    the Story of Chickie MacPhee - 2 - My Friend Chick (with Dorothy)

    the Story of Chickie MacPhee - 2 - My Friend Chick (with Dorothy)

    For a period of time in the late 1980s, Cape Breton’s Chickie Macphee became one of his island’s most famous and most beloved residents. His notoriety didn’t begin with any great feat, show of skill, or significant act of generosity. Chickie Macphee was just a regular Cape Bretoner with a bit of a drinking problem and a love for Karaoke.

    In this episode, we will explore his unique legacy.

    Our guest, Chickie Macphee's close friend Dorothy, will share her memories of her friend Chick.

    the Nova Scotia Rampage - Part 6 - Waking up to Tragedy

    the Nova Scotia Rampage - Part 6 - Waking up to Tragedy

    In this episode, we will continue to explore this tragic events that form the Nova Scotia Shooting and Arson Rampage. 

    Our guest is a resident of Portapique who chance provided a unique perspective to discuss this case.

    He was there before the killing started as he spent the evening having supper with his neighbors Jamie and Greg Blair, just hours before they were killed, and then after the shooting stopped, he surveyed his neighborhood in his truck only to be ordered back to his home by first responders... But, even after returning home he found himself pulled into the center of the story when the gunman's shoeless and distraught girlfriend appeared on his door step asking for help.

    His story will certainly help fill in some blanks.

    Tonight, in this episode of Nighttime, we are going to be joined by Portapique resident Leon Joudrey.

    A Collection of Stories from Haunted Canada

    A Collection of Stories from Haunted Canada

    In my opinion, Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year.

    For a few weeks in October, even your grandmothers favorite drug store is selling Skull shaped coffee mugs and blood splattered napkins. What's not to love about that?

    With the world temporarily embracing horror and darkness I decided to do the same here at Nighttime and fortunately, there are many spooky listeners of this show. It's to them I turn to tonight.

    So pour a drink, dim the lights, and get cozy.

    Tonight, in this Nighttime Halloween special, we are going to hear from a collection of Nighttime listeners who will share their encounters with THE BEYOND.

    Stories


    James’ encounter with a spirit at the Margaree River


    Kristin’s visit from a deceased innkeeper in Ontario


    Kristi Lee’s haunting in Brisbane


    Nick’s UFO sighting in PEI


    Lisa’s supernatural pet sighting


    Steven’s visit from god know’s what
    Keith's Old Lady/poltergeist

    A Walk Amongst the Dead in Halifax

    A Walk Amongst the Dead in Halifax

    I've always found Cemeteries a calming and peaceful place but not everyone is comfortable roaming their twisted paths and especially so under moonlight. If that describes you, you may find this episode a bit uncomfortable at first as roaming around a graveyard is exactly what we are going to do. But, don’t be scared off just yet, I suspect this walk amongst the dead may change the way you view the boneyard.

    I've called upon Craig Ferguson, a local man who spends a considerable time amongst the dead, to take the lead. He produces a unique project that merges art, journalism, and story Telling called Dead in Halifax. His work starts with a headstone catching his eye and leads to a fact finding mission into the life and dead of the person buried in the ground below. It's like a modern history lesson for goths.

    In this episode of Nighttime, I'll be meeting with Craig Ferguson at the gates of the Camp Hill Cemetery in Halifax and together we are going to go for a walk amongst the Dead in Halifax.

    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.
