Canadien host, David Ridgen narrates CBC Radio’s heart wrenching podcast, Someone Knows Something. As a mom, we’re not going to lie––some of the subject matter and audio from grieving parents is down right difficult to listen to. But the work Ridgen does to help bring unsolved crimes to resolution is so important that we find ourselves listening anyways. Stay tuned for Season 5 to air in the next month.
If you are as completely unaware of the horror of the Sixties Scoop, in which indigenous Canadian children were apprehended by child welfare authorities like I was, then you need to listen to CBC Radio’s Missing & Murdered: Finding Cleo.

If you follow the news, you may be familiar with the group NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”), it’s leader Keith Raneire and famous actress member from Smallville, Allison Mack. CBC Radio investigates the organization with plenty of interviews from high-level former member Sarah Edmondson, and discusses what experts now say is a dangerous cult in Uncover: Escaping NXIVM.
