The Nightcap after show episodes are typically only available on the premium feed When one imagines the setting for a story involving experimental weapons, international espionage, unexplained aerial anomalies, and cold war anxieties... they probably aren’t picturing a tranquil island in Newfoundland.

The Disappearance of Kimberly McAndrew

9/5/2019
More
The students who descend on Halifax each year come from far and wide, but despite the depth of their diversity, there is at least one thing they all have in common. It's a dark brooding thing that dwells in the pits of their parent’s stomachs. Luckily, it's easily ignored with the simple thought "that stuff doesn't happen in Halifax" or "my kid is too smart for that". But, as a tragic few have learned, ignoring it is about as effective as covering your eyes to avoid an oncoming...

Glove Guy - 2 - The Dark Side of the Glove

8/26/2019
More
Halifax, NS, is a city with no shortage of tall tales, folklore, and urban legends. The story of the Gloveguy, I dare say, is stranger than all of them. I first heard the story a few years back. Much like many urban legends, a friend of a friend was said to have had an encounter with a man who makes a hobby of offering Halifax's young men rides home late at night, only to reveal his leather glove fetish along the way. I cant explain why, but I immediately dismissed the story as untrue or...

Allan Legere - The Monster of the Miramichi

8/7/2019
More
In all corners of our country, if you ask the right people, you’ll hear stories of ghosts or monsters that at some time in the area’s history briefly made themselves known. This episode will describe one such case. It will feature a community crippled with fear and overcome by a feeling of defenselessness. A community in which it's most vulnerable were preyed upon by a beast too frightening to be dreamt up. Like many of horror literature's greatest villains, by day this monster hid in...

Something chilling is happening here in Canada, and it has the nation looking on with concern. At the time of recording, July 27th 2019, two young men from a small city on Vancouver Island are the subjects of an intense manhunt. Just over a week ago, 19 year old Kam McLeod and his friend, 18 year old Bryer Schmegelsky left their homes in Port Alberni, BC to search for work further west. What they have been up to since is a mystery, but what we do know is that three people have been...

Storming Area 51 (with MJ Banias)

7/23/2019

Something big is happening here on earth. Something with the potential to change life as we know it. Something so relevant that it’d be irresponsible to not cover it on Nighttime, regardless of where it occurs in relation to the Canadian border. What I'm referring to isn't going to be news for listeners of this show, as this is an event that has gripped all of humanity in a state of nervous excitement. On September 20th, at 3am, nearly 2 million people will descend upon a Nevada desert...

The Dark Side of Jury Duty (with Mark Farrant)

7/14/2019
More
A very small number of Nighttime listeners have served on a jury, but many more know someone who has. Regardless which side you fall on, chances are the trial involved was fairly mundane and unremarkable... but that’s not always how it happens. Think of someone you know, perhaps a painfully innocent aunt. What happens when they get assigned to a case involving some of darkest evidence imaginable? how do they get through it? how do they cope? and who picks up the pieces after the verdict is...

In life Holly Bartlett was a conqueror. Born with a condition that would lead to complete vision loss, Holly refused to allow her blindness to prevent her from living life to it's fullest. She had an active social life, a career, an education, and a network of friends and family that looked to her as an inspiration. But, all the good things that were happening in Holly's life came to a screeching halt on a cold night in March of 2010. After spending a night out with friends, celebrating...

2018 Canadian UFO Survey (with Chris Rutkowski)

5/14/2019
More
For those interested in the UFO phenomenon, it’s hard to deny that 2018 was one of the most exciting years in decades. Arguably, it all started with a late 2017 article published in the New York Times that revealed the existence of a 22 million dollar United States Defence Department program, tasked with investigating reports of UFO events. The news surrounding this program, and a few videos of anomalous objects they have researched, seemed to have fanned the coals that have been...

In this episode we will hear of one such story and how someone close to those involved is dealing with it. We will be joined by Ken Jessome, who back in the summer of 1970 lost two of his childhood friends under strange circumstances. The event has been haunting him, and many others who grew up...

Canada's Last Witch Trial - The Story of Tiffany Butch

4/8/2019
More
At it's essence, this story is that of a rivalry between two competition psychics in Small town Ontario. Not unlike many business rivalries this too would quickly boil over and lead to a courtroom... the charges however were probably the last anyone would have expected. A little know, and long antiquated, law that criminalized the practice of witchcraft has sat awkwardly within the Canadian Criminal Code for several hundred years. Charges related to this law were incredible rare but as you...

In 2015, on the eve of Valentine's day, the people of Halifax would learn that they aren’t exempt from the type of nightmares that play out on American news stations.
