    Ep. 10 - Down the Hatch

    Ep. 10 - Down the Hatch

    The downtown Eastside of Vancouver, British Columbia is not only considered "Canada's poorest postal code" but is also no stranger to tragedy or crime. The streets contain an unpolished tarnish compared to the rest of the city. Between it's vintage diners and abandoned corner stores, it's peppered with sex workers and drug addicts among the overwhelming homeless population. Unfortunately, there are some who also see this as an opportunity to take advantage of those who are mistakenly considered transient or deemed insignificant by societal standards. One Canadian serial killer would prove this brutal circumstance to be very much true. Known as the "Boozing Barber", Gilbert Paul Jordan is thought to be responsible for at least 10 murders but, maybe because of his unexpected and peculiar method, would only pay the price for one.

    Ep. 9 - Fight or Flight

    Ep. 9 - Fight or Flight

    Quintessential teenager, Adrianne Jessica Jones, was happy and free under the Texas sun. Like any teenage experience, we expect the key elements to usually play a part: high school, hobbies, friends, boys. What we don't expect is a bend in the road, swiftly steering us right into the middle of a story about obsessive desire, a possible tryst and a murder plot. Who knew young love could be so deadly?

    Ep. 8 - Dangers, Toils and Snares

    Ryan Poston, a young attorney at law from Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, is shot to death by his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, in October 2012. Two people, one gun, and left in the aftermath: only one story. Like other similar cases, the final question always begging to be answered is: was it self-defense or cold-blooded murder?

    Ep. 7 - And Baby Makes Three

    A long overdue hello, to you, dear listener. Thank you for sticking with me, and being so patient. The Dark Divide is back, and I've decided to release some smaller episodes in between larger ones that demand more time and research, so you can still get your fix. I hope you enjoy this mini-sode about an innocent Craigslist post that Michelle Wilkins responded to in 2015 for free maternity clothes. A simple task that led to one of the most heinous and savage acts to ever happen in Longmont, Colorado and also, the rest of the country.

    Ep. 6 - Haste and Honor

    On January 1, 2008, Yaser Said carried out the unspeakable as his two teenage daughters would never make it out of his vehicle alive. Later, many will question what they could have done or should have done to prevent such a senseless tragedy. How does one keep their head above water in the throes of fear and power? Where do we go when the ones who have the responsibility to protect us are the very thing we need protection from?

    Ep. 5 - When the Bough Breaks

    Ep. 5 - When the Bough Breaks

    Both the US and Canada would be shaken by the senseless murder of Andrew Bagby in 2001. We like to believe that cases with evidence as straight-forward and clear cut as this begin and end simply in the legal system with the necessary consequences delivered to the perpetrator. However, this case is one of the most convoluted and confusing, covered with injustice and senseless tragedy. It would remain in headlines for nearly a decade, sparking challenge and change for not only the lives involved, but also the legal system itself. It's a remarkable story of how we cannot control what happens to us, but we can choose to decide how it will shape us, finding a purpose for our pain and creating our own hope in the darkest hours.
