Podcasts I mention In this episode:
This most recent summer reading I recommend was:
Nate Hendley - The Boy on the Bicycle: A Forgotten Case of Wrongful Conviction
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 pedaling away from the CNE.
I post those on Instagram and Twitter each Wednesday, if you are looking for some
Canadian true crime books this summer.
