A Portsmouth Murder, Harold Loughans

This podcast is about a murder/killing that happened in Portsmouth during World War 2. Another case that showed the failings of the British legal system. Harold Loughans was a 'Dickensian' type character who did not anything positive, stealing his way through life and two world wars. However in my mind it was the arrogant Bernard Spilsbury who was the chief villain of the story. 

I try to make podcasts about unusual and unknown cases. They are low-fi and there is no editing, such as an ‘old time radio shows’. I am not a natural radio speaker, I stumble over certain words, for example in this podcast I say autonomy instead of anatomy. However, it is not the day job, it is just a hobby for me. The next podcast will be a paranormal story.
