Welcome To My Podcast

Let me take you back to Georgian Britain, to an underworld where the goods bartered were human bodies and discover a darker side to medical history  ‘Body Snatching’ – a subject that only makes it into the history books, if you’re lucky.

From anatomy riots, and bodies being hidden in dung heaps,  to finding cadavers stuffed into barrels and being transported throughout Britain, this is a true-crime podcast with a difference.

I’m passionate about sharing long-forgotten stories from Britain’s past, to recount tales of some of my favourite body snatchers and I’d love for you to join me.

You’ll also have the chance to be able to listen to my blog posts instead of reading them. I still give you all the same book recommendations and highlights from my posts just in a more accessible format.
