    Murder Mile's 5th Anniverary - Behind the Mic

    As a special treat to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Murder Mile UK True Crime podast, I wanted to share with a rather lovely conversation I had with a wonderful group of true-crime podcasters who you may know. We recorded this in a little hotel room with no audience and a few pints.
    I've posted links to the shows of those involved:

    #187 - The Bearded Man - Part One

    #187 - The Bearded Man - Part One

    This is Part One of Two of The Bearded Man.
    12:45am on Saturday 14th January 1956, at the junction of Hertford Street and Park Lane in Mayfair, 34-year-old sex-worker Robina Bolton known as Ruby was last seen alive. The next morning she was found murdered in Flat 7 at 32 Westbourne Terrace, a flat she shared with her husband Ernest.
    Ernest would claim he last saw Ruby alive as she entered a taxi with an unidentified man. Seven hours later, he would stumble across the body of his wife having been brutally murdered in her bed.
    As her pimp who was flat broke, the only other person with a key to the flat and a laughable alibi that she was due to meet a man no-one had seen who he knew only as ‘the bearded man’, as the Police’s chief suspect, Ernest was questioned on suspicion of her murder. But was this the truth, or a lie?

    #185 - Driven to Obsession

    #185 - Driven to Obsession

    On Saturday 5th December 1992, 33-year-old travel agent Gillian Bennett entered Marn Garage at 370 Uxbridge Road, W12. With her life and career going well, she purchased a nearly-new bright-red K-reg Fiat Uno. Given a sense of freedom with her own car, this should have been an exciting chapter in her reassuringly safe little life.
    And yet, finding a series of odd mechanical issues which required the dealership’s attention, it wasn’t only the car which caused her problems, as two weeks later, this purchase would lead to her murder.

    #184 - A Woman's Sin

    #184 - A Woman's Sin

    Friday 31st July 1863. Wealthy merchant Frederick Chappell owned a small flat in a townhouse on the Marylebone Road. On the second floor, he secretly ensconced 24-year-old Emily Mitchell. Once his maid, now his pregnant mistress, she lived the life of a lady… but she could never be treated as his wife, as she was not of the right class. With the baby, due to be born in secret, even though its conception was as much his fault as it was hers, living in a world dominated by men, the impending child would be seen as her sin… not his… and therefore death would come to Salisbury mansions.

    #183 - Captain J A Ritchie and the End of the War

    At a little after 11:30pm on Friday 14th September 1945, Captain John Ritchie of the Canadian Army was attacked on Bourchier Street by two British soldiers clutching half a brick. But why? This is a case less about the man who died, or the men who did it, but how a war had shaped and then broke them?

Simply the Best!

Absolutely the best podcast I have listened too. You can tell Michael has put so much effort and time into these. I could listen to him all day. I was recommended by a friend who wasn’t wrong when they said he was brilliant. Thank you Michael xx

compassion?

listened to the last section of one of the more recent episodes and was made a little uncomfortable by the tone (like ‘uhhh… yeah so she was kicked and stamped in the head. and her husband identified her body *rifles through papers* defensive wounds on the arms… doctor said she’d had a brain haemorrhage from the stamping…. uh… what else have i got….’). These facts about a very real, very awful crime were just listed in a casual and rushed tone, which was jarring considering how heavy the subject matter was. Maybe it was an off episode, but I don’t really want to listen to another to test that thesis. I’m quite wary of the morality of true crime as a genre in general, and i think the final half of this podcast exemplifies some of my issues with it (ie a dissociation from the psychological fallout of these crimes).

Transported to the Scene of the Crime

I’ve been listening since about April time when Michael was being interviewed on another crime podcast. I gave Murder Mile a listen to and I’ve been hooked ever since. I know that he says it in his introduction but it’s true, you do feel like you’re actually there. It has honestly become my favourite and I never miss a week. Thank you Michael, you do a fantastic job!
