    26 | Jack The Ripper Part 6 : Mary Jane Kelly

    Join me for the penultimate episode of this mini-series where we’ll examine the death of the final canonical victim, in a bloodbath so unimaginable that it has become one of the most memorable Ripper murders, symbolic of his spiralling descent closer and closer to hell. We’ll look at Mary Jane Kelly’s life and try to understand the strange testimony of the witnesses as we encounter a visitor dressed in astrakhan, a man with a sinister black bag bothering women in the area, a missing key and more.

    25 | Jack The Ripper Part 5: The Murder of Catherine Eddowes & a clue at Goulston Street

    Let’s look at the second part of the so-called Double Event that chilled the people of Whitechapel to the bone on 30th September 1888. Catherine Eddowes was arrested for her own safety after being found drunk in the street, and ironically met her demise just 400 yards from the police station minutes after her release, her corpse mutilated in the most vicious and disgusting way that had yet been seen.

Best Jack the Ripper Podcast

Prash’s Jack the Ripper mini series is wonderfully well-researched, well-written and immersive. It feels both like an investigative podcast, a documentary, and a classic radio pulp serial. The production is top notch, and is well worth a binge or two. I have listened to it repeatedly, and can’t recommend it enough.

True crime podcasts are a dime a dozen, and most are shoddy at best. Prash’s Murder Maps stands out and is worth your time.

Excellent!

Truly a great true crime favourite. I listen to many tc podcasts and have been for two years. This has become one of the best I know of. You will love it.
