Hi Jonathan. I'd like to take you up on your kind offer to email my half dozen missing epsiodes as attachments. The episodes in questions are:
One on One with Stan Russo

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
Thanks for your time and trouble and for this superb series
PS: A bit more investigation into these failed downloads reveals quite a lot of similar chatter about podcasts on Apple related forums. The failure is associated with iTunes error code 3259 and occurrs commonly but there's no obvious solution. Weird.
Rippercast will be recording the first of a series of new shows tomorrow (Sunday 27 March). Special guest: Trevor Bond. We'll be catching up by discussing recent Ripper related media, conferences, discoveries and theories. Expect the usual panel of experts joining in.
By tomorrow evening USA time, you should be able to access the show via the Ripper Podcast link on the Casebook menu bar, or in the iTunes music store, searchword- Rippercast.
