We have been working tirelessly over the last couple months on Season 2 and I'm so excited to share this with the world, said Erica Vella, Global News, Host of What Happened To? This season really builds on the work that we did on Season 1. For Season 2, not only do we cover major news events but we also catch up with fascinating people who, at one time, captured the attention of the world. We also had many listeners reach out suggesting stories that they wanted to hear more about so we were able curate the perfect content for his season's line up.

Whatever Happened To? Season 1 is currently available and Season 2 will roll out bi-weekly episodes beginning November 25, starting with a fascinating story on Murder Hornets. On this episode, Erica Vella explores more about the Asian giant hornet and how they managed to arrive in Canada in 2019.
