    The Future of Nostalgia - The Murder of Anita Robert / WKT4 #6

    The Future of Nostalgia - The Murder of Anita Robert / WKT4 #6

    The 1949 murder of Anita Robert at the hands of Montreal Canadians hockey player Tony Demers.

    "There was nothing heroic or tragic about Tony Demers. He didn't have a character flaw. He consistently abused his privilege. Over a period of years Tony Demers verbally and physically abused Anita Robert, and then he killed her. When you begin to chisel at what's past-preserved its bound to make some people uncomfortable."

    The past has become much more unpredictable than the future.

Beautiful ode to his murdered sister (her case is unsolved)

This is a five star indie podcast crafted with such love and dignity; it is an absolute labor of both the love and the deepest pain from the brother of a sister whose young life was robbed from her in the brightness of her youth by the selfish and cruel act of one perp who treated Theresa like an animal, or rather a doll, to violate and discard. The perp has never been caught, and the far-reaching ripples from his violent act decades ago surge through the lives of thousands in the 21st century — friends lost and new friends never made, beautiful children never born to a woman who would have adored them, husbands never married, grandchildren never cherished and never able to cherish in return, Christmases lost in silent reveries as one chair forever remains empty at the dinner table, dresses and dances and joyfully earned degrees and great accomplishments — proud smiles and sumptuous academic robes — never materialized. Your sister DESERVES JUSTICE!!!

Dear John: I think I’ve heard just about every true crime podcast once (at least one full episode), and my top faves tend to feature the experts like Paul Holes (“Murder Squad”) but nothing is as important or as moving as a family member like yourself challenging the powers that be to finally, at very long last, find *some* justice for your loved one. See Bill of the Colonial Parkway case, also see the young yet ferocious Sarah Tunney as she has taken on the burden of her missing sister’s case on her young and incredibly brave soldiers. Reach out for that community — you will find it, and the loneliness might ache just a bit less. Just my thoughts...

Your sister is all of us — i was her in her youthful excitement as life started to begin for her. Also you write beautifully, and as a literature professor I don’t bestow such honors lightly. Just another thought, have you perhaps contacted the Dark Poutine gentlemen, or Mr. Bonaparte of the Nighttime podcast? They are all Canadians, and I think you men could offer e great deal to each other as you all have different strengths, and I would LOVE if You should team up with the Dark Poutine guys occasionally! Your podcast is fascinating.

I wanted to post quickly as I just listened to your latest episode. I am a medievalist by training (Ph. D., university professor, I work on the English late Middle Ages and the Renaissance). “Nostalgia” thrived in the Middle Ages as well as in “modernity.” For example the medievals always thought of the Arthurian court (or the Otherworld) as located in some other “better” time and space.

Top-notch podcast for discerning listeners

Just getting started, already fascinated and impressed. John Allore is so thoughtful and intelligent (and has a great voice to listen to). I appreciate the serious approach, no chit-chat or jokes. The stories are interesting.

I can’t Do it

I tried but the way the host speaks is too distracting. At one point there was music at the same time he was giving details about the case and I couldn’t hear. I like the stories but not the way they’re being told. It’s unfortunate because I think I would have been a binger if it was narrated in a different style. Good luck
