This is Episode 004 of Dark Poutine. Here we present The Halifax Explosion, in honour of the 100th annoversary of the disaster. Prior to the detonation of the first atomic bomb was the largest man made explosion humanity had seen. It devastated Halifax and many residents died, or were severely injured. As well as the loss of life and limb, many were left without adequate shelter from the cruel Nova Scotia winter.
Thanks to Erica and D’Arcy for sharing music in this episode, for sharing Joshua Smith’s song, The Day The City Died. You can find it here: https://joshuasmith.bandcamp.com/
