Friday night, my body went timbbberrrrrr! pretty early, so I didn't do a post.
We had to get up relatively early to be at our friend Jordan Bonaparte's home for ten, to record the next edition of The Nighttime Podcast. The podcast has been increasing in popularity since its inception a couple of years ago. Jordan has had hundreds of thousands of downloads, rivaling many other Canadian podcasts.
It has moved away from its horror and conspiracy roots more and more toward true crime, much more in my wheelhouse. In 2017, Jordan did a very good three part series about the 1992 McDonald's murders, interviewing author and reporter Phonse Jessome at length.
Jordan decided some time ago to do an edition of the podcast about the 1998 disappearance of Troy Cook. He told me he thought my article in Frank in 2016 was the best of the ones he had read, which was very nice of him to say. He wanted to do a second episode of the podcast about Troy's disappearance and invited me to talk to him about Troy and what happened to him.
As we finished the recording session, Jordan asked if I had anything to add. I just repeated that I would love to talk to Lorraine, Troy's mother, who hasn't spoken to the media since 1999 or so. I would like to talk to Troy's roommate of three weeks, James Taylor. And I thanked Jordan for the opportunity and said something like, "Let's do this again sometime".
Perhaps, depending on listener reaction, I will be back in Jordan's dining room recording another edition of the Nighttime Podcast with him. There are plenty of unsolved murders and missing persons cases we can talk about.
Thanks, Jordan. I had a blast!!
See you guys tomorrow.
