144-The Murder Castle  

When detectives explored the Chicago hotel owned by insurance fraudster H.H. Holmes in 1894, they found a nightmarish warren of blind passageways, trapdoors, hidden chutes, and asphyxiation chambers in which Holmes had killed dozens or perhaps even hundreds of victims. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll follow the career of America's first documented serial killer, who headlines called "a fiend in human shape."

We'll also gape at some fireworks explosions and puzzle over an intransigent insurance company.

Intro:

In 1908 a Strand reader discovered an old London horse omnibus on the outskirts of Calgary.

If Henry Jenkins truly lived to 169, then as an English subject he'd have changed religions eight times.

Erehdysekspertti: Supersankari Sherlock Holmes on rasisti, sukupuolisovinisti ja narkkari: 24.03.2016 10.00  

Olemme tottuneet ajattelemaan, että rakastettu supersankari Sherlock Holmes on poikkeuksellisilla henkisillä kyvyillä varustettu salapoliisi, joka ratkoo rikoksia tieteellisen päättelyn avulla. Holmesin päättelymetodeissa on jopa samankaltaisuutta siihen, miten Sigmund Freud tutki ihmismielen salaisuuksia. Supersankari Sherlock Holmes on siis varsin luontevasti modernin ajan myytti. Mitkä seikat nostivat ja pitävät Holmesia jalustalla? Mikä on miehiään tämä Arthur Doylen 1887 luoma etsivä? Ja ennen kaikkea, millaista maailmankuvaa ja elämäntyyliä Sherlock Holmes edustaa? Sherlock Holmesin pimeään puoleen kuuluu huumeiden käyttö. Holmes käyttää 7 prosentin kokaiiniliuosta, jota hän tykittää suoraan suoneen. Annos on tappava, mutta koska Holmes on yli-ihminen, hän kestää myös tällaiset annokset. Holmes on addiktoitunut rikosten selvittelyyn, kun rikoksia ei ole selvitettävänä, hän taipuu melankolisuuteen ja masentuu. Helpotus ja mielihyvä löytyvät huumeista. Holmes esittää myös rasistisia käsityksiä ja solvaa mm. ihonvärin perusteella. Naisten älyllisiin kykyihin Holmes suhtautuu pilkallisesti. Näyttää siis vahvasti siltä, että rakastamamme supersankari Sherlock Holmes onkin rasisti, sukupuolisovinisti ja narkkari. Toisinaan hän on myös hullu ja ehkä ollut tohtori John Watsonin kanssa myös silleen. Kun perheen Pikku-Vesat ja Pikku-Kallet lukevat loistavaa Holmesia, niin on hyvä muistaa, että kirja opettaa muutakin kuin tieteellistä päättelyä. Erehdysekspertti Raimo Tyykiluodon vieraana on kirjallisuudentutkija Sanna Nyqvist Helsingin yliopistosta. Nyqvist tutki väitöskirjassaan pastisseja eli tyylijäljitelmiä, esimerkiksi muiden kirjailijoiden kirjoittamia Holmes-mukaelmia.

CHICAGO MURDER CASTLE  

A castle is normally thought of as an attractive and beautiful structure, but the Chicago Murder Castle did not possess either  of those qualities.  What it did possess was extremely  unpleasant and sinister.  Also, a World's Fair is normally a festive and enjoyable experience for most people, but one very evil person in Chicago around the time of the World's Fair of 1893, which was held in Chicago, had other ideas.

 

The evil person was Herman Webster Mudgett, with aliases that included Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, and H. H. Holmes.  He killed perhaps up to 200 individuals, and many of his victims were killed in a sadistic fashion.

 

The Chicago Murder Castle refers to the building that H. H. Holmes had built, by many different contractors, that was located about three miles from the site of the World's Fair.  He used different contractors so that no single contractor would be able to determine the intended purpose of some of the strange rooms of the hotel.  It was in this "castle" that Holmes committed many of his gruesome murders.

Holmes was eventually convicted of some of the murders and he was executed.  After his execution the Chicago Murder Castle was set on fire perhaps by some individuals that wanted that chamber of horrors destroyed so that there would be no legacy of it left in Chicago.  The building survived the fire and was in use for about another forty years, but it was eventually torn down in 1938.  Today it is the site of one of the branches of the United States Postal Service.

