Only found the rippercasts a couple of days ago...absolutely fascinating, ive downloaded most of them The good thing about them is, you do not really have to listen in any particular order, although i did have to look up a bit of the basic history of the murders, and can see why there is such a miasma of didputed fact, suspects, letters, eye witness testimony....its like trying to nail fog to a wall.
I tend to listen to the downloads at night in bed (its the only time i seem to be able to find time), this can lead to one falling asleep and waking up in the mistaken belief that Tumblety drown Druitt in the Thames after cutting off his arms and legs and hiding them in Kominsky's leather apron.....so i have to hit the rewind button at 3am and start again!
But please keep them coming and i'll try and keep pace
It always makes for an interesting listen when even the experts in the field seem to disagree on the vital points, it also shows what an enthralling enigma that Autumn in 1888 in Londons East End was....... and still is

Guys,

I have just spent the majority of this week listening to these podcasts.

I must say Ive enjoyed everyone. Many thanks to Jon for all his work, and all who have contributed.

No fancy thrills, as you tend to get with documentaries, just straightforward plain discussion. As valuble as any work often bought up as 'must reads'.

I look forward to more.

Monty

Default Thanks for this site and the GREAT podcasts

Hi all,
I am new here and wanted to thank whomever was responsible for this excellent site and most immediately these amazing broadcasts. I have been devouring them ever since I found them, and it's all so fascinating.
Many thanks again for such a great service..
(BTW, I am a veteran newbie of the Zodiac Killer board but this interests me much more at the moment. My screen name, which always seems to trigger questions, is actually that of an early patron of an American photographer Walker Evans, an interest of mine since I am a curator of photographs in NYC. Just liked the name and copped it!)

I second that. The Podcasts are GREAT. Jonathan does a great job as well as the regulars: Chris Scott, Howard Brown, Mike Covell, Robert Mclaughlin, John Bennett, Ally Rider, Gareth Williams and several others. Everyone is very professional, has a great sense of humor and keeps the discussion at a personable level (no personal attacks etc...). Just great discussion!

Am I the only one that noticed but did Jonathan move west from Topeka to San Diego accross the continent late last year?

Thanks for the compliments.

I did move to San Diego.

We'll be recording an episode this coming Sunday.

Stay Tuned,

Hello all, new to the site and the details of the Whitechapel Murders, so dont expect many contributions from me as most of my time will be spent reading and diving head first into this fascinating case.

Would just like to say a massive thank you to Jonathan and the rest of the guys involved with these wonderful podcasts. Discovered last week, I have already spent many hours downloading and listening to as many episodes as possible. Although Im completely new to the whitechapel murders and the details of what we know as Jack the Ripper, alot of what is being discussed went over the top of my head, but still had me gripped and with more reading Im getting there.

Always been interested in the JTR case, the murders and the unsolved mystery but as a kid then teenager thats where it stopped. I never gave any more thought or looked into the case and was happy with the thought of some victorian guy with nice hat and coat ripping his way through the east end never to be caught but after seeing one of your podcasts on itunes last week when looking for something to listen to history based in bed, its changed my interest and has became a great find.

Apologies for going on a bit but once again a thank you for the podcasts!

Default Problem downloading six of the episodes

Hi Jonathan

Firstly, a huge thank you for organising these rich insights into the theories and opinions of the most knowledgeable writers and researchers. I came to the podcasts somewhat late but am enjoying them immensely. The contributers' professional and tolerant tones have become compulsive listening for me.

I have been downloading and saving the podcast archives to my laptop so I can sync them with my ipod and this works well. However I've hit a small snag regarding just 6 of the episodes. I right click the link on the relevant episodes and choose the save option. The download starts but always stops abruptly at about 18%. Even if I just stream the episode straight from the Casebook site the affected episodes stop playing at precisely the same point. I have tried 3 different computers and 2 different operating systems as well as trying the download from Casebook as well as iTunes - the result is the same - the 6 episodes in question stop playing a little way in, at the same point.

The episodes are:

The Song and Dance Man Frogg Moody
Pupils of the Abyss with Prof LaVaughn Towell
The Case in Progress with Chris Scott
Jack in the Docks
Still Warm: The Murder of Mary Ann Nichols

All other episodes download and play perfectly from start to finish. I wonder if you can point me to an alternative download site for the above episodes or perhaps even send me copies of these 6 mp3 files, if it's not too much trouble. Sorry to trouble you as I am sure you have a busy life outside ripperology but it would be a shame, even a crime, to miss out on these 6! I have been rationing the others as I am not looking forward to the day I finish the final one in the archive! What will I do?!

Sorry if my query has been raised before. I checked and couldn't find any reference to it.

best wishes
Paul B

I downloaded the Prof Towell episode just fine via iTunes, so I assume I can get the rest as well. If you are still experiencing problems, email me at rippercast@gmail.com and I'll send you your missing episodes via attachments.

Thanks for the kind words about the show. More are in the works, I've been having computer OS problems lately (a complete and total crash. loss of recording and editing software) so as soon as I can I'll be up and running. We may see a slight format change, though.

Stay Tuned,



JM

Default Still no success

Thanks for the quick reply Jonathan. Bad luck about youe serious computer problem, they tell us its all only "ones and zeros," right!

I tried again to download the 5 episodes I am missing with no luck. Out of interest, did you try to play the Towell one you tested? Using iTunes the download bar closes and the files dutifully appear in the appropriate Windows folder but when I try to play them these five episodes stop abruptly midway through.

I'll send you an email as suggested Jonathan.

I'm excited to hear there are more episodes in the works and a revised format sounds intriguing!

Regards, Paul

PS: I dropped you a line on the Gmail address a few days ago but maybe it was lost in your computer problems.
