I was interviewed on Beyond Reality Radio (50 stations across the US and Canada) on June 20, 2018, by Ghost Hunters star Jason Hawes and J.V. Johnson on Jack the Ripper Suspect Dr. Francis Tumblety: Click on the pic. 

On March 27, 2019, I was again interviewed on by Jason and J.V. on Beyond Reality Radio but this time it was about the supposed recent discovery of identifying Jack the Ripper's DNA on a shawl found at the murder site of Ripper victim Catherine Eddowes. This made national news that the identity of Jack the Ripper was finally discovered. Well, this is not true. There are fatal errors in both the genetic testing and the provenance of the shawl.

The following are Rippercast episodes, which is the podcast of the expert community in the Jack the Ripper/Whitechapel mystery. You will quickly pick up upon this as you listen.

1) This episode occurred in December 2018 where a London journalist, Alec Fullerton, interviewed a group of ripperologists (I was honored to be one of them). He quickly realized the high level of scholarship involved in researching the Whitechapel mystery.


2) This episode occurred on June 3, 2018, which is a discussion about my recent book, Jack the Ripper Suspect Dr. Francis Tumblety:


3) I was asked to participate in a roundtable on writing fiction novels on the Whitechapel murders on February 4, 2018. Click on the image.


4) Brian Young and I did a lecture/book signing at the Cro Club in Buffalo, New York, the evening before Halloween 2017. 


5) The following interview has surprising discoveries, such as Tumblety showing a young man (seven years before the murders) his collection of surgical knives and telling him that all street walkers should be disemboweled.


6) I was interviewed on October 9, 2016, by Jonathan Menges about the research and discoveries that I published in The Ripper's Haunts. 


7) This episode records my participation in a suspect panel at Rippercon. My fellow panel members are Martin Fido and Robert Anderson.
