I Wanna Be Like Mike S01E18

July 29th, 2017

War is a dirty job, but someones gotta do it. 

"At the onset of the Second World War he was interned at a Japanese internment camp. In 1944 he escaped, joined the Special Operations Executive, a British commando group, and was engaged in guerrilla warfare in Malaya".1
Eventually life brought him to Canada where he joined the PPCLI and soon after that he joined the war effort in Korea.

For decades the tale of his finest moments were kept quiet, for reasons unknown. Today Patee shares with us the story of Mike Levy; (adopted) Canadian Hero.

Kim & Patee explore the lore and gore behind the Wendigo.

Canadian Horror Story Part 2 S01E15

June 17th, 2017

Part 2 of our in depth look at London, Ontario's Serial Killer problem.

We need to talk about London.
Ontario, that is. Between the years of 1959 and 1985 London Ontario saw the highest number of serial murders per capita in Canada, and possibly even in the (developed) world. So is there any truth to the rumours that London is the Serial Killer Capital of the World? Find out as Patee and Kim begin the lengthy process of uncovering what lead to 29 murders (most unsolved) and a lot of unanswered questions.

Babes in Woodland S01E13

May 20th, 2017

In 1947 a Stanley Park Ranger came across the skeletel remains of two small persons conceled under a coat on the forest floor. After sleeping on it he decided to "call it in", ya know because there's nothing suspecious or out of the ordinary about that.
Follow Patee as she retells the tragic story and find out how infamous child killer Clifford Olsen may have been involved.

Miss Piggy & the Cambodian Cowboys S01E11

April 22nd, 2017

A few things come to mind when we hear of strikes in the news, very rarely is murder one of them. The Giant Mine Massacre is one of Canada's largest mass murders on the books. Let's take a look back at how one company's efforts to line their own pockets may have indirectly (or if you ask some, directly) caused the death of 9 men.
