      Enjoyed the photographs. Any word on what they intend to build in place of the old brick houses and factories?

        Mostly offices.

          Offices in the case of Mitre Square and Dorset/ Duval St, an extended Whitechapel station to accommodate Cross rail and various underground tunnels, shafts etc for the same in the case of Durward St. I should point out that it's only in the case of the former that anything Victorian has come down this time, in the others that happened some time ago.

            Time marches on, I suppose. Whether it brings progress is a matter of opinion. Denver "gentrified" its old industrial areas of downtown years ago, putting up expensive apartment buildings and fancy offices.

                  I believe the problem is on iTunes' end as tons of people are experiencing problems on their computers and phones. It shows up (obviously) and the show streams fine on the iTunes.com site so they have pinged the podcast. In the mean time, you can download the episode by right clicking here:

                  I'll keep checking in, hopefully they'll have it resolved soon.

                        Thanks. I discovered the problem. As soon as I can break into Casebook's server and fix it, it should be back up and running. I'll post here again when repairs are complete.

                          I believe I fixed the issue but it may take a while for iTunes to update with the new file.

                          And whoever left the one star review because of this technical problem- thanks for taking the time to do that. I'm glad that all of the Rippercast's participants hard work was considered and appreciated.
