Rebecca Lavoie, host of Crime Writers On..., speaks with four distinguished podcasters who work with true crime: Justin Ling, host of Uncover: The Village, Connie Walker, host of Missing & Murdered, Natalie Jablonski, producer on In The Dark, and Amber Hunt, host of Accused. They break down the ethics behind true crime podcasts, what good podcasts should work to achieve, and what to take into consideration when dealing with stories that affect real lives. This bonus episode was recorded in front of a live audience at Podcast Movement.
Host David Ridgen joins victims' family members as they investigate cold cases, tracking down leads, speaking to suspects and searching for answers. In Season 7 of Someone Knows Something, Ridgen and investigative journalist Amanda Robb dig into the 1998 murder of her uncle, a New York doctor killed for performing abortions. They uncover a network of anti-abortion movements linked to violence in North America and Europe. Twenty years later, with debates about reproductive rights heating up in the U.S., could more violence be on the horizon? More episodes are available at hyperurl.co/sks
Behind every catfish, there’s the bait. Who is Janessa Brazil? Stolen images of an adult entertainment star are being used to con victims out of thousands of dollars, breaking hearts in the process. Journalist Hannah Ajala embarks on a quest to find Janessa, in this 8-part true crime series. And who is responsible for catfishing scams? Produced for the BBC World Service and CBC Podcasts by Antica Productions and Telltale Industries. More episodes are available at: https://link.chtbl.com/aEI-Z336
Over the past few months, CBC documentarian Josh Bloch has been investigating NXIVM, a self-help group led by Keith Raniere. In this season of Uncover, we take you into NXIVM, and reveal how Raniere won the endorsement of actors, politicians and even a visit from the Dalai Lama.
Jennifer Kobelt — Sarah Edmondson's former assistant in NXIVM — tells her story of joining NXIVM at a moment of crisis in her life and being involved in the group's so-called "fright study."
Sarah faces criticism about her role in NXIVM and tries to come to terms with the 12 years she spent as a high-level member of the group.
Josh speaks to one of Keith Raniere's lawyers, Marc Agnifilo, and hears a different point of view on NXIVM and DOS.
Sarah and her husband try to escape NXIVM and take it down while warning others who are still inside.
What happens when you leave NXIVM? Those who have left or spoken out reveal the price they paid.
Those who knew Keith Raniere intimately reveal his early life, how he started NXIVM and ended up being accused by the FBI of running a criminal enterprise.
Sarah takes us inside her journey with NXIVM, from signing up for a personal growth workshop to becoming a star recruiter for the group she now calls a cult.
Uncover: Escaping NXIVM - Episode 1. Sarah Edmondson is a high-level member of a self-help group called NXIVM, but an invitation to join a secret women's group called DOS leads her to do something she later regrets.
Jennifer Kobelt - Sarah Edmondson's former assistant in NXIVM - tells her story of joining NXIVM at a moment of crisis in her life and being involved in the group's so-called "fright study."

Uncover hosts Josh Bloch and Ian Hanomansing discuss the making of Season 1 and reveal what's in store for Season 2.
In this update to season one, Josh Bloch sits down with Jayme Poisson, host of CBC's daily news podcast Front Burner, to unpack a number of significant developments in the case against NXIVM members. The full season of Escaping NXIVM is available in the Uncover podcast feed.
The team behind season one of Uncover: Escaping NXIVM takes us inside the trial of NXIVM co-founder Keith Raniere and speaks with former member of the group Sarah Edmondson about her thoughts on the trial.
In a U.S. federal courtroom Tuesday, Keith Raniere was sentenced to 120 years—having been convicted of a slew of crimes related to his alleged sex cult NXIVM. During the trial and sentencing, victims told of how the self-professed empowerment "vanguard" had turned some of his followers into sex slaves and branded them with his initials. Front Burner's Jayme Poisson discusses with Uncover: NXIVM host Josh Bloch.
This season, co-hosts Ian Hanomansing and Johanna Wagstaffe investigate one of the largest unsolved mass murders on Canadian soil. A bomb exploded on Canadian Pacific Flight 21 July 8, 1965, killing all 52 people aboard - and yet no charges were laid. Uncover explores what happened that night, how it affects those left behind, and the unanswered question: Who put that bomb on the plane? Note: mayday call is a reenactment
Ian and Jo weigh all the evidence, and Didi returns a ring that went missing on July 8, 1965.
Medical records show one suspect had a "deep madness towards the world," while confidential documents rule out another theory.

