A true crime podcast series has taken an interest in a 50-year-old MMIWG case that happened in The Pas. Canadian True Crime released its three-part podcast on the murder of Helen Betty Osborne last month. Canadian True Crime is an independent podcast that airs two episodes a month. On average, it draws in 250,000 listeners per episode and has had over 50 million downloads in total.
“Canadian True Crime podcast is a scripted anthology series, with each episode written from facts curated mainly from secondary sources like court documents and news archives,” said Canadian True Crime Producer Kristi Lee. “It’s an immersive format that takes listeners through each story from beginning to end and often includes an analysis of media coverage and the impact the crime had on the community.” Lee was drawn to the social injustices towards Canada’s Indigenous population. Canadian True Crime has had previous episodes involving crimes against Indigenous people, and every time Lee works on one, she comes across the racial tension that still divides people on the issues today.
