Someone knows something...

Filmmaker David Ridgen hosts a new podcast. Each season will revisit another Canadian cold case. The first case involves the disappearance of 5 year old Adrien McNaughton in 1972.

 In the first few minutes of Someone Knows Something, host David Ridgen talks about the appeal of revisiting cold cases. “We all think we can solve them – it’s natural. We tend to impose order where there’s none so that every puzzle has a solution. We try to resolve chaos,” he says. “We find not the truth but what we want to find.”

The cold case Ridgen is referring to is the focus of CBC’s new podcast, launching March 2. It involves a five-year-old boy, Adrien McNaughton, who disappeared without a trace from Arnprior, Ont., more than 40 years ago.

Ridgen’s meditation on human curiosity is interrupted now and again by interviews with the McNaughton family. By the end of the first episode, listeners are brought to the last place – a fishing spot – Adrien was seen.
