This podcast was started in January of 2017, about the unsolved murder of my sister, Theresa Allore, who died on November 3, 1978. The project has grown to include unsolved murders of women in Quebec in the 1970s. Now the podcast is simply about unsolved murders in Quebec, Canada. Most of season 1 is now all blocked. It will be re-posted after the release of the book, Wish You Were Here, scheduled for publication by Penguin Random House on September 22, 2020: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.c ...
 
semi-prose is the books podcast that’s half as serious and twice as smart as your other favourite books podcast. Join Evan, Allie, Kristina, and Max: four semi-professional readers as they explore new Canadian books through their personal histories, stores of pop culture, and readerly curiosities, before the pros – the authors themselves – join the conversation. Because when you’re done the last page, you’ve only really read the half of it.
