Episode 010 has been a tough one for us to get out. This is Mike’s personal story of what happened to him one summer night in 1981 and how one event effected him to this day. He hopes that in the telling of his story, others will feel safe enough to share their own and unburden themseleves of a secret. Thanks to Jami from the MURDERISH podcast for this week’s intro. Jami’s recent episode, A Stranger in my Bedroom, helped us get over the hump to telling this story.

This is Episode 004 of Dark Poutine. Here we present The Halifax Explosion, in honour of the 100th annversary of the disaster. Prior to the detonation of the first atomic bomb was the largest manmade explosion humanity had seen. It devastated Halifax and many residents died, or were severly injured. As well as the loss of life and limb, many were left without adequate shelter from the druel Nova Scotia winter.
