  • The Ripper's Haunts- An interview with author Michael Hawley

    Rippercast welcomes Michael Hawley, author of 'The Ripper's Haunts', a new book about Jack the Ripper suspect Dr. Francis Tumblety. We cover a wide range of topics in this one-on-one interview including Tumblety's time in the Civil War, his reported hatred of women, and the likelihood that he was in fact 'Jack the Ripper'.

    Considering how closely Tumblety was looked at at the time surely if he was JTR he would have at the very least been charged with some or all the C5.

    Yep, I don't think he was Jack, (may have been) but the police sure took an interest in him, and not a nice bloke either way, and a great book.

    Where's the evidence to suggest that Tumblety was JTR? Because I can't find any.

    The hard work you put in shows thru Jon, you do an amazing job, I can't say that enough, it's so nice to hear someone so knowledgeable, and interested discussing these topics, unlike so many other podcasts dedicated to topics like this, and you never let your personal beliefs taint an episode, agree or disagree with a guest,you keep your professionalism, even when questioning comments made.

    I also loved your idea of re-visiting older shows for updates.... would very much like to hear that...and always welcome new topics and guests...

    and again, if there is ever anything you need, please feel free to reach out..I am always willing to help or contribute in anyway, in fact I just got asked to work as a "technical advisor" on a stage play being done here in my hometown about the last night of Mary Kelly... and one of the first things I did, was recommend that the actress and producer listen to your podcast on Mary Kelly....

    Steadmund Brand
    Your work on the play sounds interesting, indeed the play itself sounds interesting.

    I've noticed the same thing, and not only with the podcast but when new issues of Ripperologist Magazine are announced, and with the Rip those announcement threads are made less and less frequently. I'd say "remember the good old days?" but I'm not sure how many current posters actually would.

    But we'll soldier on. More people are subscribing to the podcast than ever before, and the subscription list of the Rip just grows and grows.

    All the best,

    Those accents (not mikes) can make it hard sometimes.

    Thank you, Jonathan, for giving me this interview! If anyone is interested, this was not just a brief discussion and synopsis of my book. Jonathan posed very direct questions he, and many others, have about Tumblety, from the unusual coincidences surrounding the Civil War to him being a woman hater and even the likelihood of Dr. T being Jack the Ripper.

    I may as well announce another find here. I have yet another example of Francis Tumblety not only being a misogynist but also treating a certain population of females badly.

    Sincerely,

    Mike
    Ya know the more I hear about this Tumblety guy, he sounds to me like a real jerk....
