Todd A. Johnstone-Wright, director of adventure sport for Saint Michael’s College, appears on this season 2 of the Netflix program Confession Tapes’ Episode titled “Deep Down.” This stemmed out of Todd’s ongoing work on the Angilika Graswald case which centers on a mysterious death involved kayaking on the Hudson River – Graswald was charged with killing her fiancé while they were on a kayaking trip. Todd is one of the world’s most highly certified authorities on kayaking, and so has lent his expertise to the case, including for this and other media reports about it.
