Rippercast: The Whitechapel Murders Podcast
Joseph Merrick, The Elephant Man
July 25th, 2015
Duration: 02:45:20

Episode 63 welcomes Friends of Joseph Carey Merrick Chairperson and founder Jeanette Sitton to the show, along with historical researchers Philip Hutchinson and Neil Bell, to discuss the life and times of an individual that was perhaps the most famous resident of the East End of London during the time frame of the Whitechapel Murders: Joseph Merrick, the Elephant Man. Jeanette Sitton is also the co-author with Mae Stroshane of the essential Merrick biography 'Measured By The Soul'. Philip Hutchinson is the playwright and co-star of the Lucky Dog Theatre Production's play 'Mr. Merrick, The Elephant Man'. Neil R. A. Bell is the author of 'Capturing Jack the Ripper: In the Boots of a Bobby in Victorian London' as well as being responsible, along with Adam Wood, for the reissue of 'Howard Vincent's Police Code 1889'. This interview was conducted by Jonathan Menges.
