The Murder of Kristin Johnston

11/11/2018
More
For a 911 operator fielding calls from a university city like Halifax, a Friday night is sure to be a mixed bag. Periods of silence are book ended by frantic calls from the evening's darker moments. Those periods of silence become extended as the late night pizza shops serve their last slice and the taxis finish shuttling people home from their foggy evenings. As the sun begins to rise the hectic Friday night becomes a quiet Saturday morning and there is a big difference. As you will hear...

Three Chilling Tales From Haunted Nova Scotia (with Steve Vernon)

10/28/2018
More
Some of my earliest scares occurred late at night, in the days leading up to Halloween, with a flashlight and a book of spooky stories. Individually the stories may span just a few pages, but with each one the authors managed to drag young minds along to places more horrifying than they could have ever imagined. In this Halloween special, Nighttime will again take inspiration from these books and dress itself up as a collection of scary stories. Tonight you will hear three chilling...

When considering the next topic to cover, I turned to the UFOs Above Canada facebook group for recommendations. As I took note of the many great ideas the group members shared, something else that caught my attention. Two people from opposite corners of Canada posted details of their recent UFO sightings. The reports were different in nearly every way, but had one commonality. Each solicited help identifying the anomalous object and requested advice on where next to turn. Immediately this...
