Developing The Story: Don Edwards' Battle for Justice

Feb 13, 2020, 01:22 PM
In this episode, I'm speaking with Dan Robson, head of features and a senior writer for The Athletic in Canada.

Dan takes us behind the scenes of his story about former NHL goaltender Don Edwards, and his three-decade battle for justice and peace following the murder of his mother and father.

Edwards, a former all-star, has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. He has struggled with uncertainty, and he has lost so much of what had been planned in retirement.

Robson attends the parole hearing for the man convicted of the murder. And he leads the reader through what happens next, and what lies ahead for a man — and a family — who has already suffered so much.
