Welcome to the first episode of A Bloody Mess: A Badly Researched True Crime Podcast. Join hosts Chen & James for their very first podcast (ever!), covering the birth, childhood and formative years of Murder House Architect, and general unrepentant psychopath, H H Holmes.

This should go without saying, but this discussion of murder and police evasion contains strong language, gruesome details, and one podcast host sniffing constantly, thinking his cold wouldn’t affect the recording.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, as would donations of homemade cakes & biscuits, travellers cheques or postal orders. Make sure you are following on social media for behind the scenes photos!
