On Sept. 14, CBC released ‘GIANT - MURDER UNDERGROUND’, a 7-episode podcast series hosted by Rachel Zelniker. ‘Giant’ revisits the 1992 Labour Dispute at the Giant Gold Mine in Yellowknife that pitted its union against the mine’s new president. On September 18, 1992, nine workers crossed the Giant picket line. Minutes later all were killed in a horrific explosion. The fallout was a city divided, and one of the most labour-intensive murder investigations the RCMP has ever seen.
Thirty years later, ‘Giant’ tells this complex story through the voices of those who lived it, from top police investigators and critical union members to anguished victims, and murder suspects-many of whom have never spoken publicly before.
The first three episodes of ‘GIANT - MURDER UNDERGROUND’ are available now on CBC Listen and everywhere podcasts are available. The next four episodes will be released on September 21, 2022. Listen for free on CBC Listen (available as a free app for iOS and Android devices) and online at cbc.ca/listen.
