Description

In March of 1892, a private detective named Charles Gardner was hired by the Reverend Doctor Charles Parkhurst, moral crusader and social reformer, as an escort through the seediest, vilest slums in New York City. The purpose of this slumming tour was so that Dr. Parkhurst could gather evidence to present to a grand jury to aid in their investigation of municipal corruption and neglect. Included here are allegedly truthful, highly colorful, and likely embellished excerpts from Gardner's 1894 book "The Doctor and the Devil, or the Midnight Adventures of Dr. Parkhust". I narrate chapters 4 and 5 of in this episode (which were the first two nights they hit the town together).

Midnight Potboiler is my third and final possible new addition to the Most Notorious lineup, a narration of a true-crime related historical fiction and non-fiction, all in the public domain
