    Halloween Special #2 - "Portlock, Alaska" - with Brian Weed

    Halloween Special #2 - "Portlock, Alaska" - with Brian Weed

    Throughout the 1920, 30’s, and 40’s strange things happened in a small, oceanside town on the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula known as Portlock (Port Chatham). Portlock was a seemingly quiet cannery town. But people started to go missing while others were found seemingly brutally murdered or killed. Rumours began to circulate of a large yeti like creature stalking the woods. There were reports of man-like tracks 18 inches in length. People claimed to see and hear a wailing spirit, wandering the woods. I spoke to Brian Weed to try and find some answers.

    Halloween Special #1 - "Phantom Ships" - with author Shanon Sinn

    Halloween Special #1 - "Phantom Ships" - with author Shanon Sinn

    Halloween is here! I know it’s been awhile since you’ve had some content from this show so I am happy to say, in light of my favourite time of year, I have a couple of one-off episodes to share with you. In this first Halloween special I sat down with friend and author Shanon Sinn to talk about a resident Vancouver Island phantom ship, the Valencia. We also talked about folklore in general and the new book Shanon is working on. I hope you enjoy our conversation. 

    You can purchase Shanon's first book, "The Haunting of Vancouver Island", here.

    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.
    If you know anything about Kris' disappearance, please contact the Yakima County Sheriff's office at 509-574-2500.

Interesting and thoughtful

I’m really enjoying this newer podcast, the host has a journalistic background soTopics are not only well researched but also presented in an engaging way. The host has a soothing voice and obviously cares about the content and takes great pride in his work. This is a great addition to the podcasts focusing on the missing an unexplained.
