcast series, originally created for parents to enjoy with your kids. Since its creation in the summer of 2017, the Spaghetti Bandit has appealed to all ages. Told in a classic, suspenseful, serial style by acclaimed broadcaster and author Grant Lawrence, the Spaghetti Bandit is the true story of a man who eluded capture for over a year, all the while squatting in cabins and sacred First Nations burial caves. He stole to survive, and eluded capture like a phantom.
