Summary

In 1888, between August and November, the women of London’s East End were terrorized by a deranged serial killer. A man was stalking the streets at night, seizing random women who worked those streets and killing them. This man mutilated his victim’s bodies after death, removing body parts and organs.

You will hear about:

  • The Whitechapel murderer’s hunting ground
  • Leather apron
  • The double murder 
  • The investigation
  • Letters from Jack the Ripper 
  • Who Jack the Ripper was 
  • And much more!

No one has ever been able to identify Jack the Ripper. Despite the best efforts of numerous police officers, media professionals, historians, and amateur detectives over more than a century, we know of dozens of suspects but no definitive perpetrator.

What we do know is the identity of Jack the Ripper’s victims - the canonical five women who lost their lives at his hands. This is the story not of Jack the Ripper’s life, about which we know nothing about, but of the lives of the women he destroyed. For better or worse, after Jack the Ripper, life on the streets of London would never be the same again.
