View Full Version : Rippercast Update

As many of you are aware, Rippercast is on TEMPORARY hiatus. After the host, editor and publisher Jonathon Menges moved to California, he found his time was consumed with new work commitments and priorities which made the scheduling and editing of Rippercast difficult to accommodate.

Two weeks ago, I agreed to take on the duties of editing and recording Rippercast. I am currently learning how to handle the technical aspects of Rippercast ( as such, the production quality might suffer a tad in the next couple of episodes until I get into the swing of things and we thank you for your patience.)

Rippercast is currently looking for Guest Hosts to take the place of Jonathon until such time as his schedule permits him to resume his duties. If you would like to Guest Host a podcast, be a panelist, or would like to suggest a topic, please send me a PM. Hopefully Rippercast will be back up and running by the end of the month, though it will have a reduced schedule. We will post a list of upcoming topics within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for your continued interest.

Hey Ally, all the best with taking over - twould be a tragedy to see Rippercast go belly up!

Some suggestions:

Pirate Jack interviewing Stewart Evans (for pure entertainment value).

Give Ben Holme an hour to talk about anything EXCEPT Hutch. Inquiring minds want to know.

A Neal Shelden/Dan Norder stand-off, mediated by Howard Brown. Now that would be sweet!

A Stride panel with AP Wolf, Fisherman, Perry Mason, and myself.

Strike that...a Stride panel with just me would be more productive.

Don Souden on how awesome it is to be Don Souden.

Pirate Jack on how awesome it is to be Paul Begg.

An All-Groupie panel featuring Ally, Pamela Des Barres and Sweet Connie.

I hope this helps.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Congratulations on your new role, Ally! Not an insubstantial task to agree to take on. We who are new to the whole Ripperology scene-who learn a lot from the existing 'casts-salute you. :beerchug:

Jonathon Menges will be missed. I hope he can perhaps continue to call in & take part? Whenever the next Conference is he deserves a round of applause & foot-stomping from the hoi polloi. Thanks again Jon!

As long as the podcast stays in the control of Americans. That's what really matters.

Hey Tom, long time no see and all that... why should the podcast be controlled by the 'Yankee Dollar'?
You want us all to wear orange jump suits and jump when you crack the electrical charge.
The future is bright, the future is orange.
Not when this monkey is about.

Well, the Mengemeister and Ally are both American. Coincidence? I think not. It's all about the 'Yankee Dollar', AP.

I am now Executive Producer of the Podcast.

I am now in control of all things.

Yours truly,

Welcome news, Tom, is that you do not control alcohol.

Tom,

Don Souden on how awesome it is to be Don Souden.

If it only paid better--a whole lot better.

On a serious note, though, it really is not a humorous subject for Neal Shelden and Norder's other creditors.

Don.

Seriously, I was listening to one of the rippercasts yesterday, ruminating on how refreshing it was to hear the UK & Welsh (and one Canadian) voices outnumber our american ones on a podcast or radio--a nice aural change. The UK voices particularly represent a range I don't often hear on the BBC or at work(where nearly everyone seems to come from either London or Manchester).
I just enjoy accents on the ear-Philly too, Howard. :pleased:

Archaic
09-04-2009, 05:04 AM
Hi, Jenny.

I agree with you, I really enjoy hearing all the different accents.

I was born a California girl, so unfortunately I don't even have an accent... sigh...... :lol:

Best regards, Archaic

PS: Try to get Sam to talk Welsh to you- you'll love it! :)

Re accents, I will never appear on a podcast but if I did, I would speak Unwinese.

Wouldn't it be cool if somebody could come on and give an entire podcast speaking Ubbi Dubbi? (aka Double Dutch)

Rippercast could be a veritable Tower of Babble.

I mean, Bubabble. :scholar:

I think. :scratchchin:

There's a connection, in this little-known poem by Wordswold:

I planted a pack of Unwin's seeds
And all I got was Little Weeds,
I voiced my plaint at the garden shop
But the boss told me to flobb-a-lopp.

Hey, Sam... I just watched 'The Flowerpot Men'.

I watched episode 1, as episode 2 wasn't available.

I'm trying to decide if that was a Cold War experiment in Governmental Mind Control, or a televised acid-trip for children...

But now I understand you much better. :)

Reduced to a parenthetical afterthought. How sad. I either need to post more or return to my Rippercast chair.

Yes, I'm looking forward to the resumption of Rippercast.

Is there a second podcast on the non-canonical murders still planned? I do hope so, as for me, the non C5 are just as interesting...

All the best

Monty,

it would be interesting to hear contributions from people like Tom and Don. I hope they will consider Allys initial post.

To Jonathan's credit I have had a standing invitation from the start, but have been stymied by a raggedy old computer. I am, however, near giddy at the prospect that the situation may soon change.

Don.

Let's hope it does, Don (and Tom). I echo Monty's sentiments.

I agree; I'd love to hear "The Non-Canonical Victims, Part Two."

Thanks, Archaic

Ally
09-07-2009, 03:13 PM
As far as I know, there was actually a Non-can part two taped, but for some reason, it has never been released. Not really sure what the hold up is, but if it's not viable, I'll make sure getting a new one recorded and up is a priority.

Ben
09-07-2009, 03:23 PM
Hi Archaic,

As Ally mentioned, there was a non-canonical #2 recorded in which about four of us participated. As far as I know, it should be up and running once the editing is complete.

All the best,
Ben

Thanks for the sentiments, Monty and Sam. Most appreciated coming from you guys. Like Don, I've had a standing invite from the beginning. But I'm not sure I'd have much to contribute. I'd probably just trip over my own tongue. Plus I need to start publishing again cuz at this point I'm more or less a hasbeen who never was.

Tosh. Whilst we may disagree on some things Jack related, and God knows we have stood toe to toe and slugged it out (with you often coming worse off ;)), doesnt me I dont respect you.

Your Ripper Notes work on Stride and Openshaw letter has established you as stayer. You contribute to the field and contribute well...youre acknowledged in Letters From Hell for Gods sake.

Has been my arse.

Take up the challenge, you have something to say.

Oh is that right? Well, then when I DO a webcast, perhaps we should go toe to toe once again? :)

Your Ripper Notes work on Stride and Openshaw letter has established you as stayer. You contribute to the field and contribute well..

Stop, you're making me blush. And I mean that. Did I write something on Openshaw?


youre acknowledged in Letters From Hell for Gods sake.

Yes, that was Stewart's generous way of offering me encouragement, I'm sure, since I contributed in no way to that work. I'm grateful for that to this day.

Has been my arse.

I have never been near your arse. :1tongue:


Take up the challenge, you have something to say.

I'm sure I'll eventually do a podcast. I really should publish some new stuff first, perhaps of Le Grand. I'm gearing up to buy a new comp and move all my notes over to it and should have some time to start pecking away again. Perhaps we should do a piece together sometime. Maybe on something nobody would expect us to write about.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Aaarrrgg. A stretch, maybe; but, as usual, you make me laugh.

You're too witty to be living in Wales. We could use you over here writing for North American television. Heaven knows, we need the help. We seem to have comedy writers with only half your ability, if you get my drift.
