In this episode..better late then never.. we give you part two of the newest Teddy and the Bassman/Lucky 10,000 crossover where we discuss the most famous unsolved mystery in this season..  the ever fascinating and iconic, Jack The Ripper. Trevor, being a former homicide detective in Scotland Yard, has always had a fascination with The Ripper, and Teddy, being an anglophile, has plenty of research under her belt as well. Evan pretty much just wants to sound smart. We go through what White Chapel was like, we talk the canonical five and delve a little into some non-canonical, and talk our fave suspects and we get into our favorite media involving Saucy Jack.

We go disturbing and creepy this week as Evan and Carissa explore the enduring fascination with serial killers.  Ranging from well-known Jack the Ripper to surprisingly obscure Elizabeth Bathory with several stops in between, we discuss the deeds (and misdeeds) of some of history's most notorious murderers.  Why are people so captivated by the dark and horrible exploits of our most broken fellows?  What makes an unsolvable crime so enthralling?  Myths and legends surrounding killers of old still spark interest in our modern minds, and Evan digs deep into these mysteries to puzzle out why.

Even just yesterday, HuffPo published an article about an author trying to uncover facts about Jack the Ripper, furthering proof that our collective curiosity never fades.
