    I don't want to distract from Robert Anderson's talk, but I wonder whether any of the other presentations at Salisbury were recorded, and whether we can look forward to hearing them in due course.

    Hi all,

    This special episode of Rippercast brings to you researcher Robert Anderson's talk given at the Whitechapel Society 1888's 2014 conference in Salisbury. His chosen topic was tertiary syphilis and its widespread presence amongst the prostitutes and their clients in the East End of London in the late Victorian Period. He discussed its symptoms, treatments, and how it may have affected victims and suspects in the Autumn of Terror.
