42. Jack the Ripper ep 2 - The Whitechapel Murders

It's episode 2 on our coverage of the victims of Jack the Ripper and this episode we actually tell the story of the Whitechapel Murders. These are the 11 unsolved murders that took place in Whitechapel from 1888 to 1891, five of which are considered officially as victims of the notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper.

We also start the episode talking about Karens and the dawn of society's hatred of sex work, it makes sense we promise. And we talk a little bit about how difficult it is to review this case because there's a lot of missing information and a lot of mis-information.
