013 – Babes in the Woods – Stanley Park


Episode 013: In this episode we tackle a popular unsolved case here in the Lower Mainland of BC. In 1953 two skeletons were found in Vancouver’s beautiful Stanley Park. More than 65 years later, the murders of what turned out to be two children remain unsolved. Bonus: Scott does a hacky job of profiling a murderer

009 – Acid Al and Hollywood Hospital

This is a weird one. I’m not sorry. We needed a break from the murder.

In Episode 009, we ask you to take a trip with us to Hollywood Hospital in New Westminster, BC, to meet Acid Al Hubbard the Johnny Appleseed of LSD who turned on Timothy Leary and facilitated psychedelic experiences for everyone, from philosophers and religious leaders, every day folks who were struglling in their lives, to musicians and actors. Cary Grant had many experiences with Acid Al.

The Walrus was Paul. Goo goo ga joob.

More crime next time.
