The Girl in Saskatoon: Who Murdered Alexandra Wiwcharuk?
Episode 158 - Twenty-three-year-old nurse and former beauty queen, Alexandra Wiwrachuk, thought the warm spring night in 1962 would be perfect for a walk down by the river before her midnight shift at Saskatoon’s City Hospital. Alexandra did not show up for work that night, and it was not until thirteen days later that children stumbled upon her broken body in a shallow grave. Someone had savagely beaten the young woman, brutally raped her and then buried her alive, leaving her to die. Nearly sixty years later, no one has ever been brought to justice in Alexandra Wiwcharuk’s murder.

Rachel Bernstein
The Inner Life of a Conspiracist w/ Stephen Ross
Stephen Ross grew up in the small rural town of Brimfield Massachusetts feeling confused about his sexuality and was ultimately ostracized once he came out as gay. In the years that followed he suffered through many traumas including extreme physical abuse, emotional abuse, gaslighting, and manipulation. These experiences left him feeling severely depressed and caused him to feel disenfranchised and scared. Seeking safety and community he was completely open to the influence of anyone who showed him kindness. This vulnerability eventually led him to be lured into right-wing conspiracies by his abusive boyfriend, a follower of such dangerous internet conspiracists as Stephen Crowder and Alex Jones. Stephen shares with Rachel the details of some of the traumatic events that shaped his inner life, his descent down the proverbial rabbit hole, and eventual realizations that led him out of the darkness and towards a path of healing. Before You Go: Rachel explains how the need to feel acceptance from a community can lead to ignoring one's own critical thinking and even morality. She speaks about the work of Eric Fromm the German humanistic philosopher and discusses why his idea of consensual validation is so relevant to our current times.
