This week we learned about Jack the Ripper's brutal murders. After you listen to the regular episode, this bonus episode will help us get a little better historical context. You'll get a peek into some of the research that goes into episodes as we follow each murder with articles and reports from the time of Jack the Ripper's reign of terror in London.

Be warned, this episode contains some very disturbing content about the Jack the Ripper murders. Listen to this on your own before listening with kids.