You want my sympathy? it's on the dictionary between "shit" and "syphilis" I've never heard more melodrama by someone who walked headlong into some bullshit, knowing it was some bullshit almost from the jump--and paid thousands to do it.

Great, another podcast that could've been just two episodes. Investigative podcasts don't need long storytelling. Start with the facts, instead of misleading the listeners with suspense.

The sister-in-law refusing to answer questions, is unacceptable. Questions people have BECAUSE of what she's said. 🤦🏻‍♀️

in 6th grade our teacher read us The Crucible to teach us the dangers of mass hysteria, group think, and the human attraction to fantastical fanaticism. I greatly appreciate that.

Stopping before my head explodes. Thankfully Uncover has plenty of other seasons to choose from.

Yawn! Whinge whinge no point trying, no one understands, no one can ever help me so what's the point. Yes, a therapist can't alter your physical appearance but they can help you find another way to value yourself, they can help you learn that your happiness doesn't need to come from external places, that being single or not in a relationship isn't the end of the world. It's possible to think for yourself, you don't need to buy into the superficial "beauty is all" mindset. Ridiculous first world problems!!

So true, what kind of school is built with a cemetery? 167 kids and counting, such a tragedy, an avoidable government sponsored tragedy. Uplifting to hear the children joyfully chanting and dancing at the end of their school week. Great to hear them claiming back their culture.

Fantastic podcast, completely heart breaking story but I'm glad to hear these huge ongoing generational abuses finally being exposed. Ignoring these stories solves nothing and just makes it easier for predators to continue their abuse. I find it infuriating but sadly unsurprising to hear that even after being found guilty in court these criminals are protected and cared for by the religious institutions they represent. The utter hypocrisy of providing care & comfort to abusers while attempting to deny the evidence of dozens of victims in order to avoid responsibility and/or compensation is revolting. I really wish this was the last time this type of story would be uncovered but I'm positive it won't be. Sad.

It’s the content, not the voice. Try doing your own voice recording and see if you at happy with how you sound. Are you too fast? Too slow? Are you articulating your words clearly? Harder to do than you might think. Have you done any public speaking?

What happened to Joan could happen to absolutely anyone. If people of all walks of life remembered that, maybe we could all be kinder to people like Joan. “There but for the grace of God go I”.

I just love that we were given this very personal insight into Joan’s intellect, sensitivity and identity. Thank you.

Each season's episodes are backwards, making it frustrating to listen to in order. I just know that I will end up accidentally listening to the last episode first at some point... lol.

Power without oversight is what allows Police to fail this drastically and to not have to answer why they failed. Hiding behind active investigation response is b.s.

I like his voice. if there's one thing I can't stand, it's yappy, shrill podcast hosts. His narration is effective and easy to follow. And it sounds personal, less like a reporter. A nice change from the stereotypical podcast person.

Man definitely got a laugh from the beginning I remember one time I had to do sort of the same thing for my parents when we went to Montreal. XD

I don't understand why these politicians make it illegal for Johns to purchase sex. aren't they criminalizing their own actions? the lady said that many politicians pay for sex work, so aren't these politicians acting against their own interests?

"It's kind of a cool story- when people tell their stories of something cool happening, I'm like 'check this out'" .. the fact she made up a story that in turn convicted an innocent man and had him put in prison for 20+ years, that's not a "cool story" anyone should nonchalantly be talking about.
