Podcasts I mention In this episode:
ANXIOUS AND AFRAID The Pod is a podcast that covers everything from true crime to the paranormal. We’re interested in ghosts, murders, missing persons, and everything else weird and unexplained.
This most recent summer reading I recommend was:

Peter Woodcock was Canada's youngest serial killer when at the age of seventeen he brutally raped and murdered two boys and a girl between the ages of four and nine. He was never put on trial by "reason of insanity" and instead was confined for 34 years in a criminal psychiatric facility and offered treatment"

On the night of September 15, 1956, seven-year-old Wayne Mallette, was brutally murdered on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. The chief suspect was a "boy on a bicycle" seen pedalling away from the CNE.
