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.

In Episode 007, we head off to Mike’s hometown, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and in particular the nieghbourhood where he grew up. Whenever Mike goes home to Bridgewater he always makes a visit to the place where Karissa Boudreau’s body was found down the bank near the water just on the border between the town and Conquerall Bank in 2009. Karissa’s mother, Penny Boudreau, murdered her 12-year-old daughter then hid her body and reported the youngster missing. After that Penny made seeming emotional pleas for Karissa’s safe return in the media. When the truth came out the town was mortified at the cold depravity of Penny’s acts, motivated, she claimed, by the desire to keep a boyfriend.