Talking TV With Ryan and Ryan, Episode 83: Talking With The Creators of 'The Adventures of Pete and Pete'  

Hi, it's Mo here with a Thangsgiving special for you. Almost exactly 20 years ago, Nickelodeon debuted a show that has gone on to lodge itself deeply in the hearts and minds of its fans. "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" was the story of two brothers -- both sporting red hair, both named Pete Wrigley -- and their slightly odd but lovable collection of friends, enemies, parents, teachers and neighbors. Rounding out the cast was, of course, Artie, the Strongest Man in the World. 

In this half-hour chat, creators Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi discuss the ideas behind the show, the reasons for the fervor of the fanbase and the reasons they've returned to Nickelodeon with a new(ish) project, "Sanjay and Craig." Enjoy, my little Vikings: I certainly had a wonderful time talking to these guys, and not just because they said I could play Female Older Pete if a movie spinoff ever got off the ground. 

By the way, for proof that my love of "Pete & Pete" runs deep, check this out. It's a "Pete & Pete" interview I did with McRobb and Viscardi in the mid-'90s. 

Be sure to subscribe to the new feed for the podcast here if you like to listen on iTunes. You'll see plenty of ways in each post to stream or download MP3s if you hate iTunes with the same fervor with which Endless Mike hates those who do not submit to his absolute dominion of shop class.

The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - The Cadaver In The Roman Toga (11-09-47)  


The Cadaver In The Roman Toga (Aired November 9, 1947)
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly so called — see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is one of the best known and most universally recognisable literary characters in any genre. Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories are narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson; two are narrated by Holmes himself, and two others are written in the third person. THIS EPISODE: November 9, 1947. Mutual network. "The Cadaver In The Roman Toga". Sponsored by: Clipper Craft Clothes. A corpse in an ancient Roman bath, discovered in England, leads Holmes to a plot by Dr. Moriarty to manufacture counterfeit coins.

The New Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - The Case Of The Demon Barber (01-28-46)  


The Case Of The Demon Barber (Aired January 28, 1946)
His earliest cases, which he pursued as an amateur, came from fellow university students. According to Holmes, it was an encounter with the father of one of his classmates that led him to take up detection as a profession and he spent the six years following university working as a consulting detective, before financial difficulties led him to take Watson as a roommate, at which point the narrative of the stories begins. From 1881, Holmes is described as having lodgings at 221B Baker Street, London, from where he runs his private detective agency. 221B is an apartment up seventeen steps, stated in an early manuscript to be at the "upper end" of the road. Until the arrival of Dr. Watson, Holmes works alone, only occasionally employing agents from the city's underclass, including a host of informants and a group of street children he calls the Baker Street Irregulars. The Irregulars appear in three stories, "The Sign of the Four", "A Study in Scarlet" and "The Adventure of the Crooked Man". THIS EPISODE: January 28, 1946. Mutual network. "The Case Of Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber". Sponsored by: Petri Wines. Holmes and Watson try to keep an actor who is portraying a fiendish killer, from being driven crazy. Holmes fails when the actor is found with his throat slit, just as Sweeney Todd would have done it! Holmes almost makes a very serious mistake. The story is based on, "The Yellow Face." Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Harry Bartell (announcer), Denis Green (writer), Anthony Boucher (wrtier), Dean Fosler (music), Arthur Conan Doyle (author), Edna Best (producer). 31:27. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.


Sherlock Holmes uppgång och fall  

Mästerdetektiven Sherlock Holmes är mer inne än på länge. I färskt minne har vi till exempel BBC-serien med en nutida Sherlock Holmes, och i höst kommer ytterligare en Sherlock Holmes-film på bio med Noomi Rapace i en av de kvinnliga rollerna. Men i år är det också 120 år sedan Sherlock Holmes avlivades av sin skapare Arthur Conan Doyle som, trött på sin populäre detektiv, lät honom utkämpa en dödlig kamp i Schweiz med professor Moriarty. Mats Carlsson-Lenart reste i världens mest kände detektivs fotspår, till vattenfallet där Sherlock Holmes drunknade – eller gjorde han verkligen det…?

Dessutom handlar det om den potentiella miljardmarknad som finns på våra museer och i våra arkiv. Under en träff i riksdagshuset i förra veckan diskuterades hur vårt kulturarv kan omsättas i en ny lönsam marknad genom att foton, journalfilmer, databaser och kartor digitaliseras på ett sådant sätt att privata entreprenörer kan utveckla olika mobil- och webbtjänster. Institutionerna sitter på en guldgruva som snart kanske finns i var mans mobil.

Programledare är Urban Björstadius.
