The Historic Case of Dudley & Stephens (Shipwreck Cannibalism)
1884 - far off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope discussion began between a group of men as to which one of them should be sacrificed so that the other three may have a chance of survival. They had already spent over two weeks out at sea on a deteriorating lifeboat; their paltry rations long gone and they were drifting out in the ocean half way between Africa and South America. Welcome to the historic case of Dudley & Stephens. Whoot! I’ve done a little bit of editing on this episode - although you’d probably never guess it. Thanks guys.

Elizabeth Woolcock and The Eureka Rebellion
In the mid 1800’s - Australia: the justice system did not show much mercy for women who were convicted of violent crime. As the court saw it: they had betrayed their feminine role. It was a treachery of sorts and for that they sacrificed any clemency. Welcome to the story of Elizabeth Woolcock - a woman who was given no mercy in life or death.
Thank you so much for your patience while I tackle some editing. It turns out that editing is not nearly as cumbersome as I had it pegged as. 1978 Illinois: The ‘Freedom Club’ wages a 17 year terror campaign - sending mail bombs indiscriminately targeting whoever associated with tech development or damage to the environment. The Unabomber’s 35,000 word manifesto would suggest he had a fair bit to say; yet he waited 15 years to mention any of it.

Around the Corner/Worlds Apart
Hi welcome - this is Nightmare Somewhere. In this episode I’m sharing two cases that occured in the Perth suburb of Carlisle. The first one is the 1931 murder-suicide of the Davies family and the second is the 2018 murder of Fahima Yusuf who was killed by her husband and buried in their backyard. The crimes did just occur streets apart and involve fathers in their 30’s who had planned and carried out an action that they thought might solve their hardships. I reckon that is where the similarities end hey. I’d really like to hear what you think of how they compare with one another. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
