Old Timey Crimey #51: Frederick Deeming - “Victorian Tinder”

March 6, 2020

This week, we take a look at country-hopping murderer Frederick Deeming. From Great Britain to Australia to South Africa to Great Britain to South America and so on, this guy loved to get on a boat and brag about things that never happened--when he wasn't murdering.

Plus, the Feel Better Sweater, Australian pub names, and introducing live fact checker, Johnny Eponymous!
