Play • 55 min

Welcome to episode five of our 2021 Halloween Season Series! This one promises to scare the living daylights out of you.  In this episode,  Anne Marie talks to fellow history podcaster Craig Baird who tells us the tail of the Valley of the Headless Men. Steeped in lore and legend, this isolated valley is situated in Nahani National Park Reserve along the Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories of Canada. 

Craig is the host of several podcasts, including Canadian History Ehx and From John to Justin.

He loves Canadian history and has ever since he was a child. Craig says "too often our history is not known because we are overshadowed by American, British or world history. Canada has a history that is interesting and deep and it is my goal with my videos and podcast to spread that history."
