    The Soho Strangler... coming soon to Murder Mile

    The Soho Strangler... coming soon to Murder Mile

    After months (and even years) of research, I'm proud to announce the new series coming to Murder Mile, it's titled The Soho Strangler; a little known series of murders as infamous (in its day) as Jack the Ripper itself. And yet, barely eighteen months after the killing spree, it was almost entirely forgotten.
    Told for the very first time, The Soho Strangler is an investigation into Britain's long-forgotten serial killer using the original declassified court records and police investigation files, as we delve into the seedier side of Soho, and enter a world of drugs, sex, white slavery and murder.
    The Soho Strangler starts on Thursday 9th February 2023, or a few days earlier via Patreon.

    #196 - In Too Deep - Part Two

    This is Part Two of Two of In Too Deep.
    On 12th March 1968, at 11:10am, a gang of incompetant robbers staged a home invasion of the Flat 35 at Falmouth House, the home of a wealthy stockbroker and his pregnant wife. Having badly under-estimated his wealth, they set about trying to sell the last item of his worth anything - his car. But what starts as a simple robbery, ends in a horrific double murder.

    #195 - In Too Deep - Part One

    #195 - In Too Deep - Part One

    This is Part One of Two of In Too Deep.
    Back in 1968, Flat 35 on the fifth floor was an elegant and stylish two-bedroomed apartment owned by newly-weds; 53-year-old stockbroker Michael O’Carroll and 25-year-old model Janet Williams.
    Being a secure home, these flats have buzzers, intercoms, cameras, porters and service bells to ensure the residents safety. But on 12th March 1968 - as many homes have - Flat 35 was burgled.
    It had been planned as a simple get in-grab it-and get out caper, so this should have been an easy job for the robbers. But being planned by a gang who were both inept and ill-equipped, their home invasion would turn from a hostage situation into a brutal double murder.

    #194 - The Gay Panic

    #194 - The Gay Panic

    1962, the basement flat at 17 Pembroke Court in West Kensington was owned by George Brinham; a respected trade unionist and chairman of the Labour Party, who was hailed as a Prime Minister in the making. And yet, there is no blue plaque to George Brinham. Some might say this was down to his political affiliations, others might imply it was owing to his love life, but maybe it’s simply down to a scandal which on Saturday 17th November 1962, led to his murder.
    But why was George Brinham killed, and did a quirk of the law let his murderer go free?

    #193 - A Spoiled Brat

    #193 - A Spoiled Brat

    On the 2nd of June 1935, Ms Riley, owner of a two-floor flat at 19 Gloucester Avenue in Regent’s Park asked her friend, 63-year-old Louise Gann to house-sit while she went on holiday. 
    Feeling a little lonely in a spacious two-floor flat, for three weeks in June, Louise was accompanied by her 20-year old daughter Maxine and Maxine’s boyfriend, 28-year-old Alan Grierson.
    The morning of Saturday 22nd June 1935 had started much the same as any other. They’d had a cup of tea, a cooked breakfast, and – as Maxine and Alan headed off to work – they had agreed to meet later, to head off on a romantic weekend away in Torquay, as Louise stayed in, to housesit. It was very much an ordinary day… only Louise’s fateful decision to stay behind, would lead to her murder…
    …and it was all because of a spoiled little brat.

Favorite podcast. #110

Best podcast and podcaster ever 10/10 Really and truly that death was caused by negligence not just from the stab wound and they knew even in 1940 how to use a tourniquet As time goes by Michael has become apart of my life I listen to his podcasts over and over just to listen to his voice and the way he tells a brilliant story I love Michael B - D
BEST PODCAST FULL STOP 🛑

MBeech ,

One of, if not, the best

Michael has the best researched and produced true crime podcast. I’ve heard many, many true crime shows and I’ve never been so impressed.

Michael gives such a detailed and moving show. It’s almost brought me to tears listening to some of the stories of the victims.

His sarcasm at the beginning of the show is entertaining, his descriptions are keen and his re-enactments are enthralling. Kudos!

megadrama ,

Entertaining and thoroughly researched!

I have really been enjoying Mike’s well-written and atmospheric treatment of UK true crime stories. He is affable and witty, yet appropriately sensitive and respectful. His Extra Mile feature is a highlight for me. Tea and cakes and coots, oh my! Love it!
