It's quick, easy and free.Here's a look at this week's show.CONFIRMED GUESTS:TYLER PELKE - Pelke will join me live in studio for an interview you do not want to miss. It has been 17 years since the Manitoba resident suffered through one of the most horrific attacks you will ever hear about - he was bound with rope, sexually assaulted, had his throat slit and then doused with gasoline and set on fire. He somehow managed to survive, while his good friend was killed. Remarkably, Pelke recently made a trip out to Alberta to meet face-to-face with the man who is now serving a life sentence for the shocking attacks. Even more remarkable were the words Pelke uttered to his attacker - "I forgive you". This promises to be one of the more emotional stories you will ever hear.

While she normally walked with her five-year old brother, that day she did not wait for him. She never arrived at home and shortly after the alarm was sounded. What followed was the largest door-to-door search in Edmonton history, but despite the massive effort, no clues whatsoever were unearthed to indicate what had happened to her. Now nearly 24 years later, she has still not been seen or heard from. Elysia Murrell will discuss this tragic case as part of the exclusive "Lost Children" series which is done monthly on "Crime and Punishment".

Julie Crocker, 33, and Paula Menendez, 34, were found slain in Crocker’s home early Monday morning.Later that day, Christopher Little, 35, from whom Crocker was separated after about nine years of marriage, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Police say Menendez’s estranged husband, Toronto radio sportscaster Rick Ralph, was an acquaintance of Crocker’s, but media reports suggest the two were dating.

Krogfoss, president of Communication Line Guard, will discuss several recent high-profile heists where thieves made off with the goods after cutting phone lines. Krogfoss will discuss his product, a steel barrier which will be built around your lines and ensure thieves can't defeat your expensive alarm system.
