    Thread for discussion of Rippercast Episode 60- The Bank Holiday Murders: One on one with Tom Wescott.

    Available to stream or download here:

    As Tom can attest, this podcast is about 5 years in the making, as that's about how long I've been bugging him to be a guest on the show. So I'm grateful he gave so much of his time to share with us his extensive history and knowledge of the Whitechapel Murders.

    Thanks again, Tom!

    And thanks for listening,

      But only takes about half that time to listen to.

      Thanks, Jonathan.

      And thanks Steadmund, both for listening and getting the book!

      Yours truly,

      Tom Wescott

        Superb episode as always (this is my first post but I've been an avid listener and lurker for quite a while now and was really looking forward to the new podcast!). Well done everyone.

          I have to say that I found this podcast super interesting. I need my daughter to bring me a copy of Tom's book when she comes to visit me in Taiwan in a few weeks. I love that this isn't a suspect book, and that it attempts to put together a great case for the earlier murders being related, something that many of us suspected, but were afraid to utter for fear of an uprising.

          Also, Tom comes off as way less of a dick than I'd thought. Still a dick, but less of one.

          Seriously fascinating stuff.

                  Highly recommended, and like the book itself quite thought-provoking

                  All the best

                    Welcome back, Jonathan! I'm a great fan of the podcasts and it's great to see you back in the saddle again!

                    I'm looking forward to listening to this podcast (on the Eurostar, probably) and to reading Tom's book which I, too have purchased!

                    Keep up the great work guys!

                      There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
