    How Henry the 8th got away with being a serial killer! | Crime and Punishment in London

Today we uncover 4 gruesome stories of people that died on his command including his one time wife Anne Boleyn and three people who stole his gold and conspired against him inside the Tower of London, Alice Tankerville, John Bawd and John Woolf.

    Kept In A Cage & Forced To Dance Till She Died | Sara Baartman "The Hottentot Venus"

    Sara or Saartjie Baartman spent her whole life under the rule of people who exploited her at every turn. Trafficked from South Africa her captors originally wanted her to be put on display as a living exhibit at the British Museum but when they refused, she was forced to dance on stage, night after night. As her popularity dwindled, she was forced by her "keepers" into the world of selling her body and from there, things became much worse.
    Today on Macabre London, we’ll be uncovering the story of Sara Baartman "The Hottentot Venus"

Fantastic!!

This is my absolute favorite podcast! Love the content and Nikki’s voice is tantalizing! The most recent one about Centralia was particularly cool because I live only a couple hours from there. Love this podcast!!
