Episode 149: William Avery (Billy) Bishop was born in Owen Sound, Ontario, on February 8, 1894. When the First World War broke out, as with many young men of his day, Billy was off to Europe to do his part. By the end of the war, Bishop claimed he had survived more than 170 air battles and said he had shot down seventy-two German aircraft. This number left Bishop only three behind René Fonck of France and eight behind The Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, who had 80 kills. These numbers made Bishop the top Canadian and British Empire flying ace of the war and Canada’s most storied veterans. But Billy’s story does come with some controversy.
Episode 147: Canada has a long history of folks who have attempted to communicate with the dead – a practice is known as Spiritualism. Some of these have claimed that they can connect directly with those on the other side. Here we will give a bit of history, tell some of their stories and give a how-to primer for entertainment purposes only.
We do not recommend, dear listeners, that you make attempts to commune with the beyond using the methods we will speak about later. If you do so and incur negative consequences, we bear no responsibility for your decision to proceed.
